Classic Leather Fobs Limited came into being over 10 years ago and now sends original vintage automotive keyrings and original vintage automotive enamel badges which have been remounted onto new leather keyfobs all over the world.
Classic Leather Fobs also makes a range of keyrings for classic makes of British car like Austin Healey & Triumph using new vitreous enamel badges .
This is a micro-business with just one craftsman who works on his own in a leather workshop in a small village in the Lincolnshire Wolds on the East Coast of England. There will have been a saddlery here in this village for over a thousand years making important leather goods for working men and working horses.
Now all that is made here are leather keyrings for the classic vehicles which replaced those horses and have now been replaced themselves by modern high tech vehicles which are no longer used with leather keyrings.
The keyrings produced are of the very highest quality and are greatly appreciated by those who remember the standards of workmanship which were commonplace all those years ago before techniques of mass production took over the world.
Most of the keyrings in the website shop have original vintage badges which are between 30 and 60 years old which have been repaired – they have been remounted onto new leather keyfobs so that they can continue to be used .
In a few cases the keyrings have new vitreous enamel badges which are made here in England – just as they always were.
In both cases the leather keyfob which the badge is attached to is individually handmade from the best saddlery hide and stitched by hand with linen thread.
