Kasey Bracken of KSWB Leather creates handmade, laser engraved leather goods, specializing in journals that come in a variety of covers. KSWB only uses tanned veggie leather, which is not chemically treated and is healthier and better for you and the environment. Producing tanned veggie leather takes approximately 40-60 days and is only accomplished with skilled craftsmanship.
Outside of his leatherwork, Kasey dedicates every chance he gets to be out in the woods, mountains, or fields. The outdoors inspires many of his designs and creations. Through his leatherwork, Kasey has combined his artistic passion with his love of the Pacific Northwest to bring you KSWB.
Kasey’s hope is that his journals will be considered works of art that you can pass down for generations.
A little history
Kasey was born in Olympia, Washington, but lived all over the United States and Mexico. His grandpa supported his creativity and artistic passion sending Kasey to jewelry school in Mexico at 11 years old. Kasey was a natural at creating beautiful pieces of jewelry, which led him to open his first business at Pike Place Market at only 18 years old.
After 23 years of designing and producing jewelry, in 2020, Kasey decided it was time for a change. He wanted to take his artistic ability and create products that are modern with a vintage flair. He felt the best way to do this was to design products with leather. Through his leatherwork he has combined this new desire with his love of the Pacific Northwest to bring you KSWB Leather.
