Does anyone know anyone who makes handmade, possibly leather, good quality, custom ukulele straps? I have a few ideas in my mind, however I want to find someone who specializes in making them. I know I could easily go to Etsy and find plenty, but I’d like to support a local HawaiIan craftsperson.
 
I have to say that ukulele straps are far less popular in Hawaii than on the mainland, even among local women players. If you look on the major Hawaii-based music store websites, you only see imported straps.

Interesting!!
 
I don't recall seeing any/much in leatherworks on the islands, and others are correct that tradition dictates that you don't use a strap... I know op already bought, but you might look through these small/local business directories:
