Since 1984 I’ve earned
a modest living making Costumes and Props for film and television .I
am better known in the industry for my broad range of leatherworking
skills and my versatility. My work features in many feature films, commercials
and T.V flicks. Notably in " Mad Max Beyond Thunder Dome",
"Crocodile Dundee “, "Babe Pig In The City","
The Matrix "and “Superman Return “.
About my interest in music and guitars:
I have been an avid listener ever since I can remember. Having spent half my life in French speaking Europe (Switzerland) and the other half in an English speaking country (Australia) give or take few years traveling the world in between. I have been exposed and love plenty of different styles of music. Blues, Jazz, Rock, Flamenco and everything in between. Good music is good music regardless of borders, string instruments are everywhere and the Guitar and Bass are my favorites.
In 2000 I started collecting basket case acoustic guitars to turn into object d'art and kept been drawn to try and play them.
In 2001 I purchased my first playable accoustic guitar since a teenager and with the help of the Internet I started to seriously learn how to play. Since then my interest in all things guitars has quickly developed into a new exciting and fulfilling passion. Guitars are here to stay.
Somewhere in between 2000
Somewhere in between May
and September 2005.
In all those years my focus has always been to create beautiful, unique, usable and extremely strong wearables, sometimes ” works of Art “ with lots of attention paid to details and finishing. This I often thought was perhaps a little wasted in films but when in a close up shot, what looks real generally speaking It is real with all its details magnified a hundred fold. a lot of that work has been kept and is now spread around the world .
So here I am presenting to
you and the world at large, Chantal's guitar straps representing a lifetime
of creativity and amongst other things 22 years experience in show business
.I design and make those straps by my own hands. I will never copy anyone
else work so you will NEVER find SRV straps look alike here nor will
they EVER be turned out on a production line by the hundreds. I’ll
never be rich but I follow my passions and the love for my work and
to me it has always been of prime importance. My aim is to make the
best leather guitar straps I know how and perhaps “in the world”.
You’ll be the judge.
