About this Product

The legendary Dragon and Phoenix play out their eternal balance on this intricately detailed hand painted guitar strap. The art features prominently on this guitar strap. The adjustment loops on the front and back allow for a completely custom fit and feel. The Dragon and Phoenix have been painted in pearlescent and metallic specialty leather paints to bring all the details to life. It's hard to capture everything at once with the camera, but with the contrasting color there is a lot of "Wow" factor here.

This guitar strap would be an amazingly thoughtful gift for a guitar or bass player, particularly those who enjoy the symbolism or look of the dragon and phoenix. The thick leather and width make it suitable for all types of guitars, from a light acoustic to a heavier electric guitar or bass.  It feels good on the shoulder and looks incredible.

Meet the Maker

I have always had an interest in handcrafts and art since I was a young boy. My father is an artist & former art teacher, so from early on I learned to respect and appreciate arts & crafts and the time and love that goes into the creative process.

Following my passion, I pursued a degree in Fine Arts. Early positions in graphic design cascaded into a career in the game industry.

After stepping away from the industry I moved to refocus on more creative pursuits and get back to working with my hands.

Being a long-time game enthusiast and not being satisfied with all the mass-produced game card cases, I decided to make one for myself. From there I branched out into doing other special projects for my family. My pieces were receiving a lot of positive feedback which gave me the inspiration to start making pieces for others who might enjoy and appreciate them too.

Although the market has changed quite a bit over the last several years with mass produced items masquerading as handmade, I am proud to continue crafting hand made goods at home in my studio for the love and enjoyment of the creative process.

My interests in world religions, spirituality, philosophy, ancient symbology & lore, mythology across all cultures permeate throughout my work and art pieces.

It feels fantastic to use my hands to create objects of lasting beauty and longevity.

The pieces made in my studio are crafted - created with passion. They are true craftworks.

How it’s Made

This Guitar Strap was hand cut from a thick and rugged full grain vegetable tanned leather hide. 

The pieces were precision cut and the Dragon and Phoenix design was permanently etched into the leather.  

The center Yin Yang was blocked out to remain in natural tan for eye catching contrast. 

The large Dragon and Phoenix were both painstakingly painted with metallic and pearlescent paints in white and shades of lustrous gold.

The leather was specially hand dyed to enhance the natural beauty of the leather with a unique distressed finish, so it has a great vintage look.

Several top coats were applied to add a subtle satin finish that will both enhance the beauty and longevity of your strap. 

The segments were all bonded and riveted to ensure lasting strength. 

Like the best songs, this guitar strap will just get better with time.

What is Vegetable Tanned Leather?

Vegetable tanning is an organic process to preserve the leather. It uses natural tannins from plant sources, making it more environmentally friendly. It’s a slow process which takes weeks to months to complete. Vegetable-tanned leather has some rigidity to it, which helps the product to retain its shape and integrity. Vegetable-tanned leather will soften and develop a rich patina over time, meaning your item will develop a unique and appealing appearance as it ages, only getting better with time. By contrast, chrome-tanned leather is quickly chemically and more inexpensively tanned. It may present toxins to the environment and manufacturing employees. "Vegan", faux, or PU leather is petroleum-based polyurethane/vinyl.

This is a very well-crafted, high quality tarot card case. With all its Egyptian imagery, it's a custom match for the Thoth deck and fits the cards very well. I couldn't be any happier with this item.
