Ive been braiding leather for around 5 years. Pops and I had the idea that braiding bullwhips could get us some cash. Sadely it failed, but I was messing around with a hide today, and cut off 8 lengths of quarter inch strips of about 80 inches. And I started braiding, the ends gave me a bit of trouble, but I managed (the strap will have to have strap locks). I was doing some research on other braided straps, and found there were none like mine, and I believe the strap making could be a good way to get some cash. Is there anyone else that makes straps, knows someone who does, or can give me any advice on specs?
Thank you for your time,

Check this thread over at the Telecaster forum (TDPRI), links to many interesting strap makers there:

Strapsmiths...Wow.

I never thought that they also existed. So I can get a strap made of rare anaconda leather with diamonds studded on it...J/K.

Hope you get the one you need.

These guys make some great straps, but none braided. Perhaps you could ask them to market your line.

Thank yall for your time and imput. As of today I have braided 3 straps, so Im still working it out such things like how to make it adjustable, all the knots, what material that I will have to use, and the like. So Im way away from approaching any company, or even selling one for that matter.
