Kit Kraft inc. was founded in 1946 when Joe and Gussie Sitkin discovered their love for leather crafting after learning about it in the USO. Their first products for sale were leather- crafting kits for wallets, handbags, belts, moccasins, and fashion accessories under the name "Double K Brand". We have always worked hard to be a customer driven company. When customers ask for certain items, we find them, then we'll order two so we can keep one in stock for someone else. That is probably why we have such an eclectic selection of products!
Since its opening, Kit Kraft has been a family run business, now entering its third generation. The first location was in a closet in the back of another store on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, Ca. Later, as the business grew, it was moved to a storefront of its own also on Melrose Ave. By 1954, Our mail order business was expanding and more floor space was needed. The valley looked like a good place for a growing business, so the store was moved to 12109 Ventura Pl. in Studio City, Ca., its current location.
