‘Experience you cannot buy’
Jet Leathers was founded by Tony Wilson in 1974. By staying with the policy of using NZL 1.4mm cowhide leathers, Jet established a reputation for quality and good service. I’m a second generation family member now running the company and I’m constantly amazed by the feedback from past customers such as, “I bought my Jet jacket back in 1984 and I still have it”.
I formally worked as the manager of our retail store Leather Action in Hastings before moving into the manufacturing side of the business, in which I now have 12 years experience.
I’ve now owned Jet Leathers ( formerly Jetproducts) for over 6 years and our number one priority is still quality products and service.

WHY CHOOSE JET?
We don’t just make garments, we build them. We build them tough. New Zealand cowhide is one of the most resilient leathers in todays world, and unlike some inferior foreign leathers, ours has a supple feel which eliminates the old ‘breaking in period’. Our linings, zips and fasteners are of great quality, and best of all we are a NZ company, making NZ garments, using NZ leathers. The Perfect Combination.
