100% Full Grain, Hand Dyed Leather

Each Sparrowhawk Leather piece is made to order by skilled Leather Artisan, Fiona Ritchie.

Fiona uses time honoured leathercraft techniques, including hand embossing and hand dyeing, allowing Sparrowhawk customers specify the colour and personalization of their piece.

By carefully selecting the leather to cut from the hide, and hand rubbing their dye colour to enhance its individual grain, Fiona crafts a one-off piece, with a unique finish, that is exclusively theirs.

Fiona's leather knowledge, designs and craftsmanship ensures each customer's Sparrowhawk leather piece is fit for purpose, beautiful and stands the test of time.

Since then, I have made close to 1000 leather pieces from my Hunua Farm workshop. These include wallets, journal covers and documents holders. Each one is custom made, and personalised for its owner. Sparrowhawk Leather’s renowned Pilot Logbook covers are trusted and treasured by hundreds of pilots across NZ and Australia.

Whether commissioned as special gifts, business accessories or for personal use, Sparrowhawk Leather’s bespoke pieces are prized by their owners and recognised for their distinctive quality.

My partner is just loving it

Thank you for the French Navy & Black billfold Wallet with embossed initials. It arrived at the end of the week, and I was able to wrap it and present it to my partner - he was so delighted! The wallet is absolutely beautiful and holds so many things - the number of slips and pockets is amazing, and we love the cunning design of the fold part where the external leather has a little space across the fold to take the stress. The finish on the leather looks sumptuous and my partner is just loving it.

Thank you so much!!

Fantastic present

Just wanted to let you know that the wallet arrived this afternoon.
Really pleased with it and my husband loved it.
I’m sure he is going to get lots of years of use from it.
I had ordered it for his birthday.
Thank you for such great workmanship and a fantastic present, for the man who has everything.
Definitely will be recommending you to others.

Love the wallet

My wallet arrived today which was quicker than expected with covid-19 delays.
I absolutely love the wallet, the colour pattern, sturdiness, size and amount that it can hold is absolutely stunning. Thank you for
your craftsmanship and hard work because I have absolutely no idea how you got that streaked pattern, it looks even better than the photos.
Thank you for the little sample piece of leather, it is a cool thing to look at the work in progress.
I will be sure to recommend you to family and friends and all the best for your future endeavours.

The secret to the 'streaks'. When I cut the leather piece from the hide, I saw that there was a pronounced grain. When I applied the dye, I did so very gradually, with the first few applications being very light so that the grain was accentuated. This is why there are the streaks.

I include a work in progress sample, which is a scrap of leather that I do a trial emboss of the initials, Sparrowhawk stamp, and the dye colour. I include it in the wallet presentation box to show the leatherwork process.
