About Us

Welcome to Kubatana Leather

At Kubatana Leather, unity is not just a concept; it's a powerful force that transforms ideas into reality. Founded by six friends who shared a passion for leather craftsmanship, Kubatana is the culmination of our collective vision to merge our individual talents and experiences into a single creative endeavor.

Our journey began with two separate leather companies, each driven by a commitment to quality and a love for the craft. Ark Leather, launched in 2020, started as a hobby and evolved into a full-blown reality. We created bespoke, high-quality leather products designed to be worn, loved, and cared for, blending timeless design with functionality. Our roots trace back to humble beginnings in a garage, where we stitched items ourselves at night and slated skins with our own hands.

M Square Leather, established in 2018 by a proud South African husband and wife duo, brought a deep commitment to passion and sustainability. Their meticulous attention to detail ensured that every stitch counted, creating timeless leather goods that reflect their dedication and craftsmanship.

Recognizing a shared desire to elevate our work to new heights, we saw an opportunity to combine our expertise, resources, and most importantly, our passion, to create something truly extraordinary. Thus, Kubatana Leather was born.

Our Philosophy

Kubatana, derived from the Shona word for unity, embodies our core philosophy. It represents the coming together of diverse talents and perspectives to form a harmonious whole. In every stitch, cut, and design, you'll find the spirit of collaboration and cooperation that defines who we are.

But Kubatana is more than just a leather company; it's a reflection of our shared values and aspirations. We're not just in the business of crafting beautiful products; we're in the business of creating moments of joy, inspiration, and connection. Whether it's a meticulously handcrafted bag, a finely tooled wallet, or a custom-made accessory, each piece tells a story of craftsmanship, creativity, and collaboration.

Our Commitment

Our commitment to unity extends beyond our workshop walls. We believe in fostering meaningful connections—with our customers, our community, and each other. We strive to create an inclusive and supportive environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered to contribute their unique talents.
