Surfers' paradise, Playa Pavones, in the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica has the longest left in the world. The World.
To celebrate it we created the Pavones necklace. We start with the finest veg tanned leather from Wicket & Craig and a hand-made brass s-loop. After cutting the strap, we soak it in ocean water (Costa Rican, of course) and let it dry in the tropical sun. We then simply oil it. The ocean water adds texture as well as minerals that produce the unique look on the leather. After a month or two of wear, the leather will turn darker brown and the closure will develop a yummy patina. The leather is thin (1.2mm) and incredibly strong. Given the nature of its production, each is a little different and possibly not exactly as shown in the photo (but close!).
Entirely made by hand, here in North Texas (except the soaking part).
Available in five sizes to fit every wrist. Measured closed. If you need a different size, we can accommodate it at no additional cost, just send us a message with your order number and exact measurement.
