Felt is the New Leather. Huh? Say what?!

It’s a pretty safe bet that when you want to add a new watch your wardrobe you’ll be offered a few strap options. Let’s see: There’s classic leather, metals, either mesh or bracelets and nylon. Occasionally we see a high-tech ceramic or sometimes rubber. But this is the first time we’ve ever seen felt!

Spreading a little homespun Nordic charm, Skagen has just debuted it’s Anchor lines complete with felt strap. According to the brand, we should think of felt, which is made from heat-treated wool, as a fabric version of leather: it’s durable and comfortable. But we also think the fabric is achingly cool – especially in the cool greys and deep blues Skagen has put on its Anchors. Who wouldn’t want to wear this with a pared back jeans and shirt combo this winter?

Take a look at the watches here, with a few other felt founds that Skagen is launching, and then click on the link to find out more about felt.
