Eubanks Leather Company History
Pioneer Leather - Idaho Leather


Eubanks Leather Co. was started in Boise, Idaho in 1939 by the Eubanks family. They produced high quality gun leather and other leather goods until 1950, when the name and business were sold to the Pioneer Tent and Awning Co., which had been in business since about 1900.  They began using some of the Eubanks gun leather patterns and were branding their gun leather "Pioneer Leather", and also used the "Eubanks, Boise, Idaho" name in their mark to associate themselves with the earlier company.  They continued in business until 1972.

Back in 1955, Royal Eubanks, son of the original founder of Eubanks Leather, went into business again as the Idaho Leather Co. making the same type of products that were made by the earlier Eubanks Co. They continue in business today, run by Ben Wetzel, the third generation to operate the business. They are still in the same location as the original Eubanks Leather Co.  For more background information on the Eubanks family, click here.
