|All El Dorado guitar straps are handcrafted in the traditional methods of fine saddle making. Only the highest grade veg-tanned saddle leather is utilized to assure strength, beauty and durability. With age and use the leather quickly "breaks-in" and becomes more supple, just like a top quality saddle or a fine pair of cowboy boots.
El Dorado's straps are meticulously hand-tooled in traditional Western motifs by leather artisans with decades of experience. Each is an individual and unique work of craftsmanship.
Hand-tooled leather models are available in choice of "Acorn & Oak Leaf" or "Flower & Leaf" tooling patterns.
The designs date back to late 19th century Western leatherwork, used extensively in decoration of saddles, saddlebags, belts and holsters.
Shoulder pads are tooled in traditional "basket weave" pattern, backed with genuine sheepskin shearling. Buckle, loop, & tip are crafted in solid nickel-silver, hand-engraved, finished in sterling.
