Founded by Gary & Alan McCormack in 2011, we have been on a mission to create beautiful personalised leather accessories using the highest quality material. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and our ability to individually brand and personalise all of our products quickly in-house.
In November 2011 we began handcrafting a range of wood and leather tech accessories in a humble garden shed. We designed products that we wanted to use ourselves and had a lot of fun doing it. We developed our own ecommerce store and began marketing and selling our goods online. CarveOn was born.
In 2013, after some initial success, a lot of hard work and armed with a grant from our extremely supportive Local Enterprise Office, we moved the business to a former milking-parlour on a farm in our home-village of Kill, Co. Kildare. The converted farmyard was home to lots of other small manufacturing businesses who were quick to share equipment, resources, and expertise.
A New Home
Fast forward to 2016, CarveOn had quickly built up a loyal customer base of clients worldwide. With a rise in bulk orders from corporate clients, it was time for a bigger space and a bigger team.
We found an old 15,000 ft2 metalwork factory which had been unused for over eight years situated in Kilcullen, Co.Kildare. It was a fixer-upper but had the perfect amount of character. Over the next six months, assisted by family and friends, we painstakingly refurbished one of the two buildings on the one-acre site.
Our new workshop is our second home. It's a place designed to encourage and celebrate creativity, innovation, tradition, and friendship. It's home to old and new manufacturing equipment including industrial sewing machines, leather splitters, embossing presses, laser engravers, a photography studio, offices, meeting rooms, and creative spaces.
Now with over 10 years of experience in the industry CarveOn has become the go-to company for leather accessories in Ireland with over 25 different accessories available in a multitude of colours with new & exciting launches coming very soon!
Our Sustainability Commitment
At CarveOn we go to great lengths to ensure our suppliers are environmentally conscious. We take the mistreatment of the environment extremely seriously both as individuals and collectively as a business.
It’s important when making a leather purchase to consider the different options.
