Making our straps locally from cruelty-free products was of the utmost importance to all of us at Strapdetroit. Having been in the Pilates community both as clients and instructors, we knew that our hand and foot straps had to perform well, feel comfortable and easily attach/detach from the equipment.
It is for these reasons, we have manufactured our Pilates straps from heavy-duty nylon webbing and padded them for an extra comfortable feel for both hands and feet. We lined the inside of our single and double loop straps with a soft, suede-like material, being sure that no animal products were involved in their construction. Sewn to the end of the strap is a heavy-duty D ring for easy attachment to various Pilates apparatus. For the single loop straps, we have added a second D ring for quick adjustments from hand to foot loops.
Strapdetroit straps are made by an actual person, on a sewing machine and working from the suburbs of Detroit. Each strap is carefully measured and cut to exact specifications and reinforced with an "X" construction for improved durability and safety. All of our straps are machine or hand washable and can be set out to dry for best results.
This is what we mean when we say "Made in Detroit!"
