11 Vegan, Eco-Friendly, and Recycled Guitar Straps

Vegan Guitar StrapsThere’s never been a better selection of vegan guitar straps, as well as guitar straps made with eco-friendly and recycled materials. Traditionally, guitar straps have been made with leather, but designers are now experimenting with both old and new materials that are not only comfortable and durable, they represent your own unique style.

1. Couch Recycled Seatbelt Guitar Straps

Dan upcycles used seatbelts, vintage auto upholstery and vinyl, and other materials to create truly unique and vegan guitar straps. No matter your musical proclivities, you’ll be sure to find the perfect style to suite your needs.

Here’s a video of Dan giving a tour of Couch’s production headquarters in Long Beach, California:

Couch strives to use at least 25% recycled materials in their straps. Their guitar straps have vegan, non-leather ends, and they’re all handmade in Long Beach, California.
