Keep your keys on a ring that is easy to find and also identifies you with this beautiful handmade leather key fob that you can attach to your belt loop or on a ring of your handbag, briefcase, or even your backpack. Handmade from the finest natural full-grain vegetable-tanned steerhide from one of only a handful of remaining U.S. tanneries that has been family owned and operated since the 1800's and carefully hand-stamped with a 3-D emblem/image for a deep and noticeable impression. Every step of the process is completed entirely by hand to ensure that only finest craftsmanship is achieved and that the end result is a fine leather item that you will enjoy using every day and cherish for decades to come.

* 100% handmade
* Full-grain, vegetable-tanned steerhide: the strongest and finest leather that exists and the only leather that can be customized with artwork, colors, and more
* Hand-cut, stamped, dyed, finished, and assembled; no machines of any kind are used in the creation process
* High-end designer hardware that has been specially selected for a truly unique look while also emphasizing durability
* Guaranteed to provide decades of use and to develop an even richer color over those years (this is a characteristic unique to this type of leather only)

Total length, without keys: 6.25", width: 1.25".

Each key fob of this style starts with a strap of leather that is approximately 10.5" long and 1.25" wide; I then taper each end of the strap down to the proper width to easily accommodate the swivel snap ring and key ring. The next step of the process is dampen the leather (another unique feature of this type of leather that can not be done with any other type of leather on the market) so that the desired image/emblem can be stamped deep into the leather to create a bold design (other styles can include intricately hand-carved and tooled designs that kick the overall look up a few notches). Once the leather has completely dried from the artistic step of the process it is time to be colored; this is accomplished with the use of the best and most used dyes/stains and finishes from another U.S. based and family owned and operated business that has been going since the 1800's (noticing a theme here yet?; everything is from U.S. family owned businesses that have been doing this for over 100 years so they obviously know what they are doing and they are sought after by us, the Professional Leather Worker). After the coloring/finishing process is done the outer edges of the leather are carefully beveled down and then burnished to close off the fibers from wear and create a beautiful finished appearance; this is all done entirely by hand using hand-tools that have been specially designed for this purpose. Now that the leather has been finished it is time to add some conditioner and sealer; for this I use my own blend of waxes and oils (all 100% natural and Organic) so that your leather item(s) will maintain their beauty, luster, suppleness, and also protect against exposure to the elements (the waxes also help give a bit of moisture resistance; full water proof cannot be achieved though with real leather regardless of what some sellers may claim). The final step of the process is to install the hardware; this achieved through one of two methods: riveted with solid brass hardware or stainless steel hardware (both selected for their resistance to tarnish/rust) or, hand-stitched using the Saddle Stitch method (this creates a stitch that DOES NOT come apart in the event of a stitch wearing through; unlike what happens to everything else we own that has been sewn on a machine). The materials, supplies, hardware, and techniques that are used to create these fine leather items are what results in the only leather goods that can truly stand the test of time and daily use and are the only leather items that actually get stronger, better, and more beautiful with time and use; you can't get that from any other commercially made like items and I can guarantee that too.

I welcome custom and/or personalized orders and will work with you on providing you with what you are looking for as long as it does not violate the intellectual property rights of another person or company. If you would like to discuss a custom order please contact me through the Etsy Conversations process and we can get to work on your ideas.
In the event that specific sizing information is required on an item, this information will be detailed in the item's listing information and must be followed as outlined to ensure a proper fit is achieved. Failure to follow specified instructions will void any and all guarantees and rights to return the item(s).
Leather is very easy to maintain and care for and you will be provided with written information in your order that will address this topic. Please follow the provided information as detailed; failure to do so could result in potential item failure and will automatically negate any implied or written guarantee or promise and will also disqualify the item(s) for return/replacement consideration.
I use only the finest and highest rated natural vegetable-tanned cowhide leathers, pigskins, and exotic skins that are each carefully selected for their proven results of durability and natural character. These materials may cost more but they do so for a reason; if you want something cheap, this isn't where you will find it.
Sorry, but no, I do not. The cost of shipping an item outside the United States is so high that it just isn't cost effective for the consumer in today's marketplace. Couple that with the fact there are many fine craftsmen around the world right now it is only appropriate that you support your local/regional craftsmen so that their businesses can flourish as well.

    Richard always comes through, and this custom small order is no different! Sent him a rough sketch of what i wanted, and left the rest to him! Quality is guaranteed, and price is very reasonable. Will continue to buy from this shop.

    Exactly what I was looking for in a wallet: veg tan leather in a simple, sturdy design (the stitching is some of the most stout I've seen, which is a huge plus) at a reasonable cost. You probably won't find a higher quality leather wallet at any price, and at this price, it simply can't be beat. The leather has been formed perfectly and didn't have a 'break-in' period like most other leather wallets I've had. The leather is going to age well, I'm looking forward to using this for years! Stop looking and buy your leather goods here. Everytime I pull it out to pay, I get compliments on it.
