Lost Kind are makers and designers of simple, durable and practical leather goods. We pride ourselves on making our products to last you a lifetime, fitting in with a simple and considered life style. We are rooted by the belief that every wallet or accessory we make is an heirloom of our own future and our products are created under the principle that quality, longevity and functionality comes before all else.
The importance of a well-made wallet, an invaluable tool for our day-to-day lives, was the foundation of our work. No fuss, no frills, just hard wearing and functional goods designed to be cherished.
Founded in 2012, we devoted the majority of our time purely to sourcing our material, seeking a supplier of vegetable tanned leather from which our first wallet was forged. Since, we have laboured over countless designs to produce a selection of goods that have been tried, tested and guaranteed to be something worth keeping hold of.
The products we make use only vegetable tanned leather that is guaranteed to be produced through environmentally friendly methods. It does not contain any toxic substances making it safe for those with metal related allergies.
All the raw hides we use in our workshop are by-products, discarded from the food industry. The tanneries we source our leather from have made substantial investments in to their purification systems and recycling programs to guarantee they are as environmentally friendly as possible. Many of the substances used during the tanning process are recovered, recycled and reused in different fields.
The vegetable tanned leather we use does not contain any azo-dyes, nickel, PCP, chrome VI or other toxic substances.
