Kyle Shaver is the owner and primary craftsman for Shaver Leather.  Although he works full time in the medical field, leather craft has always been a part of his life.  He began doing leatherwork as a child, with his father and in 4-H. For many years, the hobby focused on creating belts, wallets, bible covers and other similar items.   In May 1999, this hobby became a business when a fly fishing guide approached Kyle about making him a leather fly rod case.  Together they worked out a design that was functional and beautiful.  In the following years, Kyle attended several outdoor expos to feature these handcrafted leather products.  As a result of interest and demand, Shaver Leather was created.  Since then, Kyle has been improving designs, trying new patterns, and expanding the products offered. 


Every project starts with raw unfinished, natural colored leather.   Each piece is completely cut, tooled, colored, and assembled by hand.  Shaver Leather does not use any machine stamps or stitching for the main components of the pieces.  Because of the variability in leather tanning, each final product is different than every other, even if the process of creating them is very similar.

Shaver Leather meets a demand for high-quality, handcrafted leather goods. Unique products such as these are becoming harder and harder to find; the Shaver family is happy to carry on a traditional skill and blend it with new ideas and innovation.
