Make Apple’s most personal device as unique as you are with a truly distinctive, statement-making strap worthy of a double take. The exotic Batik Strap for Apple Watch from Clessant is a refreshing take on an everyday accessory. No two are ever alike. And, you can get ahold of it now in Cult of Mac’s new Watch Store!
Truly a work of art for your wrist, the Batik Strap for Apple Watch stands out in sea of sameness with its unique and colorful fabric. Each handmade strap features a calf-leather core and a liner wrapped in exotic batik-printed cotton cloth. Folded edges and reinforced stitching on the strap’s point help prevent wear.
Batik is an ancient art form of wax-resist dyeing most highly developed in Java, Indonesia. Batik is made by drawing dots and lines with wax on fabric, and subsequently selectively dyeing the cloth. This allows the artisan to control the dyeing to give it a unique, handprinted aspect.
Born of a collaboration between French company Clessant and Apple Watch superfan Ryan Verbeek, an Indonesian living in the Netherlands, the band is a beautiful blend of ancient Indonesian art, batik and French leather-making.
Clessant is making a big impression in the world of luxury accessories. Recently featured in Vogue (and Cult of Mac!), the company takes craftsmanship to detailed levels. The making of a Clessant strap is a specific and complicated process, with more than 60 different steps to completion.
Each Batik Strap is cut from a large piece of batik fabric, guaranteeing a truly custom and unique piece — no two straps are alike. They come in either red or blue batik fabric. Available in 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch sizes, and four lug colors (silver stainless steel, silver aluminum, space gray and space black).
