With only a few exceptions, every leather item they sell is made in their Main Street workrooms by craftsmen with a combined 100+ years of experience. Quillins' 16 employees produce a variety of products, from key tags, belts and dog collars to halters worn by leading stallions and multi-million dollar Keeneland sales toppers.

Attention to detail, impeccable craftsmanship and personal service has made Quillin Leather & Tack synonymous with quality for over 40 years.

    Quillin Leather & Tack is housed in a 1920's two story wood framed home that was converted in 1982 to house our shop, showroom and offices. They've outgrown the original structure three times. The main showroom is located at 1929 Main Street and is easily accessible by stairs or you can drop off your repairs at the basement door. was launched in 1995 and there is now a second location and production space at 723 Main Street, in Downtown Paris. This 1897 Mercantile is being restored and the 6000 ft two story building houses Quillins leather manufacturing with a small Downtown showroom coming fall of 2023. We still take orders the old fashioned way - in person or by phone, plus offer a full featured OnLine store featuring all of our leather goods. 

    Our Halters have gone to domestic and international clients since 1979. Our longevity reflects our reputation for the best customer service and products in the business, underpinned by our commitment to quality leather goods. "it’s what you’d expect when the name on the outside is the same as the owners", Says Jim Fitzgerald local thoroughbred farm owner and long time customer.
