guitar strap is hand carved first then hand painted with a metallic
gold and a dark red paint. It shines nicely and would look very effective
on stage. I'm afraid the picture doesn't really do it justice.
The leather I used on this one is 3 mm thick vegetable modeling hide
(cowhide) and its lined with a thick black cowhide suede. The buckle
is covered with 1mm thick Kangaroo leather and the whole lot is hand
stitched with a thick waxed thread as used in saddlery.
design for this one is inspired from looking at Japanese motifs.
I reckon this strap looks quite slick and would be well suited to
a more formal attire.
