Our camera straps are designed to give you optimum comfort and security while you take stunning photos. We source vintage chumpi, woven waist belts, from families in the region of Apurimac, Perú. These intricate belts are woven on the backstrap loom and take weeks to complete. Women of the Apurimac region are known to wrap up to three chumpi around their waists, giving extra support to their backs for daily work. Each strap is entirely unique and contains the human touch and emotion of the weaver in each thread. The leather part of the strap is crafted by Samuel in Cusco, Perú.
Your purchase supports our sustainable project pay Peruvian artisans fair wages for their work, helping to preserve artisanal heritage in the Peruvian Andes.
