About

Who is Gayle Winde?

Living life as artist is an ever changing world of expression and over the years there's been experimentation with numerous forms of art. On a quest to find what was most meaningful and gratifying to me I became involved with leather design. It seemed to resonate with me in a special way. I suppose it was a combination of the many characteristics of this beautiful medium. The smell of the hides, the wonderful colors and textures, and the multitude of creative possibilities, offer amazing opportunities to be creative. I think I completely fell in love with it.

Starting out with a small design studio, over time things evolved into slightly larger work spaces, finally ending up with a retail boutique in the heart of Seattle's Pike Place Market. It was here where I began to build a loyal customer base & explore the world of retail. Nine years were dedicated here to creating wearable art for locals, tourists, and business professionals. The boutique became a unique destination point for shoppers and was featured in Sunset Magazine and various Seattle Art publications.

In 03 I closed my boutique and opened a design studio in West Seattle, focusing solely on leather design within the music industry. The previous years of custom design work served me well and became the natural transition into my new line of artisan leather design. It was here where developing better leather products for musicians became a priority. There was such a tremendous need to improve the industry standard for guitar straps that this became my vision and journey. Researching and inquiring of musicians, I experimented with various prototypes perfecting fit and design. In the Spring of 03, I launched my exclusive ergonomic guitar strap design. It met the needs of guitarists by at last providing improved structure and comfort, beautiful style options and overall "great strap performance". This seemed to answer the need within the music community and marketplace. Gayle Winde Custom Guitar & Bass Straps was on its way :)

I now reside in Nashville, TN and continue to custom design for musicians worldwide. Working with the many musicians throughout my career has opened a new world of possibilities and created a wonderful company of loyal customers has been my inspiration :)

I hope you enjoy my Etsy shop and will be inspired to experience a Gayle Winde Custom Guitar Strap for yourself or order for someone special in your life :) To see a full portfolio of my work and read customer testimonials, please visit my website gaylewinde.com.
Warmest regards,
Gayle
