Kika NY was founded in 2009 bij Kika Vliegenthart & Sabine Spanjer.Both born in the Netherlands, Sabine was an interactive designer before moving to Brooklyn, and Kika finished her MA in Economics before becoming a leathersmith under Barbara Shaum in Manhattan.
Our goal is to design high quality goods that will last a lifetime - ones with clean, simple lines that eliminate the unnecessary.All of our products are handmade with traditional techniques passed on from legendary leathersmith Barbara Shaum.Kika trained and worked with Barbara for more than 15 years and worked along side her for designers like Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, and Donna Karen.
To keep the the tradition alive, we work with machines custom-built for our studio and tools from old-school suppliers in France and the UK. Most of our resources come from Europe as well. We use high-end leather from Portugal, Italy, and Belgium, and our solid brass hardware is hand-tooled in a family-owned foundry in Europe.
