D’Addario Unveils Sustainable “Eco-Comfort” Guitar Straps
D’Addario has launched a new line of straps called the Eco-Comfort line, which features models made from sustainable materials. The company says that 90 percent of each strap is made from recycled materials.
“Strap fabric comes from Repreve, providing high-quality, recycled fibers that are certified, traceable, and made with 100% recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste,” D’Addario writes. “Straps are colored using E. Dye, offering an environmentally sustainable process for dyeing fabrics. Using the solution dyed polyester process, e.dye® requires no water to dye synthetics. By adding the color before the polymers are extruded, the color is inside the yarn, resulting in a superior color performance.” They add that the leather is eco-leather that has been grinded down and bound to form new leather sheets for the ends of the straps.
The entire lineup includes ten straps with three basic colors (black, red, and grey) as well as seven unique patterns. They have a width of two inches and an adjustable length of 34 inches to 59 inches.
The D’Addario Eco-Comfort Straps are available now with prices of $20.99 for the basic colors and $24.99 for the jacquard designs.
