We love fine handcrafted products especially works of leather art such as the KILLSPENCER Athletics Collection. When we came across KILLSPENCER and the authentic feel-good story behind the brand we couldn’t resist sharing.
KILLSPENCER started as a personal project to craft the perfect sustainable and waterproof backpack by founder Spencer Nikosey. Six years later, Spencer has two amazing workshops and his first storefront where he designs, develops, manufactures, and ships made to order products with his team. A craftsman at heart, Spencer strives to bring a high level of performance, functionality, and quality to his products.
VIDEO: How KILLSPENCER Came To Life
After the release of the Utility and Weekender Collections, KILLSPENCER recently unveiled their Athletics Collection, which includes leather sports balls, a baseball hat, bats, and a boxing speed bag. The unique collection is handcrafted with the finest leathers, suede, and stamped with gold foil emblem. Crafted in the U.S.A., each genuine handmade leather good is made to order in their Los Angeles Workshop by a small team of passionate master craftsman.
