Featured Products

All products are made by hands using only high-quality materials and with particular attention to detail. This is what makes it possible to create high quality products.

The main focus is on leather quality. For the manufacturing of all of our products we only use full-grain leather. That means that the leather was not been sanded, buffed, or snuffed (as opposed to top-grain or corrected leather) to remove imperfections (or natural marks) on the surface of the hide, so the grain has not been altered.

My name is Igor Balabanov, and I've been making leather goods since 2013. Leathercraft started for me simply as a hobby. It was after about two years of working with the leather that I decided to launch the Balabanoff brand.

Our logo is a saker falcon, a type of one of the largest and heaviest hunting falcon species. Found most commonly in Eastern Europe. In Ukrainian, its name is “balaban”, which is why those known for breeding and training these creatures were commonly called Balabanov.
