Each item is cut and constructed by hand, with minor variations in stitching and leather. Custom designs and wholesale pricing are available.
Due to a desire to avoid calculating dimensions & weights on everything, I provide free shipping in the U.S., with no shipping available outside of the U.S.
Grass-fed, gluten-free, sustainable, biodegradable leather products made in the high desert. Intentionally made leather goods designed to last as long as you do.
Welcome to Kestrel Leather. I started making leather products for the same reasons as most other businesses. Need. I wanted heavy use, durable good for myself and for my wife. That approach is the foundation of how I design and construct my products. I want it to last, to look good, be functional (sometimes too much), and last for a long time.
Modern, clean-line designs, using MOSTLY bovine, aka cow. I favor oil tanned leathers based on the durability and water resistance, keeping with my theme of function. However, I also carry a line of sustainable, harvested, exotic leathers. I use those for one-of-a-kind items. Keep your eyes open for those.
I have a fantastic new space, but the studio doesn’t have established “hours.” If you come by my super cool building and see a vehicle parked on the West side, stop by and see me. If you don’t see a vehicle, text or call me at (505) 728-5248. Instagram, Facebook, or smoke signals are alternate means. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even better, set up a time ahead of your arrival. I love to talk about my work and designs.
My designs are based on practical function, durability, and aesthetics. Products are hand cut and handmade, with minor differences from one to the next. For example, I was making the “cash can” wallets as a standard rectangle cutout until I realized that notching the corners would keep it from creasing over time.
Styles, textures, and colors of leather vary. Though I always have brown and black cow leather in stock, there are subtle color variations from one lot to the next. I also have rare and exotic leathers that I buy when I can. On that note, there are more options than I can include in a shop online. If you have a custom design in mind, contact me for a quote.
