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.
Available in black, dark brown and green from the Amazon Forest Store at: https://amazon-forest-store2.myshopify.com/products/fair-trade-hand-made-guitar-strap-anaconda-gs01?variant=8139898159204
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.
