Lu recommends

The Original Caramel Brown 3″ Strap is the one to choose for most custom projects!

The neutral shade allows our black engraving to POP and will match most instruments. This is the strap you see most often in our gallery.

Your custom artwork or logo on leather

Free-hand engraving means there’s no limit to your design options!

Yes, we can translate your custom artwork to leather, but this doesn’t mean it will look machine-printed. All burn method artwork retains the qualities of being carefully hand-crafted: You will see variations in line work and shading, and the details that will tell you this piece is one-of-a-kind.

Check out some of our work putting customers’ tattoos, logos, signatures, and artwork on leather.

Every design is hand-engraved without machinery. How's it done?

Our designs are meticulously engraved by hand with a hot pen. Since we don’t use lasers and computers to put your design on leather, every artwork is infused with the artist’s style. Please expect some variation in the linework and shading – these individualized touches make each custom strap a unique work of art!
