Welcome to Walker & Williams
As multi-generation leather crafters, we hope that Walker & Williams will be your source for the finest leather guitar straps anywhere. Since 1894, our families have been designing and manufacturing fine leather goods for customers all over the world.
From our start in the late 19th century in the horse collar business, we’ve gone on to make harnesses and saddles, steamer trunks, industrial belting, buggy whips, military leggings, bomber jackets, flying helmets and just about every thing that can be made from leather. We still do make some of those things, although the market for buggy whips is way down these days.
A few years back, one of our younger generation suggested we start making guitar straps. This was pretty easy for us to do, since we already have everything we needed, so we gave him a corner of the factory and a pile of leather and let him run with it. It turns out that making guitar straps is a lot more fun than cranking out soles for shoes, so it all worked out. The result is what you see here.
Throughout this site, you’ll find a variety of premium guitar, banjo, mandolin and ukulele straps in many, many styles. We currently are offering over 350 different designs, about 10 times what the next guys have. This could make it challenging to find exactly what you want on the site, so please settle in for a good browse through our range of straps. And if you have any questions about our products, feel free to email me personally EBW@walkerandwilliams.com or phone us at 805-698-9547.
