Lust List: Exotic leather Apple Watch skins by Ullu

Among the types of leather you can find at Ullu are Italian calf’s leather; ostrich, ethically sourced from South Africa; and stingray, ethically sourced from Thailand. Each of Ullu’s straps is produced in compliance with international laws regarding animal protection and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

If you’re not opposed to sporting animal hide, the story of stingray leather might be of interest. Ullu writes on its blog that Samurai warriors used stingray leather on the hilts of their swords because it did not get slick when covered with the blood of the enemy. Tales aside, stingray is one of the most precious leathers on the market. This luxe and highly-resistant material is expertly handcrafted to give the bands a brilliantly shiny, pearly effect.

As far as exotic skins go, ostrich leather is a gold standard for its unique, bumpy texture and durability. As each animal hide is different, so is each and every handcrafted Ullu strap.

And, off course, a fine piece of Italian cowhide with the Ullu treatment can add a rich look to your Apple Watch. The company offers its premium leather and hand-colored leather bands for $99 in beautiful, rich hues.

Genuine Apple adapters — no fakes here!

Unlike the majority of vendors creating bands for Apple Watch, Ullu uses genuine Apple lugs for all of its bands — upping its quality game (and price tag) from its competitors. These adapters sit perfectly flush with your Apple Watch.

Based in Dubai, Ullu’s philosophy on product creation is a nod to the finer things in life. The luxury brand prides itself on crafting by hand premium leather Apple Watch accessories for its discerning clientele from whom Ullu gleans its style cues. Handmade and finished by skilled artisans, each strap is unique, beautiful and impeccably finished. Only the best in high-quality craftsmanship.
