Looks like aluminum foil, but this very soft lambskin has a special finish for a very unique look, but the function of the guitar strap is accomplished with the smooth black elk hide to which the lambskin is applied.
The main strap is hand cut to 2 1/2" wide and tapers to about a 1 1/2" radius for the front peg end, and a more gentle taper on the other end with the slots. The Al foil leather is glued and edge stitched to a 1/8" thick black leather, with the last 12" or so of the smooth top grain exposed on the slot end for to contrast the 1" wide adjustment strap of the same black leather so it can weave through the adjustment slots easily, but it is still firm, and will not stretch.
(Please note the black leather may vary slightly from as shown in the photo due to stock availability and timing to update photos).
The overall length of this strap as shown is adjustable from 36" to 56". The main strap is about 39" long, and the 10 slots are spaced from about 28" to 38" from the front peg hole. The adjustment strap is 18" from slot to peg hole when installed.
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.
The holes for the pegs are punched at 5/16" in the front, and 3/8" in the back, and a small slit ends with a small hole at the top of the slit to prevent tears & the "keyhole" effect makes the strap easier to install & remove, and can accommodate most pegs. The firm leather and stitching around the front peg hole keeps strap to remain secured once it's fitted fully in place.
This design means the strap is only 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 leather "laces" if you prefer to tie the strap to the neck of the guitar, rather than using a front peg. And if you have a specific peg size you need to fit, please let me know. There is no extra charge for enlarging the peg holes or for the ties when you order the strap, but please note in the order if you want any of those changes. And I can make longer or shorter version as suits your fit and playing style.
