This guitar strap is hand carved and embossed into a 2.5 mm thick Italian vegetable tanned cowhide leather. The front design is repeated on the back.
It has then been antiqued and sealed. Hand stitched right around with a strong nylon cord, lined with pigskin leather and reinforced at the button holes with Kangaroo leather underneath.
I like the textured look of the pattern; it makes me think of carved wood.
