K&H Leatherworks began in 2017 as an after hours hobby that soon became a passion for me. In 2019 I was fortunate enough to be able to turn that passion into a full-time career making leather goods of all shapes and sizes.
The K&H stands for Koda & Hobbes - my dog and cat. Sounds silly, probably is, but my pets have always been my best buddies and when I was looking for something to name my brand after, it felt natural to pick something so close to me.
Everything I make currently is hand stitched/saddle stitched. This method involves the threading of two needles on one long thread which is then stitched in a figure-eight like shape through the material. It is an incredibly strong stitch and alongside the proper treatment of your leather, should result in an item that lasts a very long time.
I am just one person - I make all the items you see on this website and on my social media, with the exception of some awesome collaboration items. I photograph everything, respond to all emails and messages, take care of invoices, package and mail out orders, etc. etc. As such - if you don't hear from me right away please don't feel insulted! I typically get back to people within 24 hours.
I am a strong believer in using ones privilege to make a difference, and in using ones voice to speak for those that are often unheard. As a result 5% of the total value of every sale will be donated to the First Nations Development Institute, an organization that improves economic conditions for Native Americans through direct financial grants, technical assistance & training, and advocacy & policy.
Thanks for being here - and thank you for your support
