Leather guitar strap # 80
to Elaine in the UK

This guitar strap consists of a layer of 1.5 mm vegetable tanned leather on top with inlays of Fish and Cane Toad leather.
Cane Toads were introduced to Australia from Hawaii in June 1935 in an attempt to control the native Sugar
Cane Beetle. They have since then spread over a very large area of Northern Australia where they are a considered a threat to a lot of our native species.The hides are rather small but very distinctive with its knobbly texture.
The guitar strap is lined with pig skin leather and hand stitched throughout using a bone colored braided nylon cord.
The buckle is covered in kangaroo leather.

length 45" to 49" - width 2 3/4"
