Crafting a legacy one strap at a time
The moments that have the greatest impact on our lives often don’t seem that important at the time.
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.
The Levy’s Leathers factory in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, one of Canada’s maritime provinces, is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with a rugged shoreline featuring numerous bays and estuaries. The scenic contrast of rolling green fields and high sea cliffs, as well as Nova Scotia’s abundant natural resources and dense forests, make this a popular destination for big-game hunting and waterfowl and upland game birds. Soon, Levy’s reputation for exceptional quality leather guitar straps gave birth to a new line of fine hand-crafted rifle and shotgun slings.
Our team at Levy’s Leathers is comprised of musicians, outdoor enthusiasts, and sportsmen who design, handcraft, and use the products proudly offered to the public. We understand the importance quality, durability and dependability. Whether you’re on an adventure of a lifetime, or a weekend ramble through the woods, Levy’s rifle and shotgun slings will never let you down.
Levy’s is excited to join forces with Gator Co., headed by CEO Crystal Morris. One of the world’s largest producers of exceptional audio, visual and instrument cases, Gator Co. is a company equally committed to the use of high-quality materials, innovative designs and timeless styles.
All of our slings are crafted at the Levy’s Leathers factory in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada, 20 minutes from the northern coast and Northumberland Strait, and surrounded by beautiful, dense forest.
