About Us


Genuine Leathers Designs was born out of boredom and unemployment; so costume industry professional Rachel Leathers put her sewing skills back to work, and for herself for a change.


Too many jobs are lost to outsourcing, and too many shirts are produced overseas that just don’t have the quality most people are looking for these days. Everyone wants value and workmanship; two things you’ll find here at GLD. All fabrics used are bought from American companies, but some are made outside of the USA. Too much of the textile industry is still outsourced, so it our hope that the changes of the American Made Movement bring back those jobs and industries. Stick with us; it will happen!


We have created a new twist on an old favorite; bowling/Hawaiian shirt styles with added color, dimension, loads of humor and an emphasis on the prints to bring new life and fun back into the mix! Several options are available, and custom orders are always welcomed.


Our shirts are made in Los Angeles, CA with a passion for a well-made American product, and a desire to grow and put even more people back to work! Smoke-free, animal-free studio. Proud to be a part of the Made in America movement!
