First of all we want to introduce you to our Raw Material: Leather
Vegetable tanning is the most traditional and recognizable; the only one capable of imparting unmistakable properties to the leather, versatility of use and uniqueness of the product.
Magrabò adheres to the Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium in Tuscany that brings together 22 artisan tanneries of the Tuscan Leather District determined to protect their niche and high quality product and united by the same production philosophy closely linked to the territory.
The shoulder bags with Core finish are made using high quality cowhide with Vegetable Tanning in Certified Tuscany.
These leathers are tanned with the traditional vegetable method, a process based on the use of natural tannins from trees, on new technologies and on the slow passage of time.
The end result is of a very high quality and aesthetic level, as well as on-stage comfort that you have never experienced before.
These shoulder straps are extremely soft and comfortable, ensuring hours of performance for the musician without particular efforts and interesting chromatic combinations of the on stage look.
Embossed finishes are made of high quality genuine cowhide, tanned in Italy, which is processed with advanced finishing techniques or in bas-relief printing giving the leather a perfect aesthetic to combine with numerous types of guitars and basses.
The final result is of a very high qualitative and aesthetic level, accompanied by a surprising comfort on stage.
The leather with Aged finish is made of high quality genuine cowhide, tanned in Italy with particular finishes that give the Magrabò shoulder straps a very irregular aged or textured appearance, allowing effective and original combinations with guitars and basses of all kinds.
The Metallic series shoulder bags are made of high quality genuine cowhide, with a metallic surface in different colors.
The leather is tanned with the same process as Vegetable Tanning, followed by a metallic lamination at the end of the production.
The metallizing treatment is of the highest quality and tenacity.
These models are particularly suitable to combine with guitars such as, for example: Les Paul GoldTop and other famous models.
Available colors: Steel - Silver - Bronze - Gold
Stone Washed Finish
The aged finish of Stone Washed straps was formalized thinking about guitars of artisan lutists, vintage guitars, Custom shop, Custom Shop Relic e Heavy Relic series of the main manufacturers.
To the quality of the leather and the craftsmanship (common to all Magrabò products), we added up particular processes of washing and drying which use stone and rocks to the quality of leather and production, common for every product of Magrabò , giving the leather surface an amazing vintage aspect.
The shades obtained from this process are unique, they characterize each strap to be the only one, even among 100 pieces of the same line, just as it happens to hand made guitars, like Custom Shop, Master Built, Relic, ecc…which have unique colors, finishes, sound and maneuverability.
The principal characteristic of Stone Washed line is the washing of the straps with stone and rocks, which is applied to ended straps. This process makes possible the union of all the materials, which compose the strap, to be the distinct sign of ageing and run of time.
When the strap is dried, it is softened through a dry process in barrels, which gives straps more softeness and comfort. At the end of the work, the application of a protective cream, the manual polishing and the milling of the edges of each piece, give light and life to the Stone Washed straps making them ideal companions for rank guitars.
