meaningful leather green 300

red menace keyring green 200

From the jackets of Soviet  pilots in the cold war our disparate pieces have the wear and patina of use. Rather than a bland keyring we offer items which commemorate epic events; real action is etched into their surface. These are not mass produced items each one is hand cut out of the jackets and equipment which has survived to tell the tale. You can be the owner of some truly memorable pieces, rugged items which proudly carry the scars of historic use. Each piece comes with a letter on handmade paper telling you about it’s origin. The ‘RED MENACE’ range is our first leather product range and other collections will emerge as materials become available.

US army airforce jacket

USA Airforce 1 250

The A-2 American leather flight jacket was developed for World War Two US Army Air Force pilots, bombardiers and navigators. It’s the iconic American air force jacket and the jacket we have found has the wear you would associate with hard use and given the odour it emitted our jacket has been stored for a long time. It’s a hefty piece of apparel with robust fittings. Even just  carrying a piece of this historic leather incorporated into our products carries an cachet which makes for truly memorable items and of course each piece is unique. We have cleansed the leather and deodorized it so it’s appearance is enhanced.

Each of our leather pieces are works of art and a statement of historic events - each unique if only in a small way. Legends recreated and re-imagined and with pieces such as these they can help define your life and move it from the bland to a more meaningful reality. Of itself age has enhanced the leather and made it more visually appealing without even the consideration of it’s history.

The leather is over one hundred years old and like all our leather it  has a patina which is unique to the piece concerned. After it has been dissembled it will emerge as a very few pieces of items like card carriers and keyrings. All of these items represent historic moments in 20th century history and be treasured as such.
