Kara Ginther is a leather artist whose creative spirit and love of nature inspires her to create meticulously hand-tooled leather bicycle saddles.
Kara’s passion for leatherwork began as a student in textiles at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and has developed into an enthusiastic and passionate study of leather’s endless potential. Using fine wood carving tools, she hand carves each saddle with intricate patterns, removing the thinnest surface layer to create rich contrast and texture in the leather. The result is an exquisite piece of functional artistry that is almost too pretty to sit on.
Kara lives and works in Columbus, Wis.
