Welcome to my leatherworking journey...

Hello! I am Kingsley, the craftsman behind Kingsley Leather.

Like so many others I had an office-bound day job and I also dabble in graphic design and, as you can imagine, I spend a lot of my time in front of a computer screen. I wanted a 'manly' craft that would take me away from a computer but also creatively challenge me.

What inspired me to take up leatherworking in particular was that I have always admired leather goods and how they gain character as they age, think old leather suitcases and satchels etc. However the cheap mass-produced imports never seemed to last as long as I expected - I was changing my wallet every 6 months for example! I decided that I could kill 2 birds with 1 stone: create the quality leather goods that I desired for myself and pursue a new non-computer based hobby.

After a couple of months of practicing, my work began to get noticed by friends and family and this led to my first set of 'commissions'. After creating a leather satchel for my girlfriend, a wallet for my brother, and plenty of belts, I soon decided to begin accepting orders from the wider (and paying!) public. I now run Kingsley Leather full-time and have never looked back - follow me as my journey continues.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Thank you for choosing me! I am a 100% genuine handmade leather item.

Here's how you can care for me:
Please avoid getting me wet. If I do get wet, keep me away from light coloured clothing and allow me to dry naturally. Clean me with a dry cloth or soft brush. From time to time you may wish to treat me to some good quality leather conditioner.

For a specific question on leather care please contact Kingsley
