guitar strap is made out 3.5 mm thick Vegetable tanned cowhide at the
shoulder and lined with a 1.5 mm thick garment Italian calf skin suede.
The button hole ends are thinner aprox 2.5mm thick vegetable tanned
cowhide, lined and reinforced with 1mm thick Kangaroo leather.
The inlays are a cream colored Egyptian Cobra. This is some of the last
of the Cobra skins I have here, I obtained those many years ago from
an exotic leather handbag manufacturer. They are irreplaceable as I
have never seen Snakeskin’s like those sold locally here in Australia.
My current suppliers keeps very gaudy colours mostly and the tanning
is obviously not what it use to be, they feel like paper , I won't buy
The motifs are hand carved and embossed and hand painted .
As usual buckle is covered in Kangaroo leather and the all lot is hand
stitched with a saddlery grade waxed thread.
ps .Some people might
remember this strap as having been padded earlier.
With the leather, design and construction I used it really does not
need padding (overkill) so I decided to take it off before I let it
Really feels much better now. I'm
happy with it.
