How was this leather styled?

#1
Hello!
I really hope you can help me..
I’m doing some beach jewelry for myself and i’ve found this bracelet online and i just love how the knots and the leather in general looks so roughed up! I can’t figure out how it’s made this way though.
The knots seem so interwoven and the leather looks so strong!
How can you create this effect?
