Falco Holsters began in 1989 when a high school falconry teacher in Slovakia started crafting cow leather gloves for the pursuit, as well as a few handgun holsters. Demand quickly for his designs quickly outgrew his spare time.
He resigned his educational position and opened Falco from his garage. At his side regularly, learning the trade, was his 14-year-old son, Róbert Kováč. Today that youngster runs the company and it’s grown considerably. The firm’s lineup now includes a full spectrum of holsters and Falco handles a variety of special orders for law enforcement and military.
It’s also moved out of that small garage. Using European- and American-made materials, its finished products now come out of a much larger, more modern factory in Slovakia.
