About

Who is Gayle Winde?

Life as an artist is an ever changing world of expression and experimentation with ideas and techniques. On a quest to find what was most meaningful and gratifying, I discovered the beauty of leather design. It seemed to resonate in a special way with its many gorgeous characteristics. The smell of the hides, the wonderful colors and textures, and its multitude of creative possibilities offer amazing opportunities for creative design.

Starting out with a small design studio years ago evolved into slightly larger work spaces. The culmination of years of custom work eventually led to owning a retail boutique in the heart of Seattle's Pike Place Market. Nine years were dedicated there 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 the decision was made to close the boutique and open a private design studio in West Seattle. It was here where I began to focus solely on leather design within the music industry. My wearable art design experience transitioned into my new line of artisan guitar & bass straps. The goal was to develop improved leather accessories for musicians. The industry standard for guitar straps was sorely lacking in comfort and creativity. My vision was to offer strap designs the actually met the needs of guitarists. Researching and inquiring of musicians themselves gave me the knowledge of what was needed and desired in a guitar strap. This led to experimentation with various prototypes to perfect fit and design. Spring of 03 I launched Gayle Winde Custom Guitar & Bass Straps.

I now reside in Nashville, TN and continue to work within the music industry. The world of internet sales has opened the door to design for guitarists worldwide. In looking back I'm thankful for my wonderful company of loyal customers ... you have truly been my inspiration! Looking ahead I aim for further creative opportunities within the wonderful world of leather!

The guitar and bass straps can be found in my Etsy shop, the Etsy.com/Pattern/GayleWinde website, and the main website gaylewinde.com. A full portfolio of strap designs can be found in the gaylewinde.com galleiries.
Lastly, I hope you'll be inspired to experience a Gayle Winde Custom Guitar Strap for yourself or someone special in your life :)

Warmest regards,

Gayle Winde
