The ages of natural leather

Care instructions


If you want the absolute most natural and patinated look for your Remmen you only have to use it a lot. The natural fats and waxes from the vegetable tanning will dissolve from the heat from your hands and dirt, water and grease will in time give your Remmen a unique look, much like old leather belts.

For maximum durability we recommend that you treat your Remmen with a gentle leather conditioner every now and then. Remember to clean your Remmen first and wipe off any excess conditioner to not clog the pores of the leather. Please note that the Remmen No 1 ”Natural” will darken faster if treated with leather conditioner.
Like our skin, leather needs to breathe as well. Do not store your Remmen in a plastic bag or any nonporous covers, which may result in mould growth. Cover with breathable cloth such as cotton sheets when storing. Cleaners that contain alcohol, turpentine, and mineral spirits must never be used on your Remmen.

Mount the flatmount extension

To fit your Remmen strap to a camera equipped with a flat mounting lug, such as a Canon DSLR, we have developed the Remmen flat-mount extension. In this guide we will show you how to use it.

Step 1 – The things you’ll need: the Remmen strap, the Remmen flatmount extension, your camera and a flat screwdriver (not shown).

Step 2 – Run the flatmount extension through the flat lugs, with the back (flesh) side away from the camera.

Step 3 – These are the screws that will hold the flatmount extension in place. Don’t lose them!
Step 4 – Press the bolt through the bottom hole of the flatmount extension from the front (grain) side.
Step 5 – Place the ring of the Remmen strap over the bolt.
Step 6 – Continue by fitting the nut through the hole of the protective leather flap of the Remmen strap.
Step 7 – Run the nut through the hole on the other end of the flatmount extension to close the loop.
Step 8 – Screw the screw into the nut at tighten it with a screwdriver.
Done! Your camera is ready for action!
Don’t forget to check the screws from time to time to assert that they still are tight.
