The art of leather working is part of our heritage, and we are proud to handcraft each piece here in the USA with the finest American tanned harness leathers. As a final touch, our 3rd generation craftsmen, Merle, Raymond, and Joseph emboss each product with our company emblem, the "Double K", and their own initials as a seal of our approval. There is no assembly line. Each piece is an individual work of art signed by the artist. When you put your hands on a Kingfisher product, we hope you can see the passion we take in being the craftsmen of timeless luxury.
A Note On Our Name
Growing up I spent many a weekend romping the limestone banks of the Flint river and its tributary creeks in Southwest Georgia, the dotted ponds of Middle Georgia, and the mountain lakes in the Northeast section of the state. In the mornings when the mist is still rising on the water you will be seldom deprived of the crisp call of a Belted Kingfisher as he surveys his territory. A more handsome and regal a bird would be difficult to find, but what always amazed me is their sharp eye and precise dive. Rarely does a Kingfisher miss his submersed query. When I began my leather business I soon realized that the Kingfisher represents the very traits of precision, skill, elegance, and sportsmanship that I wanted my business to be known for. Today, each Kingfisher product bears a small symbol embossed into the leather which we call the Double K. The two Ks represent my last name Kolbie and the business' name Kingfisher. It is my personal mark of approval and a handshake with our customers attesting to my commitment to the traits aforementioned. We are proud to say that you will always find our signature where an artisan's should be, in the front right bottom corner. ~ Luke G. Kolbie
