About Torino Leather Company

Quality is Our Trademark

Torino originated in New Orleans during the 1960's. We set out with the goal of supplying the highest quality leather and exotic skin belts to fine menswear specialty stores across the country.

Torino Leather Company is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year as the premier U.S. manufacturer of fine belts and leather goods. Torino is very proud to call New Orleans home. The rich heritage New Orleans possesses makes a perfect setting for Torino’s old world craftsmanship. Through the years, Torino has built a successful partnership with fine menswear stores across the country.

Over the years, Torino has had many challenges to overcome. Most challenging was on August 29, 2005 when hurricane Katrina made landfall in New Orleans. The factory and everything within was destroyed by floodwaters and the entire staff was evacuated to other states. Torino had 65 employees prior to Katrina and only 4 afterward. Determined to rebuild, the four remaining employees picked up the pieces and moved forward. After moving to a new location on higher ground, Torino began manufacturing operations at the new location on January 1, 2006 and has grown steadily since that time. Although extremely challenging, these tough times have made us all stronger and more committed to making Torino Leather successful.

Torino's superior product is a result of highly skilled craftspeople. Our talented artisans take great pride in the products they produce. Most have worked for our company for many years and have contributed in a major way to our success and growth. Torino is committed to its mission of being the superior brand of American luxury leather goods.
