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.
Merchandise source: We make every product by hand in our Silverlake Workshop by a small team of master craftsmen.
Your favorite item: Our new Black Leather Hardshell Briefcase.
Favorite store (other than your own): The Well in downtown LA.
