Let me introduce myself! My name is Kira Karpinski, I am from the tiny town of Leechburg, PA, and I have been involved with horses since I was just 2 years old. Growing up in a small Pennsylvania town, I didn't get many opportunities to see the Western lifestyle, let alone learn anything about rodeo until much later in life. I was always an artist, and I knew I belonged in a career that involved both of my passions.
Six years ago, I began painting on old pieces of tack, mostly for myself, but as a little hobby to trade for tack for my own horses. Ever since then, I have become more and more obsessed with diversifying the leather work industry with cutting edge, artistic designs, that are identifiable as a "Double K piece" without seeing the logo. I am passionate about my work, as well as the customers I do it for! I am pro-unique, and I love all the crazy ideas folks bring me.
I hope you enjoy all of the hard work you see on these pages, and I hope you invest in your own piece of Double K Leather Works art. I guarantee my work for life, pending proper care and love from it's owner, you know the saying, "pretty is as pretty does." If you don't see something on these pages you love, please contact me about your own custom piece!
