Shop: We’re Back

First of all: Happy New Year everyone! We wish you a fantastic 2019. I’d like to personally also thank YOU for believing in us, supporting us and inspiring us. Your support means the world to us, without you, none of what is DE GRIFF is possible. Thank you for supporting our little venture, we so very much appreciate it.

Our Workshop is now back up and running. Everyone, including the tanneries, took some time off during the holidays, so from a practical standpoint it’s just easiest to simply briefly close the workshop through that particular period. It also helps to then completely and fully recharge our batteries during the downtime, which is never bad. Thanks for understanding that. As per good old tradition, we like to re-open with a bit of the proverbial bang, and the shop is banging alright.

The Original Series and Tool Series received some major TLC. We want to expressly thank the people who have been helping us with testing these new straps out during the past few months, you’re awesome. There are a few (major) updates incoming for the Classic Series as well, we’ll keep you posted on that, expect an update very soon – it’ll be quite dashing indeed.

We are still awaiting replenishment on specific shipments, due to the holidays these are running a bit delayed, but nothing major. You’ll see the goods affected by that listed as ‘Coming Soon’, and they are indeed coming very soon. As always, we continuously update the store and what’s available, this is by no means the last update to the store for the year, and not even for this month πŸ˜‰

Thanks a lot y’all!


  1. Jan & Team! First of all, Happy New Year! Second of all, the update is SICK! I feel terrible today (NY hangover tradition…) – but this brightens it up quite a bit. Love your work, keep going at it, amazing what you keep coming up with at every single release. Jawdropping man! Also – did you just get tattoos or do you just have really cool friends and customers?

    1. Not my arm man – and as you know I have the coolest of friends AND customers πŸ˜„πŸ™ Thanks a lot – you know how much I appreciate your everlasting support!! πŸ‘Š Good luck with the hangover man πŸ™ˆ Thank you thank you and again – Happy Newyear!

  2. Store is LIT AF! I never knew how much I needed a leather NATO strap in my life until today! Order placed gents, beautiful work. You’ve been teasing us the past few weeks on instagram with a few of em, I could no longer resist. Happy to hear you all took some time off, much deserved.

    1. Jay – thanks a lot, really! You ordered faster than I could put up the post giving the news! πŸ™‚ Did not mean those posts as teasers, genuinely loved those straps and couldnt wait sharing the pics! πŸ™‚ Thousand thanks – will make sure your package gets a β€œfirst of the year” NY bonus πŸ™πŸ‘ŠπŸ₯‚

  4. Jan – incredible update man. It was a pleasure testing out the awesome rust nato. Hands down the most unique strap in my collection! I really dig how you guys added a bit of spice (or fire) to the strapworld. This update is yet again a clue as to why you rock so many wrists around the globe. I’ll say it if no one else will: F*cking great work. Will wait a bit before ordering as I’m sure you’re getting a crazy influx right after opening, but I’m gonna splurge like it’s 2019 in a week or two πŸ˜‰

    Happy newyear, all the best to you, your family and the team behind the scenes. Was great seeing you for the holidays, hope to see you here in BKK soon too (fingers crossed)

    Best wishes,
    You know who

    1. It was great seeing you again my friend! And thank you for the Sangsom (do I say that right?)! It is encouraging to read your message, and we really appreciate it!

      WIth a bit of luck we make it to BKK either late this year or very early next year, one of those should definitely happen. Can not wait, already looking forward to it!

      Thousand thanks for your help and support along the way. Means a lot to me!
