GREEN ANACONDA AMAZON GUITAR STRAP - HAND-MADE AND FAIR TRADE This unique fair-trade Amazon Guitar Strap was hand-made by Bora native artisan Monica Chichaco from the village of Brillo Nuevo from comfortable, sturdy and flexible chambira palm fiber. It has a high-quality brass-plated buckle so its length can be adjusted to fit the guitarist with any folk or electric guitar.

This is a great strap for musicians to show their appreciation and support for native culture and the environment. The Anaconda model is based on a traditional Bora pattern of this large snake that lives in the rivers and forest of the Amazon. Each strap comes with a tag listing the artisan's name and community and the plants they used to make it. Sales help create a sustainable livelihood for artisan families and support health, education and conservation in their communities.
