Our Story

Lotus Leather’s story began over a decade ago, when Kayla stumbled upon antique leather-working tools through the doors of a rustic thrift shop. Brimming with absolute determination and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, she spent countless late nights honing her craft within the walls of her family’s old farmhouse. As the young woman’s skills and understanding grew, so did her passion for leather-work.

With Kayla’s talents in the craft gaining more recognition, custom orders began to pour in, and then a life-altering injury forced her husband, Derik, to switch career paths. Deciding to take a leap of faith, with each other and themselves, the couple went on to pursue art full-time together.



Returning to school, Derik cultivated new skills that complemented Kayla’s stunning leatherwork. Majoring in Digital Media and Fine Art, he mastered graphic design and airbrush painting techniques, which all have aided in enriching the aesthetics and productivity of their business.

 Today, their small yet mighty team dedicate their time and talents towards creating handcrafted leather goods. Which blend traditional techniques with modern designs to produce such beautiful works of art. They are passionate about their craft and pour their hearts into every piece they create for those who truly love and enjoy their work.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to share our love of leather-working with you, and we hope our products bring joy and beauty to your everyday life. Thank you for supporting our dream!” - Lotus Leather.
