Handmade Leather Camera Straps


Leather Camera Straps

Our handmade leather camera straps are made from Horween Chromexcel leather. One of the softest, most durable leathers in the world. Made in Chicago, in a 5 storie building and taking 28 days to tan, it is the only leather we would ever use for our camera straps.

Our straps are soft, durable and have almost no colour-transference. We make leather camera neck straps and leather camera wrist straps for: Leica, Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fujifim, Olympus and more.

Handmade in England in a workshop that has more than 200 years experience in making leather goods. Our premium camera straps are designed to be the finest on Earth. Don’t take our word for it, read the reviews.

Leather and Canvas Camera Bags

Luxurious Camera Bags

We are makers of ultra premium, stylish camera messenger bags. Designed by photographers for photographers. Our philosophy, is to “measure twice, cut once”. We have taken inspiration from the humble English field bag and created a timeless camera bag using old-world construction techniques.

All of our camera bags are handmade in England using the finest materials on Earth, including: Tweed, Italian, English and Belgian leather, triple layered waterproof canvas and custom nickel, or solid brass fittings. We offer a warranty against defects for the life of the camera bag. In our current throwaway society, we have created something to stand the test of time.

Our high-end, luxurious camera bags are made for discerning photographers, who are looking for something unique in this overcrowded, synthetic camera bag market.


High Quality Accessories


High Quality Accessories

We offer a highly curated selection of handmade accessories, for use both on and off the camera. Such as: soft release buttons, hot shoe covers, leather passport holders, leather card holders, etc.

All of the accessories we sell are made to the same exacting standards as our premium camera bags and luxury camera straps.

In some cases we have reached out to other artisans in our industry and asked them to make us one of their products, but with our logo on it. That is the case for our soft release buttons and hot shoe covers.

In other cases, we have designed and manufactured our own high quality accessories from one of the trusted workshops we use in the UK.



“I’ve owned this bag for almost a year now. Having drawn many an admiring glance and comment, this is the bag that says ‘I am proud to be a photographer and I care about my equipment’.”

Felix Kunze

“I love Hawkesmill’s camera straps and bags. Its about classic style, its about quality, it’s about tradition and like me, they may get a little bashed around as we travel the world, but they are built to last, wont let me down and just get better with age.

Giles Duley

“I received my camera bag this afternoon and was really impressed with the beautiful presentation when opening the packing box. You really must be complimented on the superb design it is a beautiful example of fine British craftsmanship.”
