Anglo - Argentinian husband & wife team creating unique leather accesories

My story began 7 years ago when I started making leather guitar straps for some of the most important and influential musicians in the rock music scene in my native Argentina. I’ve always had a passion for music, photography and design. The leather allowed me to combine them with cool results. My first attempts were gifts for my favourite musicians and when a few of them started to wear my straps on stage, things started to get exciting. Before long I was making them on request, designing handmade unique customised guitar straps.

Feedback was encouraging so I knew I was on to something. People would often tell me that whilst they loved the designs they didn’t play guitar. So it was a natural progression to start making leather belts (more people wear trousers than play guitars!!). Broadening my range allowed me to make turn my passion into a way of living.

Then my life changed dramatically! In the summer of 2010 I came to Europe to travel, met an English guy, fell in love, got married, moved to the south coast of England, started making the belts and straps again, he quit his job and together we started Backbeat Leather, the home of music inspired leather accessories. Phew!

We hope you enjoy looking through our store :)

    I left Argentina to travel around Europe with nothing but a MASSIVE bag full of my belts and guitar straps. Met a british guy, fell in love, got married and stuck in the UK! Now with him on board we created Backbeat Leather.
