Unique and beautiful guitar strap [Shikon-wh] - hand made in Japan from vintage silk kimono, leather and brass
Brand new Singing Crane handmade vintage silk kimono guitar strap
Primary colour: Purple (front) / White, Silver, Pink (reverse)
It has duck shell blue, black and silver leather panels with white highlight stitching.
Every Singing Crane strap is one-of-a-kind, one of three variations from the same Obi on the front, and this strap has white with silver and light pink design on the 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.
