Inspired by vintage leather goods, Jay Teske Leather Co. creates straightforward and functional products that will last a lifetime. We exclusively use the highest quality hides, from the few remaining American leather tanneries.
With a passion for vintage and antique motorcycles, Jay Teske found his way into custom motorcycle seat upholstery and founded Pirate Upholstery in 2006 after leaving the NYC tattoo trade behind to tour Asia by motorcycle with his wife and business partner, Hadas Liebermann.
Over the past decade, Jay has developed a cult following among motorcyclists for handcrafting premium, bespoke leather motorcycle seats and bags. His work has been seen on the Discovery Channel’s “American Choppers” and most recently at the 2015 World Wrestling Entertainment championship, for which he was commissioned to construct the title belt.
In 2014, Jay and his wife launched Jay Teske Leather Co. to bring Teske’s craftsmanship to a wider clientele.
