The Walnut Sew-on Leather Bar Wrap is a stylish, vintage-era leather bar tape with a modern aesthetic, sewn by hand onto your bars for the perfect fit (and that distinctive stitched look). Leather bar tape is popular for its classic looks and longevity, and Walnut’s sew-on leather bar wrap is a noteworthy option. The Wrap is ideal for riders looking for an 'Eroica' look, as an alternative to the more common wrap-around leather bar tape option, or for riders simply looking to give a nod towards classic cycle styling and componentry.

The sew-on style of bar tape does require you to spend as bit more time than usual applying the bar tape to your handlebars, but, as the bar tape is made from leather, it will last longer than most other types of bar tape, and so you won’t be needing to replace it a year or two down the line. Walnut have also put together some great guidance on fitting the bar tape which includes a video and picture installation guide. If you want to try out this delightful option on your bike, we would recommend putting aside a good couple of hours and getting comfortable with your favourite drink and maybe some tunes to keep you company during the installation process - and then you can feel like a super-smooth leather-working pro at the end of it!

No bar ends are included with the tape - Walnut leave it up to customers to choose what type of bar ends they would like to use with the tape. The PDW Bamboo Cork Bar Plugs are a great option which are very in keeping with Walnut's style, which beautifully combines leather and wood. Alternative options recommended by Walnut (including making your own bar ends out of bottle corks) are are explored in a blog written by walnut.
