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.
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.
Apart from the original vintage unrestored keyrings which are on offer in the website shop almost all of the keyrings have 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 to be used .
In a very few cases the keyrings have new vitreous enamel badges which will have been made here in England within the last few years – 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.
