Guitar Straps

Guitar Strap of Real Cork with Pink Foil on Genuine Pink Leather


Shipping to United States: $3.90
  • Details
    This guitar strap is made from natural cork commercially bonded to genuine leather hides, which has limited sources and other makers using for guitar straps! This strap could be worn showing either the cork with pink highlights, or the solid pink leather!

    Unless otherwise requested, the strap is my standard size, 2 1/2" wide and adjusts about 47 to 58" with 1" increments. If you have a specific length and adjustment range, or pegs or strap locks, please note in the order. And I cut the straps myself from the hide, so I can usually make other widths or lengths, so please inquire before ordering as the price may vary, and I can confirm I have enough hide to create your custom order.

    The natural cork has dark pink (fuschia) foil backing to fill in natural voids & gaps for flashes of color, and paler pink cowhide contrasts in cross section and on the backside. And the strap can be used with the full grain leather side showing, too, making this a reversible strap. And it's very supple, resilient, and strong--and lighter weight compared to cowhides of the same thickness.

    Please note, this cork bonded to leather is not to be confused with "cork leather" that is used to describe cork laminated to fabric, which is often presented as a vegan option to genuine leather, but is a layer of cork that is permanently bonded to genuine leather. And it is very difficult to find, especially in size suitable for a single strap length--and given the cost of small earrings of this same cork & leather, the price for a full strap is a bargain...

    The overall thickness is about 0.078", or 5oz. The commercial bonding process is extremely durable, and only after extreme effort was I able to split the cork off the leather on a scrap piece to confirm the leather itself is 0.055", or 3.5oz, and the cork is about 0.023". or 1.5oz. The cork is supported on a very fine mesh and then laminated to the leather so it is very flexible and resilient, which is why cork fabric that is now widely used for bags and wallets.

    Overall this strap is very strong and stable (will not stretch) and the full grain leather is very soft and should be very comfortable for long wear, and yet very light weight.

    The main strap is hand cut to 2 1/2" wide and tapers slightly at either end, and is about 42" long, and eleven adjustment slots are cut about every 1", and the 1" wide adjustment strap loops through the chosen slot and is woven through the other slots to provide the desired length and fixes to the back pin on the guitar.

    I cut the adjustment strap to about 22", with about 18" to the peg hole, so the overall length can be adjusted from about 48" to 58" between the peg holes.

    But since I cut these myself, I can easily modify the length or spacing to get the fit that works for you. Or you can add more peg holes in this back strap for finer adjustment as you wear it in.

    The holes for the front peg is punched at 5/16", and rear tab is 3/8". Each end has a small slit that ends with a small hole for a "keyhole" effect to prevent tears and to make the strap easy to install & remove. The hole and can accommodate most pegs, but remains securely in place. If you have a specific peg size you need to fit, please let me know.

    I have laser etched my Acoustic Needle logo on the cork side of the adjustment strap, but added it on the back side at the front peg end, so nothing breaks up the appearance of the cork on the front.

    The design means the strap is only cork/leather, and there is no metal or plastic hardware that could annoy you while you're playing, or your knock into you instrument while it's being moved or stored.

    I can also provide coordinating leather "laces" if you prefer to tie the strap to the neck of the guitar, rather than using a front peg. There is no extra charge for these when you order the strap, but please note in the order you want it included.

    If you have any questions, please message me! I am adding some other cork colors, too, so please inquire if you want a different color combination.
