Adjusting Your Shoulder Strap
At Brahmin, we want your handbag to feel comfortable and fit your style. Most of our straps are adjustable to create a desired strap drop length. Follow these simple instructions to adjust your strap as needed.
Start by sliding the leather loop over the collar button to the opposite side of the strap. Force the button out of the strap hole - there is a small slit above the hole that may need to be pried open a bit to help remove the button.
Bring the end of the strap up to the hole you would like to adjust it to. Our basic strap will allow you to double over the entire strap for a much shorter, shoulder bag look.
Push the button through the hole and slide the leather loop back over the collar button, to where the strap now attaches to the handbag. Adjust the opposite side of the strap if needed.
If you need assistance or have any questions about adjusting your strap, call our repairs department at 800-229-2428.
