Apple Watch has a thing for style. Your wrist is the perfect spot for a subtle yet effective statement en la moda.
Apple-centric accessories brand ullu answers the call for tangible luxury with a line of fine-leather bands for Apple Watch. On some bands, the word fine understates what is actually exotic.

Best List: Ullu’s Exotic Leather Bands for Apple Watch
Among the types of leather you can find at ullu are Italian calf’s leather; ostrich, ethically sourced from South Africa; and stingray, ethically sourced from Thailand.
If you’re not opposed to sporting animal hide, the story of stingray leather might be of interest. Ullu writes on its blog that Samurai warriors used stingray leather on the hilts of their swords because it did not get slick when covered with the blood of the enemy. Tales aside, stingray is one of the most precious leathers on the market. This luxe and highly-resistant material is expertly handcrafted to give the bands a brilliantly shiny, pearly effect.
As far as exotic skins go, ostrich leather is a gold standard for its unique, bumpy texture and durability. As each animal hide is different, so is each and every handcrafted ullu strap.
And, off course, a fine piece of Italian cowhide with the ullu treatment can add a rich look to your Apple Watch. The company offers its premium leather and hand-colored leather bands for $99 in beautiful, rich hues.

Unlike the majority of vendors creating bands for Apple Watch, ullu uses genuine Apple lugs for all of its bands — upping its quality game (and price tag) from its competitors. No fakes here.
