Classic Leather Fobs began in a boat shed at Burnham Overy on the North Norfolk coast in 2006 and is proud to be providing a service generally unavailable elsewhere to the owners of classic vehicles needing original & restored keyrings to use with their vehicles .
Original vintage keyrings for classic vehicles and also original keyfob badges with restored leather keyfobs can be seen and ordered from the website shop.
An ever increasing part of the work is now repairing keyrings for customers .
Keyrings are shipped all over the world .
This is a one-man business with just one craftsman who works on his own in a workshop now located in Old Bolingbroke – a small village on the edge of 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.
The only leather work carried on here now is the repair and restoration of 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 leather repair work is carried out entirely by hand using traditional methods and materials and the quality of the workmanship is 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.
Apart from the original vintage unrestored keyrings which are on offer in the website shop, keyrings are produced for general use in a variety of interesting leathers and restored automotive keyrings are offered with original vintage badges which are between 30 and 60 years old which have been remounted onto new leather keyfobs so that the keyring can continue it’s travels for many years ahead .
