The year was 1938 and under the original name of Boston Novelty Company we made leather tags, name plates, cases, bags, etc. In the early 1940s the name changed to Boston Leather and the focus turned to law enforcement. We have expanded into other areas but always with an accentuation on the public service market. We have broadened our fire-related line and have introduced police K-9 items. We have the ability to manufacture custom leather Products but our bread and butter is the "Uniformed Professional." Leather remains the material of choice. It is the best material for the items that we manufacture. When worn or carried leather becomes a part of you. It is comfortable, long lasting, very strong, and good looking. All items sold by us are made in our shop in Sterling, Illinois. We are committed to domestic manufacturing. All leather used is full grain from U.S. steers. All leather is tanned in the U.S.A. We manufacture a quality item and stand behind it fully. You will not buy a better Product anywhere.
