This Strap a beautiful reminder wrapped up in an amazing visual. The outer design is an exaggerated thermal image of a region between Chile and Bolivia taken by NASA. While the image is absolutely stunning, it's still just a mix of what's essentially dirt and ice. When I thought of it like that, one of my all time favorite songs came to mind. Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt is beautiful; I've always loved the line 'And you could have it all, my empire of dirt'. We wanted to make this Strap as a reminder of what's important in life. When everything else is stripped away, the only things remaining are what we stood for and the lives we impacted. We can't take anything with us in the end, but the impact we make will eventually become our legacy. My hope is that this Strap will remind you every day to do something remarkable that makes a positive impact in your community.

Your New Favorite Wristband, now more than ever.

There are so many awesome things that Imperials bring to the table, the most requested of which is different sizes! Since Imperials don't stretch, they'll all come in Small, Medium and Large. The best thing about them is that even if they fit a bit too loose, the clasps are easy to remove so you can trim it down for the perfect fit if needed. 

All Imperials come printed on both sides - Artwork on the front & a positive message on the back. They're then laser cut with a serial number and finished off with our premium magnetic aglets to ensure it won't fall off during everyday wear. Since we believe the experience is everything, each Imperial is packed in a beautiful, hand made collector's case that's unique to the band it holds.

The clasp is a little loose, but not so much that I can’t deal with it. I’d hate to send it back, I love it so much and it fits me perfect! Thanks soooo much

First order

I had been eyeing several straps for a while but hadn't really made the move to buy any. Then I came across this imperial and couldn't help myself. Being a Johnny Cash and NIN fan, this was begging to become mine. I wore it the same day I received it and got so many compliments. I absolutely love it

One of my favorites!

This is one of those imperials that you can pair with pretty much any strap. The colors are gorgeous and it’s well done to the point where it matches almost any color or design. I choose to wear this imperial with half of my collection and the meaning behind it resonated with me to begin with! It’s definitely a must-have

My Empire if Dirt

I love this imperial!! I love the message and the colors are beautiful and vivid! I purchased a large because I wanted to make it an ankle bracelet. It was a little tight, so I took out the screws and extended it a bit and it fits perfect now.



This is one of my dailies, I really love it, the colours are so vibrant and it always catches everyone's eyes!
