Levy’s Production and Distribution
Levy’s guitar straps have been category leaders in the musical instruments industry for decades, known for high quality and fashionable designs. The Levy’s standard of quality is the benchmark of the industry, and the reputation for which the Levy’s brand is known. Maintaining this reputation requires using the highest quality of materials and the highest quality of workmanship.
Every Levy’s product starts with only the highest quality materials. Over its four decades of manufacturing, Levy’s has used many different natural and synthetic materials for its guitar straps, but its passion has always been leather. Levy’s sources a wide variety of the highest quality top-grain veg-tan, chrome-tan, and suede leathers from tanneries around the world.
Because leather is a natural material with much variation in the shape and size of the hides, cutting is a challenging operation to do effectively and efficiently. Levy’s employs several different cutting technologies, each one used for a specific application.
Levy’s offers the broadest variety of guitar straps on the market, annually introducing more new products than any other manufacturer in the category. Graphics are applied with printing, embossing, appliqué, and/or embroidery to leathers, cottons, or synthetics, rendering an extensive variety of fashion statements.
Trained sewing machine operators skilfully bring the various pieces of a guitar strap together with needle and thread (and a little bit of love).
Cleaning & Inspection
At every stage of production, the components that are to become guitar straps are inspected for quality. When the straps are fully assembled, they are cleaned of loose threads and given a final inspection.
Inventory & Distribution
Most of Levy’s nearly 4000 guitar strap items are available for immediate delivery. Each item has its own location in the expansive distribution centre (DC). Thousands of pieces are moved into and shipped out of the DC every day.
