Exquisite in its delicacy and detail, this custom handmade guitar strap is beautiful imported India sari trim anchored with hand stitching to black Dupioni silk. The trim consists of ornate paisley images comprised of thousands of tiny gold sequins that catch and reflect the light along with fuchsia and turquoise blue embroidery to create the most dazzling and elegant effects against the black background. The back lining of the guitar strap is shimmering turquoise blue Dupioni silk and the leather tabs are premium quality black suede leather.
This trim, with its intense colors and emphasis on sparkle and flash, is an unusual blend of the Zari and Zardosi embroidery embellishment technique that developed in Persia and made its way India. Literally, Zardosi means "sewing with gold" and Zardosi style incorporates only metallic materials in its imagery. Zari technique is similarly intricate but incorporates a range of colors in its imagery. This trim style consolidates both techniques, the result of which is a finely detailed and striking one of a kind guitar strap that you will be proud to wear.
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 lamb's wool shoulder pads retain, so your strap is soft, cool, and comfortable. No more aching neck or shoulder and no more pressure points.
