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.

Lakota Leathers

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 Mahogany banjo non-cradle strap

is in the popular 2 inch width, made from super soft Bison hide. The chocolate color is a dark brown that appears lighter or darker in different lighting conditions. This hide is about as soft as deerskin and beautiful in appearance. No padding is necessary with a Lakota strap. Made for use with traditional shoe and bracket banjos of the resonator or openback type, it is designed to attach directly to the tensioning hooks for greatest security, and will not scratch your banjo. The narrow leather straps at each end  loop around a hook on each side of the banjo. The strap doubles back onto itself where the provided Chicago nuts secure it together. It is fully adjustable but only when or before the strap is being attached.
