About Us

Tea Horse offers one-of-a-kind guitar straps made from traditional textiles of the ethnic minorities of Southwest China. The company is the brainchild of long-time China expat and translator Joshua Dyer. The Tea Horse concept fuses his love for exquisite hand-crafted textiles with his passion for traditional folk music from around the world.

As a performing musician on the China folk circuit, Joshua understands the value of preserving musical and artistic heritage. The Tea Horse business model is a reflection of those values. Buying a Tea Horse strap supports the continuation of centuries-old artistic traditions by providing artisans a market for their highest-quality crafts.

Every Tea Horse guitar strap is a one-of-a-kind work of art, making them the perfect match for your treasured hand-crafted instruments. Beautiful and tasteful, these straps are guaranteed to draw approving nods wherever you pick: in your living room, at the local jam, or on stage!
