Etsy love … camera strap

Is there a more perfect strap for my camera anywhere? I think not – lovely Etsy has tempted me yet again with more fabulousness. This wonderful item is from Porteen Gear. And I want everything, but am happy to settle for the strap. For now!

The very first thing I did when I got my too-fabulous-for-words DSLR, who answers to Norma, was take off the horrid bulky strap with the branding plastered all over it. I’ve been searching for a suitable alternative ever since.
Another tricky item was finding a camera bag that wasn’t nylon and didn’t feature velcro and look like it was found in an outdoor camping shop.
I did find a leather moulded case which is just shy of being fabulous simply because it’s modern black with red stitching and I would have given anything for it to be old-school leather.
Meanwhile I’ll just adore this vintage camera and case from my camera collection for all it’s battered and worn loveliness.

CurlyPops - Have you thought about unpicking/cutting off the fittings from the ugly camera strap, and putting them onto a lovely handmade fabric strap?
