Wilsons Leather apparel and accessories are designed in today's latest fashions. Style. Quality. And value. Looks you'll love from Wilsons Leather.
Wilsons Leather is an international specialty retailer of leather outerwear, sportswear, and accessories. Our history dates back to 1899 when Berman Brothers Fur and Wool Trading Company was created in Minnesota. The business bought hides and fur from hunters and trappers to manufacture into leather apparel and accessories. The production plant evolved throughout the years, meeting the needs of the growing retail chain until 1981.
Fifty years after the Bermans started their business, a family named Wilson started Wilson's House of Suede and Leather in Southern California. Four decades later the two national chains combined to form what is known today as Wilsons Leather, the largest specialty retailer of leather apparel and accessories in the United States.
As a vertically-integrated company, we design, develop, and deliver leather fashions to the marketplace at a great value. Our designers and buyers work closely to identify trends and develop fashion-forward leather styles. They travel the world to select the hides, then contract with manufacturers to transform the leather into quality, affordable fashion. Wilsons Leather also works with various tanneries researching ways to improve leather quality and innovations in finish, texture, and color. With an extensive background in the leather industry, we continue our longstanding reputation as leaders in leather design, manufacture, and retail sales.
As of May 3, 2003, Wilsons Leather operated 612 stores located in 45 states, the District of Columbia and Canada including 478 mall stores, 111 outlet stores and 23 airport stores. The Company, which regularly supplements its permanent mall stores with seasonal stores during its peak selling season from October through January, operated 284 seasonal stores in 2002.
