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.
