Nice old fashioned straps, properly made from proper leather - Well? What more could you ask for?
Oh yes - a solid brass buckle that doesn't rust. Woohoo! its even got one of those.
Just so you know: these straps are purrfect for cat baskets... Do check in case you need a little more length - 8" is available.
We don't want anyone escaping on the way to vets, now do we?
Q: What's a foot long and slippery?
A: A slipper.
