Absolutely gorgeous edge connectors that let your chosen materials shine through.  These high quality connectors are for 1" straps and have a nice shiny finish.  They attach with 3 screws and you should reinforce the edge of your bag with Peltex, Decovil I, or Deco Fuse to give the connectors something to grab into that will support weight.  

This is a set of 2 connectors, as seen on The Podium Bag in the photos, which is a pattern by ChrisWDesigns.  You can also place them on the sides of totes and purses to use with an adjustable strap.  They look extraordinary in sets of four on the top of any bag!  For savings, buy them in sets of 4 here.
