This unique fair-trade Amazon Mandolin or Banjo Strap was hand-made by a native artisan from the Ampiyacu region of the Peruvian Amazon. This strap is sturdy, comfortable and flexible. It is woven from one-inch wide chambira palm fiber attached to a quality brass-plated buckle so its length can be adjusted from 39 to 46 inches to fit the musician's style and height. Both ends are tightly sewn to a black leather tab that could be adapted to attach it to a mandolin or banjo. This is a perfect strap for musicians who want to show their appreciation and support for native culture and the environment. This multi-colored striped pattern was designed by Bora artisans to represent the "shushupe" pit viper snake that lives in forests throughout the Amazon region. Each strap comes with a tag listing the artisan's name and community and the plants they used to make it.
