Lil Tex Leatherworks
My wife and I are very family-oriented—that’s how we want to conduct our business, treat every customer like family. I’m happy to help people get exactly what they’re looking for, and if I don’t have what they want, I’m happy to refer them somewhere else. That creates a trust, so when that customer comes back—and they do—they usually bring a friend!
I got my start working with leather in an Amish harness making shop,” remembers Jerub. “I learned well, and the work we did was exceptional…second to none. I loved my craft, but the hours were long and my family was growing, so I knew I needed a schedule that was more family friendly. We decided to move to Tyler, Texas—there was a need in this area for a custom leather shop, and I get to spend more time with my family. I’m a one-man shop so it can be hard, but everyday I keep working—this is my passion.”
At Lil Tex, Jerub is committed to quality products and customer satisfaction. He offers a variety of services, including several standard made products like belts and key chains, as well as repairs and custom leather work that are made to order. He’s also gaining quite a reputation for his beautiful leather holsters that fit virtually any handgun.
Jerub knows it takes time, patience and hard work for Lil Tex Leatherworks to grow. He knows this well, and that’s why he strives to produce such exceptional quality in every stitch of work he produces. “I add a personal touch to everything I do,” says Jerub. “I like to think that my products…and reputation…speak for themselves, and that both will hold up over time.”
