Unique and beautiful guitar strap [P-SC520161] - hand made in Japan from vintage silk kimono, leather and brass
Brand new Singing Crane handmade vintage silk kimono obi guitar strap
Primary obi colour: gold, black (front) / seashell (reverse)
This is our premium gold line guitar strap.
Our premium guitar straps are cut from high grade kimono obis – more intricately woven, more rare colours and higher craftsmanship. Each strap is Individually sewn with stunning Japanese gold silk thread or silver silk thread on hand-selected, carefully matched leathers for the strap ends.
Every Singing Crane strap is one-of-a-kind, one of three variations from the same Obi on the front, and this strap has a seashell colour reverse, with hand picked matching leathers and stitching.
Each has a unique, hand-stamped serial number. All are handmade in Kyoto from recycled vintage silk kimono obis and repurposed leather off-cuts.
These are really original and beautiful straps - super strong, light and durable. Silk is the strongest natural fabric. The kimono obi is the most expensive and gorgeous part of a Japanese woman's kimono outfit - the obi itself can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
This is a new item, but each obi has small variations and irregularities in the fabric from the previous lives as a much sought after fashion item. Please check the strap photos carefully.
