Kickstarter launched by alumni duo for new camera strap

Two Loughborough graduates, Sam Rogers and Edwin Towler, have recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for their new product.

The pair have designed a 100% leather-free camera strap, StrapOne, made for cameras, binoculars and more.

The strap is made from heavy-duty webbing, sailcloth, aluminium, and nylon thread and will come in a range of colours. The alumni have a goal of £5,000 on Kickstarter.

Alumnus Sam is an engineer and designed a Jetsuit as part of his final year project in 2019. He is the Jetsuit design lead and test pilot at Gravity Industries as well as being a passionate filmmaker.

Edwin is a professional wildlife photographer and filmmaker as well as a qualified product designer.

Sam and Edwin graduated in 2019 with degrees in Product Design and Technology.
