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) native Hootenanny pattern. 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 & Ends are garment grade Espresso suede. 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.
