Carry your camera or bag in style with a one-of-a-kind, beautifully crafted strap that provides dignified employment opportunities for female artisans in Guatemala. Camera straps are made from upcycled, vintage, embroidered Guatemalan huipils and genuine leather.
Each strap is unique, and no two are the same! The Gemini Strap features a multi-colored Aztec pattern that is perfectly boho, with a striped backing that features tangerine, teal, and purple stripes. However the Gemini's crowning character comes from her two little lamas near the neck of the strap. The twins (although not identical) are a great conversation piece for the children's photographer who wants to have a great conversation piece to win over young subjects.
These authentic, hand made straps carry the story and traditions of the weaver in every stitch. Distinctly different from factory-made camera straps, the variations and imperfections provide character and charm.
Our straps are made by female run co-op groups in Maya villages in Guatemala - famous for intricate textiles and hand-embroidery. Your purchase supports the indigenous women who make the straps to receive pay above a living wage and steady employment.
