Peruvian Loom Woven Guitar Strap Series

I have been working on a series of straps from some of my wonderful Peruvian fabric. While they are similar in some ways, they are sufficiently different from each other that I don't feel I can list these as multiples of the same strap. So, as I list them and show them to you, you will see the similarities but you will also see the differences and perhaps prefer one over the other. In any case, all of them are absolutely luscious in their thickness and in the boldness of their colors. Happy New Year to everyone!!

A Beautiful Embroidered Flamingo Handmade Guitar Strap on Coral Ultrasuede

Who can resist flamingos? They are elegant, beautiful, exotic, and positively enchanting. This artisan handmade guitar strap taps into our mesmerizing fascination with flamingos. The front fabric of the guitar strap is gorgeous coral ultrasuede embroidered with four classically posed flamingos in rich shimmering threads of fuchsia, pink, and black. Above the front flamingo are overlapping palm fronds embroidered in variegated threads of green, yellow, blue, and pink. The back lining of the guitar strap is lush pastel pink Duchess satin and the pin tabs are double thick hand punched and hand stitched top quality black Brazilian textured leather. This guitar strap is absolutely dazzling and is one you will be proud to put on your shoulder.  Beautiful Flamingo Handmade Guitar Strap

When a color feels peaceful

Just listed this new guitar strap on Reverb. The design is classic Native American but it's the colors I like so much. There is something very "peaceful end of day" about taupe, which is the dominant color in this strap. Anyway, I really like it. It has a quiet quality to it. Thanks for taking a look! Peaceful, kind of end-of-day handmade guitar strap

Guitar Straps With A Cool Back Story

Oftentimes, I make a guitar strap based solely on the fact that I like the fabric. I figure the right guitar will eventually turn up and my buyer will be able to see, better than I can, the possibilities. This is one such combination. You can't argue with perfection!
