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 cradle strap

is in the 3 inch width, made from super soft Bison hide. This wider width increases the weight distribution for greater comfort on the shoulder. 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 “mastertone” and similar resonator banjos without multiple “shoes” bolted through the rim, it is designed to wrap completely around the heavy banjo pot for the greatest security. The provided Chicago nuts secure the strap joining points together on your left side, away from the banjo to prevent any scratching. Typical of cradle straps, It is fully adjustable but only when the strap is being attached.
