Finally brought to life! This project has been such a long time coming, taking us several years to assemble all the perfect parts. A decade on the road as Ben Harper’s guitar tech helped us understand how to shape the perfect strap, also providing the inspiration to design it. We’re super proud & grateful to offer these to you! Here’s the run down…
The vintage Jacquard is ultra-rare original ‘Perforated Card’ Loom woven 2-inch wide (characterized by extra wide outer edge-work) Navajo pattern with rare Oval center line. Deadstock mint condition woven 50 years ago!
BOLT woven label with raised bolt & border. 13 point bolt an exact match to original Steal Your Face art.
Hardware is all full-cast antique relicked brass…buckle & both rectangle rings. Backing is garment grade Saddle suede. Ends are vintage Tobacco leather. We modernized the inset tab design to reinforce the front side, offering extra stability (for the stage) using vintage 12-ounce Raw Indigo Denim. The interior lining is just the right density/texture & thickness to reinforce structure & balance overall strap feel, allowing for just the right blend between playing comfort & structural integrity. Overall length expands up to 54+ inches, extra long to accommodate all playing styles.
Fully handcrafted in Los Angeles, 1 at a time, scrutinizing every single detail…until everything is just exactly perfect. And built super strong to last. These straps truly represent the craft at it’s finest. A ton of Love, care & persistence went into this entire process, with original nostalgia dripping from the seams. We’re proud to put these in your hands & hope you enjoy playing music with them as much as we enjoy making them.
