Founded in the historical city of Hull in 1926, Gostelows has been a family run business since day one, with a strong family work ethic and close working relationship between all departments as one of the longest standing leather bag, vinyl bag and knife sheath design and manufacturers in the UK.
In the ’40s and ’50s, we were one of the largest handmade suitcase and satchel manufacturers in the UK, employing over fifty people with a purpose-built factory.
Gostelows has moved forward with the times manufacturing bespoke and custom products for a large number of companies in several industries throughout the years. Each member of the team with a passion for the craft and the tasks to hand.
In February 2019 Fentex limited bought Gostelows and they are now a part of the Fentex Family of companies. This provides increased UK distribution and administrative support together with substantial investment in manufacturing and new product development.
