About KT Leather Designs: Karen Taber has been in the leather business for over 48 years. Jess has been working full-time with her mom for 24 years. Unique, long-lasting leather purses, leather belts, and other leather goods.

Our goal is to make functional and durable leather goods for our customers.

Karen designed and created all of the products you see. The process starts by using Plexiglas patterns from Karen’s orginal designs, and then the top-grain cowhide is hand cut with an Olfa knife. The belts are hand cut, hand edged, dyed, and waxed to a luster. The most difficult part of our work is to find top quality leather at an affordable price. We use nylon thread and use solid brass hardware for long, long life.

Unique Texture Leather
We have a textured leather made to our specifications, multi color. There is only one guy, Tom, that will make this leather for us. It takes about a year and a half to make a batch. This leather is heat embossed and then dyed with hand rubbed metallic dyes to highlight the textured design. This leather wears like iron and is maintenance free.

Long Lasting
Customers are amazed at how long our leather goods last. We are please to hear many stories of thier durability. One woman even carried one of our purses for over 25 years until she saw us again to purchase a new one. These are the kind of customers KT Leather Designs thrives on!

If you have any questions or would like to order, please give us a call or e-mail.
