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.

Our Founder

Fiona Ritchie Leather Artisan & Pilots Wife

Sparrowhawk Leather took flight in 2014 when I made my first Pilot Logbook cover for my Airline pilot husband, Nick. Unable to find a robust, handmade leather cover like the one he’d purchased 30 years earlier, Nick asked that I make covers to fit his current and older logbook.

Since then, I have made over 500 personalised leather logbook covers for pilots in New Zealand, Australia, US, UK and Hong Kong. As Sparrowhawk Leather became known, pilots requested more personalisation and custom made options, as well as Pilot Licence wallets and Men’s wallets. Today Sparrowhawk Leather makes the widest range of Pilot Logbook Covers available in the world, all from my Farm Workshop in Hunua, New Zealand.

Stunning Logbook Cover

I purchased this logbook cover (Initially custom made for me and later introduced to the store) a few weeks back, and have been absolutely blown away by the construction of the logbook cover, the details, the communication from Fiona and the ease of the whole process.

I would definitely recommend Sparrowhawk Leather to anyone who wants beautifully hand crafted logbook covers that look great and are likely to last a lifetime (or two)!

The Ultimate Logbook Cover

As an Airline Captain, I regard this as the ultimate pilot logbook cover. It's unique and greatly admired by senior pilots and flight examiners when I take it to my Sim. Not only does it look, feel and smell like the best quality leather, its wings carving is amazing to touch. The wrap closure is the perfect protection for my current logbook. It looks great with my logbook collection, and is something I'll be proud to leave, with my logbooks, to my sons.
