Leather Luster, Inc. was founded by Mr. Paul Paquet in the state of New York. Mr. Paquet was a New York State Trooper and spent a considerable amount of time having to repeatedly polish his gun belt and boots. He decided there must be a better way to do this without so much time and effort. Thus, In the fall of 1965, Mr. Paquet developed Leather Luster.
Over the past 40 years, Leather Luster has gone from an idea, to supplying law enforcement, fire and rescue, professional umpires, referees, and sports officials as well as military personnel around the world.
