Like the Monochrom VW GTI Golf Guitar Strap, the Red to Black version is made of early 1980's upholstery fabric that was originally intended to cover the seats of 80's era VW's like GTI's, Rabbits and Golfs, this limited edition fabric has a distinct look to it. What's even more unique about this strap is that it is made from automotive cloth, unlike our killer automotive vinyl straps that we have been producing for over a decade. This stuff looks GREAT even though its been sitting in an old automotive upholstery shop for about 30 years! The repeating horizontal racing stripe pattern looks really rad, and we cut all these straps to have the same striped pattern, black to grey, lighter grey on the back. Long story short: Vintage cloth, super durable, cool as hell.
