We collaborated on this strap design with Alex Bleeker, the bass player of the band Real Estate. As Alex said in an interview for our magazine, "Straps can be pretty generic, so to have something that is nice and feels like it has character is great."
The pattern is based on a rug that Alex saw on a friend's couch. He saw it laying there and thought, "That's kinda my vibe."
You might know Alex from Real Estate and his band Alex Bleeker and The Freaks. We have been fans since seeing Real Estate in the early days at Glasslands and couldn't be happier to design a strap for such a great dude. It turns out that it's also a natural complement to our Indian Guitar Strap in Martin Courtney.
The strap was designed by the collaboration of minds between Alex and Nashville artist Matthew Sharer. It is silkscreened on 100% blue cotton canvas and finished with quality leather end tabs and vintage-style hardware.

Exchanges & Returns
Did you change your mind about a purchase? Don't worry, you can exchange it or get a refund within 30 days of purchase for any reason. Because of the artisan nature of the textiles we use, some of our patterns might never be produced again, so if you'd like to exchange that item, you'll have to pick from what's available at the time of your exchange. Just contact us and let us know what you'd like to do. We'll follow up and send you a return shipping label.
Because of prohibitive shipping costs we cannot offer exchanges for international orders, but we'd be happy to refund your order if you're not happy with it and would like to return it.
