ABOUT WGC | Whitten Gun Cases

Whitten Gun Cases was established and is owned by Jillian Whitten in Palm Harbor, Florida. Whitten Gun Cases is a full division of an old family business called Whitten Cases. Growing up in the family business witnessing her parents dedication to excellence inspired Jillian to craft a business of her own. She coupled her leather ingenuity with her involvement in the sports of hunting and shooting and focused on perfecting the "Gun Case." Jillian took an old family design and reinvented it to conceive THE WHITTEN GUN CASE.

The WHITTEN GUN CASE design exterior is made of all leather and wild/ exotic hides including genuine stingray zipper tabs. The inside is comprised of durable materials including Whitten's signature one inch memory foam and soft black suede cloth.


Jillian takes her clients wishes and designs each case herself. She then hand makes each case from start to completion in the Whitten Gun Cases leather workshop. The Whitten Gun Cases leather workshop holds hundreds of different genuine cowhide leathers and wild/ exotic hides including a bountiful supply of reptile and mammal hides, domestic and international. One of Jillian's specialties is taking customer harvested hides and using them to create custom goods.


Whitten Gun Cases primary goal is to consistently serve the firearm industry with the dedication and determination to provide its clients with the perfect hand crafted home for their firearms. Whitten Gun Cases strives to be known as the most highly regarded leather custom gun case maker in the industry.



Whitten Cases was started by Jillian's parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Lee and Ivonne Whitten, in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1987. Whitten Cases was established as a custom billiard leather cue case company and has served the billiard industry as the highest end, top leather case-maker in the world. Whitten Cases has held the highest regarded reputation

in quality, protection and pure design for 30 years. Whitten Cases is now owned and extraordinarily operated by Jillian's brother, Joseph Whitten.



A Special note: The Whitten Gun Case logo image is of Jillian and her husband's late German Shorthaired Pointer, named Watkin. The logo mimics his exact color and markings. Watkin was German Shorthaired Pointer perfection and came from a long line of champions. Watkin has been compared to a cross between a Mustang horse, a diesel truck and an olympic athlete. He had the energy of a thousand dogs and the temperament of a loyal friend. He is insurmountably missed.
