At Popov Leather, we’re proud to be a brand our customers can trust. Starting in 2024 we plan to take that a step further.

Each month, we plan to highlight current and upcoming events so you know exactly what to expect. Our goal is to treat you like a member of the team. After all, without our customers, we wouldn’t be here.

Welcome to the workshop! 

Current Sales and Events

We're starting the year off with two special sales and a sweepstakes event. 

Love Your Desk Event

As you kick off the new year, it can be nice to get a fresh start. One way to do this is to get organized by revitalizing your office space.

In celebration, we hosted a “Love Your Desk” event for the first half of the month. Customers saved 30% on items from our home office collection, including: 

Although this sale has ended, these items are still available on our website. If you were late to the game, this is a great place to spend those Patina club perk points you've been saving up. 

January's Instant Win Sweepstakes

This month we’re giving away ten handcrafted wallets free of charge. 

For a chance to win, enter our January Instant Win Contest. All you have to do is give us your name and email address. This is an instant-win sweepstakes, which means that you’ll learn right away whether you’re one of the ten lucky winners this month. Remember: only one entry per person. 

Get It in Time for Valentine's Day

On the hunt for the perfect gift this Valentine’s Day? Whether you’re shopping for a friend, child, or significant other, Valentine’s Day can come with a lot of pressure. 

This year, skip generic gifts like flowers or chocolates. Instead, consider investing in a sustainable, heirloom-quality accessory. 

From January 16th - January 25th, we are running a “Get It in Time for Valentine’s Day” sale, featuring leather tote bags and leather wallets for 25% off. 

These are some of our most popular items, making them an easy win for whomever you’re shopping for this year. And because they’re manufactured with high-quality materials, they’ll last for years. 

Order by January 25th and rest easy knowing that your gift will be in your hands in time for Valentine’s Day. 

Bought one for my wife and loved the quality and rawness of the bag - super sturdy and well made. A really beautiful piece to look at.

January Product Launches

One of our more exciting January updates, this month we re-launch some of our favorite products with a crisp facelift. 

Updated Coasters and Keychains

Starting this week, you’ll find us re-introducing our coasters and keychains with one notable update. We’re using our brand new heat-stamping press to create crisp impressions that will last a lifetime. 

Not only that, but we’re introducing a new Sasquatch design that we think you’re going to love. Whether you call it Bigfoot, Yeti, or Sasquatch, these legends have swept across North America for years. As a proud Canadian-based company that exclusively uses leather tanned in the United States, we’re excited to feature a nod to this local lore on our new lineup of coasters and keychains. 

Upcoming Product Launches

We are working hard to bring new Popov Leather items to our website. Every time we launch a new product, we make sure the details are just right, featuring the high-quality manufacturing you've come to expect. 

Introducing Hats with Custom Leather Patches

In the workshop this month, we’re working hard to bring you a new lineup of hats featuring our custom leather patches. We’re hoping to have these hats ready by March, in time for Popov Leather’s 11-year anniversary. 

The hats will be available in a variety of colors, with options for either rounded or rectangular patches in different styles. As with our coasters and keychains, these patches will be printed using our heat-stamping press, ensuring a crisp, clear design. And with an early Spring launch, you can have your new hat in your hands well before camping season kicks off this year.

Limited Time Color

One of our goals for 2024 is to showcase a new leather color each quarter. These leather hues will be available for a limited time only and will be featured on a belt and matching accessories. We’ll be kickstarting this next month. This brown leather we’re featuring is unlike any we’ve seen before and has a stunning finish

This new leather is also notable because it’s an extra-thick, 13 oz leather. Our traditional leather belts are 9 oz belts, so if you’ve been on the hunt for something exceptionally thick and durable, this is your opportunity. 

Not sure what the difference between a 9 oz or a 13 oz belt is? Each ounce is equivalent to about 0.4 millimeters. 

Check out this quick conversion table, which includes examples of how leather at different thicknesses is commonly used: 

Ounces Millimeters Inches Common Examples
9 oz 3.6 mm 0.14 inches Sturdy Belts
10 oz 4.0 mm 0.15 inches Heavy Straps
11 oz 4.4 mm 0.17 inches Horse Halters
12 oz 4.8 mm 0.18 inches Cattle Halters
13 oz 5.2 mm 0.20 inches Stirrup Straps

That’s It for January Updates. See You Next Month!

Thanks for coming on this trip through the workshop with us. We’re excited to be sharing everything new at Popov Leather with you. 

Remember to enter our January sweepstakes for the chance to win a free leather wallet. 

And if a full-grain leather accessory sounds like the perfect Valentine’s Gift for your loved ones, buy early to guarantee on-time delivery.  

We’ll see you again next month.

Would be cool if you had an A4 padfolio thing. Not much out there in the wild that will last a lifetime. I’m a realtor so want space for A4 paper pad, card & pen slots, etc. Also, your dog collar is a bit too chunky for smaller dogs. If you made one the same thickness as the leash I’d definitely consider buying one.
