There are products and than there are products with a compelling story. There are camera straps. There are many thousands of different camera straps with a multitude of materials and hundreds of styles, designs, construction, form and function. The lowly camera strap has never gotten so much attention since the introduction of the guitar strap design in the 1970's! Today, everybody has an idea of what makes the perfect strap and everyday we get solicitations from another vendor with another strap line. Then along came Cecilia Gallery with both a compelling story and well designed, fashionable, functional camera straps. Nothing new or earthshaking in the basic design, but a fusion of sustainable materials and a cultural heritage that promotes a centuries old craft.

The compelling story

While touring the Peruvian highlands, the owner of Cecilia Gallery crossed paths with a woman selling handwoven alpaca wool belts. He decided to combine the belt with leather in order to make a camera strap. He showed the strap to friend and now business partner, who encouraged him to perfect the design and take the straps to market…

The heritage

Some models of the straps feature woven alpaca hair. The alpaca textiles are handwoven by weavers in the Peruvian highlands. The backstrap loom weaving techniques and traditional patterns are a heritage of Andean culture and thus Cecilia Gallery provides a means for these skills to provide income and a path to market for these Peruvian weavers.

Leather

Leather selected for the straps is full-grain Argentinean cowhide. The tanning process gives the leather its supple feel, deep color, and traditional aroma. Its full-grain structure provides strength and durability. The hides are finished in the USA with surface treatments that further protect the leather.
