|This guitar strap is made
out of 4 layers of leather. The top layer is 2.5 mm thick vegetable tanned
leather which has been embossed, hand cut for the inlays and airbrushed
using 2 different colors to match John’s blue guitar.
The inlays are emu leg leather; the different patterns on the skin have been carefully chosen to highlight the ovals. The larger ovals with their larger scales remind me of some crustacean fossils. This is then backed with 1 mm vegetable tanned leather and hand stitched around the inlays with a strong thick nylon cord.
Lastly the guitar strap is lined with garment grade black calf skin leather and hand stitched right around. The button holes are reinforced with Kangaroo leather and the adjustment is by way of 2 hooks which are in turn covered with a protective flap of leather.
