Proof-of-Concept Brown Guitar Strap Ends

Shown here is the 3rd generation brown guitar strap end that utilizes red stitching, rather then black stitching, to prove out using thread other then black for the stitching. These ends also use a new brown material to see how reliably it can be sewn as brown fabric has been a major problem.

Only one pair of these ends exist at this time and not for sale. But the next time brown material is needed, it is likely this is what will be used.

As always, these strap ends are completely vegan . . . . no leather was used. The ends are nylon and polyester with brass hardware

Vegan Guitar Straps and Shoulder Bag Straps

Looking for an all-vegan guitar strap or shoulder bag strap? That is all we make.

The strap is a very comfortable polyester weave with a CDB Straps design printed on using the sublimation technique. The fittings are brass or brass-plated for a attractive quality appearance. When purchasing a strap, you get to pick the strap ends. We also offer a custom strap that you can have your name added to

Shown below are just a few choices of our straps. To see the entire collection, go to our website

Poster 11x17


The strap ends, both guitar ends and shoulder ends, look like leather, feel like leather but they aren’t. They are a faux leather fabric which allows for a look to be achieved that even leather can’t at a comparable price. The faux leather shell has a nylon base to give it strength that not even leather can match

Or, if you make your own straps, the strap ends can be purchased separately.
