Leather guitar strap # 163
to Simon in Tasmania

This guitar strap uses techniques seen in cowboy boots but hand stitched instead of machine stitched. It is made of 4 layers of leather. The top is 1 mm thick vegetable tanned cowhide; this layer is hand cut then hand stitched through the second and third layer. Second layer is sea snake leather in a Turquoise colour and the third layer consists of a suede cowhide. Those three layers are then backed with pig skin and hand (saddle stitched) right around with a strong saddlery grade Nylon braided waxed cord.

The red inlays are thinned down Kangaroo leather.

The front design is mirrored on the back.

length 44"- 50"- width 2 3/4"
