Ethos Custom Brands is a group of leather work artisans who specialize in what they call the "Midwest meets Manhattan" design philosophy. Whatever you call it, their guitar straps, boots, belts, cuffs and other leather pieces are incredible examples of old world leather craftmanship.
Shown here are a selection of their unisex leather cuffs. They use different leather products and techniques like stitching and embossing to get the decorative effects. The most stunning of all has to be their Celtic inspired pieces.
They are also flexible with their designs as each can be used - with some modifications - to other pieces. So if you like a guitar strap but prefer to wear it as a cuff, they can make it happen.
The founder of Ethos Custom Brands is Chad Little who has been making custom boots for over 20 years. He started out hoping to make extra cash to fuel his passion for "cool guitars and fast cars". He also spent 10 years in the music business. But with an insatiable need to create, leather crafting became his primary focus. You can read more about his journey here.
