The Rustic Artisan straps feature 2 layers of soft, yet durable leathers. The top leather is a classically rustic, distressed style leather that looks great and worn in right out of the box. The bottom layer is a soft and comfortable leather that is buttery smooth to the touch. All the edges are rolled - so there are now raw edges on your shoulder or neckline. This provides a smooth and comfortable edge that feels great on your neck and shoulder for even the heaviest of guitars.
