NZ 100% Full Grain Whisky Aniline Leather

In October 2015, Fiona developed rich, rustic logbook cover using Whisky Aniline leather. Sourced from the New Zealand tannery, this is a simple waxed oil leather which is tannery dyed, and finished with rollers to shine and smooth. Each hide is individual with its depth of colour and visible grain. / or pull-up leathers are simply dyed leather with waxes and oils rolled over the surface which darkens the leather and gives its distressed characteristics.

The leather has a smooth feel, and the whisky colour is rich, working well with your personalise laser engraving. As an oiled and waxed leather, it can be subject to scuffing with rough handling, which can add to its rustic appearance. Simply rubbing the scuffed area with a clean finger until the leather is warm, helps fade the mark.

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.

Perfect Gift for 16th Birthday Solo

Thank you for getting the logbook cover to us on time for my son’s first solo flight on his 16th birthday; and for the lovely high quality finish. He was absolutely delighted with it.

My son had the old cover off his log book and yours on within minutes and he was saying how others at the Aeroclub would probably be envious of it and especially since it was personalised.

Fits perfectly and looks great

Got home from a flight from Thames today to find my logbook cover has arrived.
I’m stoked with it, fits perfectly and looks great.
The hand written note tops it off and shows your attention to detail.
Thank you very much.
