Luxury Designer Camera Straps 

About Us

Abie Straps is a business created by professional wedding and portrait photographer Ellen LeRoy, who lives and works on the outer banks of North Carolina in the small town of Emerald Isle.  She was one of the first to create camera straps that reflect the style and personality of the photographer and her company continues to produce the highest quality straps that exist in that niche.  Ellen believes your straps should help brand you rather than your camera manufacturer.  She also aims to have straps that are comfortable, durable, and practical as well as beautiful.


While Ellen continues to support her family through her photography career, Abie Straps has become her personal mission project, and ALL the profits from the business are donated to help cure treatable blindness in third world countries through Mercy Ships and Helen Keller International.



Abie Straps has been selling camera straps online since 2010.  All of our straps are made in New York City in a highly specialized leather factory that works with clients such as Calvin Klein, Coach, and other high-end designers.  Our materials and manufacturing decisions are based on quality rather than price.  We welcome design ideas and inspiration from anyone!
