      Introducing 16" Color Key Straps in Wasabi and Cayenne.
      Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

      Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

          I'm glad you like it!

          You guys might notice that the old pictures show black thread while the new pictures show color-matched thread. The very first Color Key Straps that we made had the black thread, and those were the first that we photographed. Before the first Color Key Straps shipped, we decided to switch to color-matched thread -- we felt it looked even better. Here's the catch: while it's more labor intensive all around to make Color Key Straps than the regular Black Key Strap, what is especially time consuming is switching the colored thread. We use a double-needle sewing machine and a bartack machine to make the Color Key Strap. The double-needle requires we change two top threads and 2 bobbin threads, and the bartack requires one top thread and one bobbin thread change -- for each different color of Key Strap. Because of this, we may need to increase the price of the Color Key Strap in the future -- so you may want to order now!

              See? Such effort and the quality shows. Worth paying for such!

              Still, I'll have to wait to place my order...saving up for another bag. (Too expensive to ship just the key straps out of the country!)

                Even worse to ship to Australia!
