Announcement    Unique Camera Straps for a unique you.

Most of us carry a camera strap because we need to. We need the extra rest to keep from having fatigue set in as we carry it with us for work or travel, fun or to document something important to us. What if it wasn't just about needing it? What if you could have a camera strap that wasn't just strong enough that you could depend on it, but it also felt incredibly comfortable AND stylish?

Welcome to Bluebird Chic! Each camera strap I make features top of the line commercial grade materials, quality fabrics from eco-conscious fabric companies that support independent artists, and hardware meant to keep your camera gear safe. I handcraft each one in my studio space in our home. I absolutely love that having the many fabric choices gives me the opportunity to express my personal style and personality when I carry my camera.

I also list excess fabric inventory in my other etsy shop - http://www.etsy.com/shop/bluebirdchicsupplies

Post #2 of 2: Then I realized I have a skillset that meets a very serious current need. I will be listing masks in two different styles in the shop this week. heart️ Stay safe, everyone! You should begin to see them in shop Monday!
Post #1 of 2: Quietly retooling my workspace in light of the new recommendations. I thought long and hard before doing this - because I in no way wanted to seem to profit from a difficult situation.
Shipping several of these beautiful straps out this week. In the midst of the world being filled with fear, please continue to see and support local artists and makers. blue_heart We all need the beauty and care that they put into the world - especially now.

handcrafted scarf camera straps that are strong and stylish

I want you to fall in love with your camera strap - not just as a necessity, but as something that makes you feel happy, stylish, comfortable, and secure. It started with just wanting to feel the same myself - and after exploring the options out there, I never quite found the right fit for me. I wanted something stylish, comfortable, AND dependable. I didn't want to sacrifice durability for comfort and style.

So, I got to work. Researching, learning, and putting the skills I already had with sewing and pattern design to use. Along the journey, I've learned about leather working, supplier sourcing, fabric manufacturers, and the best ways to grow and market my business. Years later, this is the result - so now you can love your camera strap, too!

All of our camera straps are handcrafted in our home studio space by me. Bolts of fabric stacked high, cut, pressed, stitched and sewn, leather cut and glued and stitched. I love every part of the process and take pride in creating a product just for you that you'll love and depend on.

A little bit about me and my family: We live in the South Florida metropolitan area just north of the city of Miami. I homeschool our boys using online courses, and my husband is an electrical engineer in the telecommunications field. He helps keep me from being too serious all the time. And when we're not working, we're usually hanging together grilling - maybe a favorite like fish tacos - and sipping a cocktail. We love basketball, running, reading, and the arts in all forms. It's hard to believe we've been together for 17 years already!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

You can request custom fabric designs and colors for your order! I love collaborating with customers to choose a print you'll love. However, changing the length of the scarf portion of the strap will be limited to certain styles.

Sizing details

Scarf length: 36"
Leather and strap length: 12" on each side
Total length from end to end: 60"

Care instructions

I recommend spot cleaning and hand washing the scarf portion only. The leather doesn't do well in the wash. The dye may bleed and the leather will wear, even though the edges are sealed.

Wholesale availability

Yes! We're available on Etsy Wholesale in collections or individually.
