Guitar Straps to make you a Better Human!

Sweet classic colours, all the way from Portugal.

Introducing the MM by Woven Guitar Strap – our collaborative attempt at eco-conscious guitar glory. This strap isn't like other straps. Crafted from upcycled materials sourced from Portugal's finest textile factories and artisan leather producers, these straps are a testament to sustainable style and conscious craft. Each strap is lovingly handmade by a family of Syrian refugees based in Braga, Portugal. Not only are you getting a durable, eco-friendly strap that's easy on the eyes, but you're also making a positive impact on the lives of those involved in its creation.

With 12 unique limited edition designs to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect match for your vibe and once these straps are gone, you'll own a very unique, never-to-be-made-again, guitar strap. Plus, the concept paper label isn't just any old label – it's plantable! Made from cotton waste and plant seeds, it's a little reminder that every small action counts towards a greener future.

And let's talk numbers, why not. By snagging one of these bad boys, you're not only scoring major style points, but you're also contributing to some impressive stats. We're talking over €55,000 to our social partners and a whopping 5.5 tons of upcycled fabrics and accessories from the Portuguese textile industry. That's some fairly hefty impact.

So, what are you waiting for? Join the movement, make a statement, and rock out with purpose. With MM by, it's not just about looking good – it's about doing good too. Let's make the world a better place eh?

A Lovely Bonus

This guitar strap comes adorned with an intricately engraved leather end that tells a tale of love and the unwavering resolve of women.

Hailing from the quaint village of Vila Verde, just a short distance from Braga in northern Portugal, is a fascinating textile artifact known as the "Lenço dos Namorados" (Sweetheart's Handkerchief).

This cherished textile serves as a potent symbol of love and has become emblematic of the Minho region. Once home to numerous embroidery workshops, young women employed in these establishments would gather leftover yarn and, lacking formal education, would stitch love letters onto handkerchiefs. Despite the inevitable spelling errors, these heartfelt missives conveyed the depths of their affection.

When a young woman fell for a suitor, she would carefully embroider her sentiments onto a handkerchief and send it to him. Should he reciprocate her feelings, he would proudly wear the handkerchief to Sunday mass, signalling their mutual affection.

This tradition speaks volumes about the power of determination and commitment, reflecting the indomitable spirit of the women of Minho who pursued their desires with unwavering resolve.
