The Kingsley Walters brand was founded in 2015. Whilst studying tailoring and learning the traditional methods of working with leather, I quickly became captivated with leather craftsmanship and the versatility and longevity of leather as a material.

What initially began as a hobby - making small items for myself and friends - soon turned into a business, as I began to receive bespoke orders by word of mouth. Making further investment in traditional saddlery tools, I have been able to create small capsule collections, as well as lead workshops on leather craftmanship.

As a craftsman, I make practical and durable pieces by hand, utilising traditional methods. Each product is hand-cut and stitched with my own beeswax coated thread. All the leather used is sourced locally - traceable to source and purchased here in London.

I put a lot of work into the creation process, yet the story of your product is only starting once it has been bought by or gifted to you: the finish of the product will develop through use, wear and the passage of time, creating a truly unique piece that can last a lifetime.
