If you're a guitarist looking to add some style and personality to your instrument, a unique guitar strap is the perfect accessory. Whether you're performing on stage or jamming in the studio, these 7 one-of-a-kind eye-catching guitar straps will make a statement and elevate your playing experience. Find your new favourite strap today and play in style!


Leather, Colour, Design

Bespoke designs with practicality. These leather guitar straps feature a soft shearling or suede lining, plectrum holders and tassels. The tooling designs are a music signature (bass or treble clef) design with guitar outline and a music note.


The straps are colourful, having two layers of leather to expand the play on colours both in the dyeing and stitching colour choices. Dyeing and stitching is all done by hand.


The buckles used are solid, cast brass, either in brass or nickel plated.


Custom embossing and tooling

Custom embossing and tooling is a great way to make a statement with your guitar strap. You can choose your own design or have your name or band logo tooled onto the strap for a personalized touch. This adds a unique and eye-catching detail to your strap, making it stand out on stage or in the studio. Whether you want a bold and intricate design or a simple and elegant logo, custom embossing and tooling allows you to create a strap that reflects your style and personality.


Show off your individuality.

You choose! I can make your guitar strap, your way. Working with me, we can make your bespoke guitar strap.


Choose your colour scheme and all components of the guitar strap, from lining to hardware (buckles).
