The Indian Strap Is Here

Announcing the Indian Strap by Original Fuzz

Today we're super excited to announce the launch of our latest guitar strap. It's called The Indian Strap because it features decorative textiles from India, a country known for some of the most beautiful fabrics in the world.

Some of the patterns, like the Mikal Cronin and Tina Weymouth, feature hand-stamped fabrics. To make those fabrics the artisans cut out a design on a wood block and print onto the fabric, almost like a screen print. Other fabrics, like the Herringbone or the Dean Ween Ikat, are made on hand-operated looms. Still others, like the Joni Mitchell and the Tom Verlaine come in wild, bright colors that you can only find in Indian fabrics. All of them are sourced responsibly.

Some of these patterns are very limited and will never return, so be sure to place your order now if there's a pattern you really like. Here's what you need to know about this sweet new Fuzz strap:

  • Artisan textiles sourced responsibly from India
  • Assembled in the USA
  • Vintage-style hardware and end tabs
  • Full-grain Horween leather
