LEVY'S LEATHERS, CANADA
We’ve been building your straps for over 40 years, and from day one we have loved what we do. Family owned and operated, Levy’s was first opened by Dennis Levy in 1973. Dennis opened his business with a handful of leatherworking tools, a pocketful of change and a passion for building the best. Regardless of the product, whether it was a pencil case or key fob (which happened to be two of his first products) or a guitar strap and gig bag, building the best has always been his number one focus. As if it were part of our DNA, the same passion runs through the veins of his wife Cheryl, brother Harvey and children Danica and DJ who have all joined him over the years in creating the most beautiful and dependable guitar straps you’ve come to know and trust.
