About Us

The Buttpad Crew - Ali, Barb, and Alexi

Alaska Leather was started in 1979 when Barb started sewing fur hats in Anchorage, Alaska. She became the largest aftermarket motorcycle retailer in all of Alaska, and started creating Buttpads. 

Fast forward to the current times and her youngest daughter, Alexi, and grandchild, Ali, have decided it is time for Barb to take some time off and retire. (she will never get away from us permanently as her knowledge of this business in invaluable).

After many years serving her country in the Military and years of Federal Service, Alexi decided to retire from Federal Service and take over the family business.

Alexi, along with her youngest child, Ali, have moved to Belen, New Mexico, and have relocated the business operation. The weather is a lot better and shipping is cheaper. Riding is possible all year-round here!

Thanks for reading about us, we love all of our customers and love helping you add another 100 miles to your ride. Safe travels!
