Figosa is an Italian leather strap for photo cameras, especially for analog or mirrorless cameras. All the Figosa straps are handcrafted, in genuine leather and available in four colors: black, dark brown, cognac and honey.

They are used to go to flea markets, looking for more cameras to enlarge their collection. They noticed that most of the cameras found had a very consumed strap or in many cases they had none. Since Andrea and Laura are not only collectors, but first of all cameras users, the straps play a very important role. So they decided to make these leather vintage-style straps by themselves and to sell them online on Etsy.
