KILLSPENCER is taking on the task of upgrading Los Angeles, one handcrafted accessory at a time. The newly unveiled Silver Lake workshop/showroom offers customers an opportunity to observe goods being constructed, open kitchen style: laundry bags constructed from repurposed U.S. Air Force issue Pilot BA-22 parachutes, meticulously hand constructed military styled leather luggage for overnight stays or weekend expeditions, and a collection of sleeves, pouches, and cases for a variety of mobile devices...
Name/Title: Spencer Nikosey - owner of KILLSPENCER work/shop
Launch date: 2013
Inspiration for opening: In 2010, we
opened our first Workshop in the Downtown LA Arts District and operated
out of there for the last 3 years. We worked really hard to be able to
build out an optimal environment for handcrafting the highest quality
leather goods possible (we additionally offer a Custom Shop experience where people can add custom monogram
sewn onto their bags and select custom colors/materials for an extra
fee). We exclusively design, develop, manufacture, ship, and now sell our products out of our Silver Lake Workshop and online at KILLSPENCER.com.
Our new space, located in Silver Lake is a super clean, organized, and efficient platform for mastery. I wanted to give our customers the opportunity to come in and see our products being made, carefully, in an amazing naturally lit space, with integrity. It's like an open kitchen.
Merchandise source: We make every product by hand in our Silverlake Workshop by a small team of master craftsmen.
Best selling item: Weekender 3.0, Overnight Duffle, Special Ops Backpack.
Your favorite item: Our new Black Leather Hardshell Briefcase.
Favorite store (other than your own): The Well in downtown LA.
