A beautiful thick, soft vintage Africa print cotton artisan handmade guitar strap that you won't find anywhere else! The front fabric is a luscious soft vintage cotton printed with rough hewn geometric imagery typical of African textiles. The colors are rich earth tones of brown, black, cream, and terracotta presented in various shapes including concentric circles, cross hatch lines, tiny squares, rectangles, and X's, as well as connected triangles and undulating thick lines running diagonally across the face of the guitar strap. The back lining of the guitar strap is lush black Duchess satin and the pin tabs are double thick hand punched and hand stitched top quality black Brazilian textured leather. This is truly an amazing and visually compelling guitar strap that you will be proud to put on your shoulder. 

This material was manufactured in 1989 by Guilford Mills, at one time one of the premier innovators of fabric composition and design. Guilford Mills was founded in 1946 and reached their industrial pinnacle in the mid 1980's. After laboring for decades to remain profitable, cheap imports took their toll and the company was acquired by Lear in 2012 and now produces high end automotive trims and fabrics. This material dates from their heydays as a producer of unique, substantial fashion fabrics. 

My guitar straps are amazingly comfortable. The 3 inch width allows for weight distribution over 50% more area than conventional guitar straps and even solid body bass players have commented on how comfortable my guitar straps are. Further, because there are 3 bottom layers of fabric between your shoulder and the polypropylene foundation, there is a soft cushion to help further distribute the weight of your guitar without holding the body heat that standard lambs wool shoulder pads retain, so your strap is soft, cool, and comfortable. No more aching neck or shoulder and no more pressure points.
