My name is Andrew Gilkerson and since I was 15 years old I have been perfecting the craft of quality handcrafted leather goods. I married my wife Kathleen in 1989 and together we have built a business based on quality products and customer satisfaction. Ace Leather Goods, Inc. has been serving the Greater Northwest at many of the finest arts & crafts shows, as well as maintaining a retail location since 1982. I first started doing leatherwork in a garage in Seattle. I worked for ten months there and went back to the San Francisco Bay Area where I was raised. A belt manufacturing company that taught me a lot of product knowledge and craftsmanship employed me. At seventeen, I was in charge of their belt production and five employees. After two years, I returned to Seattle where I went to work back in the same garage, with substantially more knowledge. I was completely in charge of the shop and made everything myself. I also developed a wholesale line and started to merchandise and sell the products as well. Due to unusual circumstances, I had the opportunity to start my own company and since that time, I have acquired four small leather businesses. Through a tremendous amount of support and work by my wife and my family Ace Leather Goods, Inc. was born and continues to thrive due to all of your support. Thank you, for everything!
