About KrakenWhip

Sales 2,838
On Etsy since 2010

The world needs more pockets and less fashion waste

Hiya! Welcome to Krakenwhip, home of handcrafted, upcycled leather goods since 2010.

You may have seen us at Rennaisance Festivals, steampunk events like Clockwork Alchemy, or at more *eh-hem* adult happenings in San Francisco and the Bay Area. Whether you’re meeting us for the first time here or joining us after an event, please know that while the website will never have that delicious leather smell we’re still the same folks you see in our booth, so if you have a question, don’t hesitate to reach out.

As always, everything you see here is handmade from real upcycled leather by a team of skilled artisans and craftsfolk who love making shiny (and durable!) things for shiny (and durable!) people. Each piece is one of a kind, built to last a lifetime, and represents hours and hours of thoughtful design. If you don’t see the piece of your dreams here- let us know what you have in mind- we do custom orders all the time.

Shop members

  • Kristin Gallup

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    Self-taught designer and crafter who wears all the hats—photographer, editor, travel coordinator, maker, trainer, accountant—and in my “spare” time I lift weights and try to get buff.

  • Molly Conway

    Communications Manager, Color Goblin, Maker

    She’s the reason there are half empty teacups all over the studio, but she’ll make you feel like a superhero in leather so you’ll probably forgive her.

  • Sasha from Russia

    Master Na Vse Ruki

    Our resident historian, botanist, geographist, teacher, chef, and Jack-of-all-Trades. Routinely makes us question the weirdness of the English language.
