SMALL BEGINNINGS

Kingsley’s first small leather products and accessories were for friends and family, but as time went on, and with a little artistic inspiration from the likes of Michelangelo and a growing interest in the concept of durable quality workwear, he became more intrigued with expanding his craft into something bigger. Having made further investments in traditional leather-working and saddlery tools, Kingsley finally created his first small capsule collections using traditional methods.

“I originally trained as a tailor. While I was working with high-quality denim, I became captivated with leather and leather-craft. I started making small items for myself and friends, word got around, and I started to get bespoke orders. After investing further in traditional leather-working and saddlery tools, I was able to create small capsule collections.”

NATURAL ELEMENTS

To this day, each Kingsley Walters product is hand-cut and stitched with his own beeswax-coated thread in his workshop in East London. No machinery is ever involved in the production and all the leather is naturally vegetable-dyed, traceable to source and purchased in England. When it comes to sourcing the raw materials, Kingsley spares no expense. His leather, for example, is from J. & F.J. Baker in Devon, which is Britain’s last remaining traditional oak bark tannery.

The Baker family have been tanning leather sourced from local farmers for well over 150 years. Oak bark tanning makes the hides extremely strong and hard-wearing and is a long and skilful process, the aim of which is to protect the natural fibres. With proper care, oak-tanned leather can last many decades; it will only become more valuable and unique the longer you have it.
