Each Lakota Leathers’ instrument strap
is assembled on the Pine Ridge Lakota Sioux Indian reservation in South Dakota, USA. Pine Ridge has the undesirable distinction of being the poorest county in the entire United States. The purchase of any Lakota Leathers strap not only gives you the ultimate quality, but helps provide income for people on the reservation. Truly a ‘cottage’ industry, Lakota Leathers straps are assembled in living rooms and on kitchen tables of the people who make these wonderful straps.
uses only native leathers which have been used by the Lakota people for millennia. Bison (American buffalo) and Elk are the leathers of choice. These leathers are extremely supple and provide for unsurpassed comfort no matter what instrument you play. As strong as they are, it is surprising how supple and flexible this leather is. It can easily roll up and store in the guitar case compartment or under the headstock in the case.
This beautiful Elk and Bison hide mandolin strap
is created using a hand woven Herringbone weave using both Chocolate and Tobacco colored Elk hides. This makes a unique and strong strap that’s equally soft and supple to touch as it is beautiful. The lower end strap end is of Bufalo, and the upper end is of the thinner Elk hide to fit the mandolin. It will easily roll up and store in the case.
