Mod Straps Review & giveaway

Like most blogger and moms I do not go anywhere without a camera. I have 2 different ones that I use. One that I use for every day that I will just throw in my purse and a Canon SLR that I use for photography. That is why I was so excited to get my Mod Strap and try it out.

A little about the owners....mod. is a mother and daughter owned business created by Jeannie Cheatham and Amber Clay. An avid photo enthusiast, Amber was searching for a new camera strap. All she found were low quality straps in limited basic styles and colors. She set out to create her own strap cover using her existing strap as the base. Choosing stylish fabrics in vibrant colors and textures, she began sewing on her grandmother’s old sewing machine with Jeannie’s help. The idea for a business was taking form.

Originally Jeannie and Amber planned to offer their camera strap covers to a local camera store, on a consignment basis. Soon they were contacted by an independent sales representative who had seen their products. He took their creations to other camera stores and found strong interest and enthusiasm.

Jeannie and Amber soon came to realize that the product photographers wanted was not simply a camera strap cover but a high quality, durable, and stylish camera strap. They began their search for a manufacturer. They were strong in their conviction that they wanted their product manufactured in the USA.

The mother-daughter team continues to design new straps and accessories for cameras. They have also expanded their product line by adding designer sleeves for laptops, tablets and e-readers as well as ID-phone cases. More product line extensions are in the works, all fashioned from a handpicked variety of fabrics, colors and textures. The response has been tremendous. mod. is now sold in stores all over the world and is also available for purchase on their website.
Throughout their journey their business has been and always will be grounded in their faith in God, family, and friends.

I choose to review one of their Premium camera straps that retail for $48.50. The one shown is Turquoise Flower.
Sensible, sophisticated, and savvy, you are a woman who demands high fashion with practicality… and who says you can’t have it all? mod.’s Premium Strap offers the ultimate in comfort, utility, and style.
