hand stitched, made-to-order leathercraft - luxury lifestyle
I principally use vegetable tanned bovine leather. This tanning method has been in use for millennia and marks the origin of leather itself. This process is not toxic to the environment like other, more common, modern tanning methods.
What is veg tan? : Vegetable-tanned leather is tanned using tannins and other ingredients found in different vegetable matter, such as tree bark prepared in bark mills, wood, leaves, fruits, and roots.

The Hand-stitched Estelle Handbag is a staple in any women's wardrobe. Simple, yet chic, this leather piece is incredibly versatile – an essential.
I needed something functional, beautiful and able to carry years of memories. I’m not going to invest again. I approached KMAK creations with this brief and Kevin Kriek, the founder and all-around-go-to-guy, was happy to oblige. After picture collages, multiple sketches and even a cardboard mock-up the Fine Giacomo was born. I loved that every single inch had been crafted by hand. The wide strap provides the comfort and security every pedestrian needs. It is the perfect size and protective cover for my Zenbook, which has survived many a rainy trip to work. The divider includes a zip-able pocket to hide my loose ends. I particularly love the interior yellow stitched accent, it is an unexpected treat for anyone opening this sleek brief for the first time. After six months of field testing, I’m still in love. It is the perfect compliment for the young professional. In fact, my roommate was so jealous the Rustic Giacomo was designed. The siblings have been travelling happily ever after.
Everyone is ecstatic with their pieces. The shapes and colours are magnificent. My daughter is even reluctant to use it in case she damages it!
I was finally able to satisfy my dream of owning a red bag. You work very well with colours.
Thank you Kevin!
