We are custom hardware specialists.

So many times we see beautiful and expensive handbags or shoes with cheap standard hardware.  No wonder these products fail to reach good sales target. 

In the tough competition for prominence in the luxury goods world, hardware and materials are increasingly the factors that make a difference. 

We offer expertise in both, to make sure your product will be absolutely outstanding.  Your custom hardware will be made by the famous Italian makers who already serve the world's top 20 brands. Any design can be made, the only limit is your imagination. 

Over 45 different colours of real gold, palladium, nickel, silver platings are available. Your own custom colour shade can be developed as well.  Custom metal brand name plates, custom emblems, custom hinges, custom rings, custom locks, custom buckles, custom magnetic closures, custom zip pullers and all other metallic hardware required in fashion.

Our fine hardware pieces are often obtained one by one from solid metal bars, carefully machined by the most advanced CNC equipment.  Moulding is also employed as well as laser engraving. Single prototypes offered based on your sketches and specifications.  We make hardware in brass, steel, genuine silver, genuine gold,  synthetic materials, hardwood, ebony, bone, horn. Special finishes are available such as enamelled hardware, studded hardware with Swaroski crystals or precious stones and gems.

Fine custom hardware makes your products stand out from the crowd

We specialize in exotic leathers

such as Nile crocodile leather, American alligator leather, Australian crocodile leather, python leather, lizard leather, ostrich leather, sting ray leather, fur.  Local fine tanneries offer exotic leathers in a vast range of finishes, from suede-like crocodile to hand painted python.  All exotic materials are purchased and processed in full accordance with International CITES laws and regulations.  All finished products for export are CITES certified.   Many of the finest exotic leathers are very hard to get because the available supply is purchased almost entirely by the biggest luxury brands.  We do however have access to good and consistent supplies thanks to our relationship with the tanneries.

We manage CITES certification for export

About new brands /startups

While we work primarily with established brands, we also welcome new brands and startup companies.  Often this means getting very much information across in order to begin production.  Technical information, pricing schemes, fashion schedule, business terms etc.  Now, as this is very time consuming and we are a small brokerage firm, we can only handle a small number of startup projects per year.  Also, not all leather accessories projects are suitable for being Made in Italy.  So please inquire with us with some details about your organization and project and we will get back to you with preliminary feedback.

We also offer consulting for beginning brands covering the following topics:

-scope and viability of project
-pricing and marketing strategy
-financial requirements
-manufacturing aspects, how the Made in Italy industry works,
prototyping, sampling, quantity production, shipping, logistics,
import duties, production scheduling
-collection designs evaluation
-materials: review of  leather and textile materials

-custom hardware, packaging
-things you have to know about exotic leather materials
-showrooms, boutiques, department stores, the Internet.
-Much more knowledge gathered during many years in manufacturing  luxury leather goods.

As you will be investing considerable amounts of time and money in your new project, we strongly recommend consulting with us prior to commencing your new fashion venture. It is in fact only too often that many, if not most, new brands fail for the lack of knowledge of the key elements in the fashion business. (As Murphy says: two years of trial and error will save you one hour of consulting with a professional!)
