The Luxe Artisan straps feature 2 layers of soft, yet durable leathers. The top leather is a beautiful 'pull up' style leather - denoting the lighter toned colors beneath the surface of the leather that 'pull up' and highlight the beauty of the leather when the strap is worn. The bottom layer is a soft and comfortable leather that is 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.
