Classic Leather Fobs came into being a few years ago as a result of Richard’s attempts to find a top quality keyring for his own classic car.
He remembered good quality keyrings being available years ago with lovely vitreous enamel badges mounted onto good quality leather keyfobs. None of these seemed to be available any more.
So – being a craftsman who had always worked with natural materials – he set about making his own keyring.
Others who saw the result also wanted one – and a business came into being which now sends keyrings to customers all over the globe.
Richard 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 keyrings.
The keyrings produced are of the very highest quality and are greatly appreciated by those who remember the standards of workmanship which prevailed many years ago before techniques of mass production took over the world.
The vitreous enamel badges are made here in England – just as they always were. The leather keyfob which the badge is attached to is individually hand made from the best saddlery hide and stitched by hand with linen thread.
