Unique and beautiful guitar strap [Shibukami-um] - hand made in Japan from vintage silk kimono, leather and brass
Brand new Singing Crane handmade vintage silk kimono guitar strap
Primary colour: White (front) / Blue and red (reverse)
It has yellow snakeskin pattern, red and mastard leather panels with red 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 a umbrella 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.
