Here’s a bit about Souldier :

Souldier is an independent design manufacturer, fusing aesthetic textile creation with functionality. Their unique merchandise is inspired by musicians and created for the connoisseur looking to express their inner spirit.

After years of knitting, sewing, crafting, creating, imagining, and inventing, they decided to put the projects to rest and share our hobbies with friends. Souldiers first guitar straps were created as ambitious presents for guitarists in local Chicago band, The Lesser Scene, who performed initial quality control tests. Violin and viola case straps were then customized for chamber group, Quartet Parapluie, who command a crowd at Danny’s bar in Wicker Park on lucky Friday nights. Their enthusiasm and encouragement drove us to take the products to the public. Souldiers first ‘official’ showing at Intonation Fest, 2006 featured our guitar straps with an added line of belts, handbags, messenger bags, and apparel. As their first custom orders rolled in, so did members from the weekends headlining band, The Streets, and their support and praise was enough to realize that people appreciated the selection, beauty, and craftsmanship. Since our first shows, our product line has expanded to include bass guitar straps, banjo straps, camera straps, sax straps, additional apparel items.

At Souldier, all of our products are handmade in Chicago. We do not outsource to other agents and pride ourselves on the craftsmanship of our product. Our straps and hand cut leather ends carry a lifetime warranty that we are proud to standby.

Souldier is proud to offer:
Custom Guitar Straps, Custom Bass Straps, Custom Banjo Straps, Custom Mandolin Straps, Custom Ukulele Straps, Custom Camera Straps, Custom Dog Collars, Custom Belts, Hootenanny Straps, Vintage Guitar Straps, and tons more.
