People's Choice Award: Clo’s General Leather Co.

Whether navigating the urban jungle or the open road, Kyle Closen’s handcrafted leather products are made to last a lifetime of adventure.

“Leather, canvas and denim are all materials that are strong enough to withstand the test of time if they’re put together the right way,” he says.

Closen’s quality handmade wares celebrate the raw, natural beauty of leather, which only gets better through use. The vegetable tan treatment allows the material to darken and patina over time. Belts, bags and motorcycle accessories take on character through everyday exploits.

A welder by trade, Closen turned his passion for leather work into a full-time enterprise after work dried up in the oil fields. His Weekend Warrior bag was voted Edmonton Made’s People Choice Award winner.
