Continuing its travels across Canada and the United States, The Moosehead Journey lands in beautiful Vancouver, British Colombia, to chat with Ken Diamond, expert leather worker. In between sips of Moosehead Lager, Ken explains his passion for leather work and why he’s so dedicated to the craft.

After a stint in the film and theater industry, Ken Diamond pursued a career in handmade leather goods. Diamond wants to keep the leather work industry vibrant by adding his own modern techniques to his creations, hoping to spread interest in a craft that has seen better days. His designs are simple and minimalistic, carrying a sense of timelessness and durability. In an era where handmade goods are fewer and further between, it’s only proper to raise a toast to Ken Diamond for his hard work and dedication to things made well.
