Default victoria footmans loops

I read a post or an article about having correct Victoria assist straps made but can't find that information now. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Art may be referring to the assist straps that hang on the door jamb for the rear passengers to hold when exiting. The original woven pattern differs from those available now from vendors. Iím not aware of anyone making matching straps now.

Try a marine supply store like West Marine. They have a number of sizes in stainless steel.

I did find the article I was referring to. It was by Arlyn Bieber in the Jan 2016 Victoria Bustle. Sorry for the confusion.

Hand "Assist straps" ? I thought they were called 'Ankle straps".
