NZ 100% Nubuck Leather

In June 2015, our leather artisan, Fiona Ritchie, experimented with Nubuck Leather and laser engraving for a contemporary pilot logbook cover. The distinctive leather logbook cover was greatly admired and today is Sparrowhawk leather’s most popular logbook cover.

This NZ Tannery produced, full grain aniline dyed leather, is lightly buffed on the top grain surface. This sometimes leaves light scars and hide characteristics while creating a soft velvety feel nap. The light Mocha colour is the perfect background for your distinctive laser engraving

True Leather Craftmanship

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 piece with an exceedingly rare look, that is uniquely 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.
