Our leather handlebar tape is made from 6ft+ seamless leather strips with smooth finished edges. This is long enough to fit padding underneath the bar tape. This leather bar wrap will also fit odd shaped and Ergo bars for most bicycles.
Our acorn leather bar tape is made from a hot wax finished hide, and is extremely easy to clean. This handle bar tape will maintain its color throughout its lifetime, darkening only slightly. These long leather bar tapes are also excellent for wrapping as bicycle grips.
If you're looking for a color match to your Brookes saddle, this tape is likely your best bet from our selections. This color will look darker on the roll when you receive it, but lightens when wrapped around your bars.
We strive to make local, sustainable cycling products for all cyclist and bicycle riders.
This tape comes in three styles:
Classic Tape- This is our smoothest style. It is simple, no decorations and lets the texture and grain of the leather shine. This style is best if you prefer to ride without gloves and like a smooth feel.
Stitched- Stitching offers an additional layer of grip to the surface as well as providing some visual texture and color to the tape. We offer custom color stitched options (link).
Stitched and Perforated- S&P tape offers the most visual decoration but does not offer much additional grip. S&P tape should be conditioned more due to the perforations allowing more surface area for sweat or water to infiltrate.
Each set comes with finishing cord and leather capped cork bar ends.
Handmade in Austin, TX.

Classy, posh, aesthetically pleasing, and good-smelling. What more do you need?
I found the tape to be strong and beautiful. Installing it, I stretched it to get it tight and it worked wonderfully. I double wrapped this and the result is very comfortable; not to mention how cool it looks. This is a beauty upgrade for any loved bike.!
So far so good. I've only had it on the bike for a couple of months but it is wearing very well. Looks great!
My overall experience with the stitched, and perforated, handlebar tape has been excellent. The tape went on easily, feels good, and looks great.
This leather tape is very good, exceeded my expectations. I liked how it was thin enough to stretch and maintain shape once wrapped, but think enough to feel sturdy. I appreciated the additional leather conditioner and end plugs. Will see how it ages
