Conservation Through Craftsmanship
Kingfisher Leatherworks, a sporting company at heart, was founded on a love of the land, water, and wildlife. In a world where “green” means recyclable, renewable, or compostable, we operate on a core principle that guides us to a different approach. For us, the way forward is to craft products of superior quality and functionality which endure for generations. In this way, our products never enter into a cycle of waste. We call this central principal “Conservation Through Craftsmanship”. To achieve this, Kingfisher products are meticulously designed and crafted by skilled American artisans with the finest U.S. tanned, full-grain leathers. As a finishing touch, each product is embossed with the craftsman’s personal initials and the Kingfisher emblem. The results are timeless accessories that will display the patina of a life well lived, and are made to serve not only you, but also your heirs to come.
Make your purchase personal with our numerous custom options. We offer complementary copper tag engraving for bags and belts, a variety of fine pewter pins, and the ability to emboss 1 to 1,000+ products with your corporate or event logo.
Adding a foil embossed monogram or initials (three letters of the same size) is a great way to add a personal touch to your purchase. Please note that custom orders require up to one working week to process due to the labor intensive processes of embossing. Please contact us if you need a rush personalization so that we can ensure timely delivery.
G.G. Harris Fine Pewter
The gifts we remember and cherish the most are personal, functional, and unique. It is for this reason that we have partnered with wildlife artist George Harris to offer our customers a wide range of wildlife, dog breeds, and sports mascots. These hand-cast pewter pins add a personal and tasteful touch to an heirloom gift. Visit our Bottle Tote page to see our current stock, and contact us if you don't see exactly what you are looking for. Odds are with 600 varieties to choose from, we can find the perfect pin for you.
Gold foil is a method of heat embossing that impresses the leather surface with a stamp and leaves the foil in the impression. This method results in high contrast and crisp details. Regular heat embossing will create a deep, darkened impression like our logo and craftsman marks. Both methods use the same stamp which makes it easy to switch if you decide one looks better with your logo. Great for corporate gifts and events, our embossing services can be applied to any of our products.
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
