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 beautiful Elk and Bison hide mandolin strap 

Is made by hand using mahogany colored BISON hide, one piece connecting one end at the bottom of the mandolin and a thinner section at the top. Works with both A and F style mandolins. The color usually appears darker than the photo.
