The Project

Over the past couple of years, we have found that there is a definite need for the perfect leather bag. We have spent over two years figuring out what that bag would look like, and we are finally ready to produce it.

We have also realized that in order to meet the needs of our customers, we need to expand our product line and design and produce the products that have been asked for and suggested to us.

In response, we have created a new line of leather products that will meet those needs and suggestions! Sourced from 100% genuine buffalo leather.

Why Buffalo Leather?

  • Buffalo leather is superior to cow leather in several manners. According to Rocky Mountain Tanners, buffalo leather is more resistant to damage from ripping, stretching and excessive heat. It's also more breathable than cow leather, making it better for a wider range of temperatures. 
  • Buffalo leather is frequently used in military gear. Furniture and clothing benefit from buffalo leather's durability and ease of maintenance. Buffalo leather also has a distinctive texture that makes it sought-after for all sorts of aesthetic purposes. It possesses a "pebbly" appearance that works well for coats or briefcase covers. Buffalo leather can even be maintained with conditioners meant for cow leather; it requires no special care compared to other kinds of leather.
  • In it's natural state, the buffalo hide is thicker than the cowhide.

With your support and pledging towards our Kodiak Leather products, you will be making a HUGE difference in the Kodiak Leather manufacturing process, and will help us make these leather items available to everyone.

The new product line includes:

  • Buffalo Leather Satchel
  • Buffalo Leather Wallet
  • Buffalo Leather Dopp Bag

Risks and challenges

The challenges that come with this project are the actual production of these new items and the time constraints of manufacturing the product line. We also have suppliers that need to deliver on time in order to get your rewards out to you by the set date.

We are very confident that we can accomplish all of this! We are currently producing a number of leather products and as we have been in business since 2014, we know how to get our ideas off of paper and into the hands of our customers.

Although we do not foresee any hold ups, if there are any delays in production we will contact you with an expected completion date!
