New vendor alert! New vendor alert! Bringing his leather goods from (ultra-cool) Saskatoon is Brad Kimball of Creature Leather. Here's what he has to say about himself and his work:
Creature Leather is a one man operation based out of Saskatoon SK. Originally from Winnipeg where I started working with leather, I shortly moved out to Saskatoon in the summer of 2014.
Working with my hands has always been an interest and strength of mine. Creature Leather is built on Producing quality hand made goods out of ethically sourced material that can stand the test of time and grow into life with the person that is using that product.
Every product Is designed, tested and manufactured by myself. Controlling the series of steps in achieving the final result for each product is key to ensuring that there are no slips in quality. I am very detail oriented and I try to make that very evident in my work. I think there is a lot to be said for details that are left out in order to have a product look its best. Creating minimal functional goods is the goal.
All materials are sourced by myself. Taking templates I have created I then trace, hand cut, punch, sew and finish my products.
We can't wait. All kinds of awesomeness coming out of Saskatoon these days, right? You'll find Creature Leather at the December 9-11 edition of the Royal Bison. Until then, follow along on the Instagram!
