The mark of the hand. We live in a time enamored with cheap quantity, forgetting the discernment and value of true quality. It’s an honor to be able to don and enjoy your handwoven guitar strap, from right here in the east mountains of New Mexico. Wearing it is like receiving a gentle hug while playing guitar. And the colors and pattern you chose present a beautiful and joyful utitlity.
Thank you for the perfect classical guitar strap.

Your wonderful woven guitar strap arrived safely  on Tuesday. I’m delighted with it. Looks fantastic on my acoustic guitar, and is comfortable in a way that leather straps can never be. Also it arrived sooner than I expected. Everything is perfect!               – Graeme, Canberra, Australia

Annie is a true artist! Her straps are everything you need them to be – strong, comfortable, durable – and they are beautiful! I’ve got several myself and I’ve bought three straps to give as gifts, custom straps with all the right school colors and designs. You can’t own just one!   –Mark Hannum

I’ve been using Annie’s straps for over a decade. The draw for me is the hand made designs that are unique and original. I am still using straps from 10 years ago without failure. Lost track of Annie for a few years and had to make due with the 3 or 4 that I had. Now that I have found her again I am ordering a couple of new straps hopefully in the same colors too. – Joe

Annie at the Loom - Taken by LaverneOf the many things that impress me about Annie MacHale and her woven creations, the two most outstanding are her natural gift for combining colors and pattern in hundreds of unique ways and the vast array of sources from which she draws inspiration for her one-of-a-kind textiles.

Timothy's GuitarI came to her wanting a guitar strap that matched my new guitar, and she seemed enthusiastic about the project. She sent me pictures of the threads she would use to make the strap and let me choose, sent me pictures of the finished product, and quickly shipped it once I gave her the go-ahead. The result: a beautiful, one-of-a-kind guitar strap. It’s comfortable, durable, and very clean. I think every guitarist should try this out, or buy one of Annie’s previously made straps which are unique as well.

MateaThis strap seems to be able to hold extremely heavy weights. It’s sturdy and strong, but is soft to the touch and silky. The colors are very well matched.

Weaver straps are the best! They not only look great but are also very comfortable. I’ll only use Weaver straps now!
