Siouxian Motif Guitar Strap- Custom Hand Embroidered - Named Oglala Mandala: This strap is my humble interpretation of some Native American symbols which I have made into a string of mandalas. I hand embroider the designs onto a piece of black fabric which I then machine applique to a standard 2” wide Ernie Ball polypropylene strap. I used red, yellow, black and white because these colors appear most often in their symbols. A stylized phoenix, spider, iguana, and sun are among the symbols used, and if these are not all particularly Sioux, I beg artistic freedom. It may be initialed at your request.

The inspiration came the summer of 1966 when I lived on the Oglala Sioux, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, in South Dakota (Long story). Being one of the outstanding experiences of my life, I gained an appreciation for their culture including the many symbols found in circles. Many Asian cultures also use such “mandalas” for meditation.

The last 2 photos show other straps I have previously sold and I would be happy to re make and personalise for you. ALLOW 2-3 DAYS FOR MAKING THIS TO YOUR WISHES. INDICATE ANY INITIALS YOU WANT (2 ONLY)
If Shipping appears high, it is because it is Priority Post (USA only) as a form of insurance.
