Jack Cooper and James Hoare, our favorite London duo known as Ultimate Painting, are back at it again with their newest album, Dusk, out now via Trouble in Mind Records. Following up on their critically-acclaimed sophomore album, Dusk is everything we love about this band. The album is euphoric, jangly, psychedelic pop. It's lyrically impressive and loaded with naturally-addictive piano melodies and guitar hooks.
In celebration of Dusk, we teamed up with our UK pals to bring you the first guitar strap in our Artist Series. We brought the band into the design process to help us develop this strap. It's the first of many collaborations with bands we love.
This handwoven strap, inspired by the album's artwork, features magenta, black, and white cotton in a traditional woven pattern. The textile is woven in North Carolina and sewn at our shop in Nashville. Accompanied by our classic soft-cotton backing, vintage-style hardware and durable leather, this strap is a work of art. 2" wide / adjusts up to 65" long
