This is a beautiful unique item, very nicely made. I was so surprised to receive the lyrics and cord to The Shins song as the strap was a gift for my son in law who is a friend and fan of the Shins! He really loved both the strap and the music. Thank you!

Amazing! I love it!!! The guitar strap even came already gift wrapped and with some sheet music and a very nice note. The box it was shipped in was even cool she made it out of a recycled cereal box. Katie the designer and owner even tracked the order and kept me informed knowing it was a rush to get it in time for Christmas. Im extremely happy and impressed! Thank You!!! :)

The 411:
I originally created therine because I came up empty handed when I went to find a guitar strap that matched my style. The options were either plain (no personality), or had overly masculine motifs like flames, skulls, spikes...etc. No thanks! I'm a designer by day, so my mind naturally started filling with ideas for making my own, and it hasn't stopped since.

My straps are designed for a more refined customer- someone who likes vintage, color, glam, rock, and a little bit of rockabilly. Someone who has this kind of style and wants their guitar strap to match it. Men and Women.


The Details:
I create all my straps by layering strips of ribbon or taping onto an existing base strap, and then finish with a collection of found pieces or remnants at the shoulder. The result is a detailed and one-of-a-kind guitar strap that doesn't look like any others out there.

You can see all of the straps I've ever created on my Flickr at:

And you can see the inspirations behind my straps on my blog at: www.therineinspiration.blogspot.com

*I've also recently started selling vintage accessories. This happened solely out of my own love for them, and I think they pair well with my straps.


The Point:
Etsy & therine have become valuable creative outlets for me, in ways that my day job can't. The personal aspect of my work here is really refreshing and grounding. I love that something I design & sew in my Seattle studio apartment can ship straight to you- no outside opinions or company meetings involved! That's the way the world should work, don't you think?

Payment
Now accepting both PayPal and Etsy's direct checkout! Please pay for your item within 3 days.

Orders will be prepared and shipped upon receipt and clearance of payment. I have found that with Paypal this sometimes takes 2-3 days after you place your order.

*Of course you and I both have to follow all the Etsy rules and regulations as well, so take a look at those too.
Shipping
I ship via USPS first class/regular mail, in order to get the best rate (which saves you money!), and I add insurance because my straps cannot be exactly recreated due to the 'found pieces' nature of some of the elements.

If you live outside of the USA please send me a message with your location and I will calculate the shipping for you!

Please let me know any other specific shipping preferences you may have.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unsatisfied with your item, please send me a message/email and I'll be happy to work with you to find a solution.
Additional policies and FAQs
All my pieces are made in a smoke-free environment. I do share my apartment with a single black cat (Miss Sixty, meow). I keep my Etsy items out of her reach, but if you have severe allergies, take note.

I can occasionally do a custom order, which I generally charge around $50-$55 for, though the price will depend on the details of the job. Please send me a message if you are interested.
