|This guitar strap is hand
carved and embossed then hand painted. It is made out of 3. 5 mm cowhide
embossing Italian vegetable tanned leather.
It is lined with pig skin, reinforced on the under side of the button holes with Kangaroo leather and hand saddle stitched right around with a strong braided waxed nylon cord. The button holes , as always are thin down to a 3 mm thickness for a good fit and also in case you might want to fit some strap locks at some stage .
It took 2 days to carve and emboss, one day to paint and 1 day to assemble plus the original design time, a day to draw and transfer the design onto the leather.
