After years of knitting, sewing, crafting and creating, Souldier President, Jennifer Tabor decided to put the projects to rest and share her hobbies with friends. The first guitar straps were created as presents to guitarists in the local Chicago music scene. Soon, Souldier sales went worldwide and the product line quickly expanded beyond instrument straps to include belts, handbags, messenger bags and apparel.
All Souldier products are made of recycled seatbelts, antique fabrics and salvaged leather. Handmade in Chicago, Souldier does not outsource to other agents and prides themselves on the craftsmanship of the product. The hand cut leather ends of all the straps carry a lifetime warranty which they proudly stand by. Their ability to fuse aesthetic textiles with functionality provides unique merchandise inspired by artists and created for the connoisseur looking to express their inner spirit.
In addition to the exclusive line at Best Buy Musical Instrument Stores, Souldier will still continue to provide its inventory of over 600 patterns to independent retailers and distributors.
