This unique fair-trade Amazon Guitar Strap was hand-made by a native artisan from the Ampiyacu region of the Peruvian Amazon. This strap is sturdy, comfortable and flexible. It is woven from two-inch wide chambira palm fiber attached to a quality brass-plated buckle so its length can be adjusted from 45 to 55 inches to fit the guitarist’s style and height. Both ends are tightly sewn to a black leather tab that snugly fits over a standard folk or electric guitar strap button. This is a perfect strap for musicians who want to show their appreciation and support for native culture and the environment. This colorful pattern was designed by Bora artisans to represent the “shushupe” or bushmaster – a large pit viper that lives in forests throughout the Amazon region. Each strap comes with a tag listing the artisan’s name and community and the plants they used to make it.
Made by Brillo Nuevo artisans in the Peruvian Amazon
