HEAVY LEATHER NYC Heavy Leather NYC is a brand built on a love of vintage rock’n’roll, Americana, motorcycles, psychedelia, muscle cars, tight jeans, big hair and all things your parents don’t approve of. The business started off as a custom shop where owner, Rachael Becker created one of a kind guitar straps for rock stars. The goods now include a full line of guitar straps; both leather and faux leather, camera straps, motorcycle gloves and much more. Custom work has crossed over into television props, motorcycle seats + car interiors, gun holsters, runway accessories, art installations and clothing.
