Just ask Dennis Levy, who in 1973, decided to accept a set of leather-working tools instead of cash as payment for an odd job.
To his surprise, Dennis developed a love of leather-working. Inspired by the musical passion of his brother, lifelong guitarist Harvey Levy, he began creating guitar straps as his brother took to the road to build a network of vendors. Within a few years, Dennis and his wife Cheryl had invested their life savings and formed Levy’s Leathers Ltd. And so a seemingly small decision led to bigger ones, sparking an enduring legacy.
Of course, it takes more than a few opportune moments to create one of the world’s most respected names in quality guitar straps.
It takes a steadfast dedication to craftsmanship, an earnest desire to empower all types of musicians, and a belief in helping others embrace their craft in their own way. All coming together to create a truly exceptional product that today, can be found on the shoulders of everyone from garage musicians to world famous artists.
From your grandpa’s old acoustic to your first guitar lessons. From rocking out in your parents’ garage to headlining your first gig–Levy’s is more than a strap. It’s a right of passage. An invitation to play on the shoulders of giants, and with them. An empowering rally cry to define your sound, and live your legacy.
