White Wing products are flying off the shelves in stores catering to upscale male clientele. These unique canvass and leather pieces are used as luggage for personal accessories and hunting. This is the second in what will become a series of endeavors for Blake and Sarah Leggett as well as Bryce Leggett and Juan Vasquez. This high-end line is currently retailed in 80 different outlets!

The idea of White Wing was born by a desire to produce and sell a top end product which was Made in the USA! The collection of accessories includes computer cases, gun cases, duffle bags, canvas bags and several other use-specific items.

The Leggett’s already own Leggett Tactical Solutions, LTS, which manufactures cloth accessories for use in military combat. Blake Leggett, a Marine himself, launched the company originally to garner sewing contracts for the military. LTS has also grown as they are being relied upon for designing new, innovative products to handle many aspects of military accessories.

White Wing management is appreciative of the support of Angelo State University Small Business Development Center. Sarah Leggett praises their assistance, “I can’t thank the ASU-SBDC enough for their constant continued assistance. Without Peggy Rosser’s guidance throughout this entire process, I can’t imagine where we would be. We are beyond grateful for all they do.”

Adding the White Wing line to the LTS group of products has retained four jobs and created twelve more fulltime jobs.

 

“I can’t thank the ASU-SBDC enough for their constant continued assistance.  Without Peggy Rosser’s guidance throughout this entire process, I can’t imagine where we would be. We are beyond grateful for all they do.”
