Fine leather belt straps Meticulously hand-sewn in Milan


Globally venerated as the Italian capital of fashion and design, Milan boasts an equally impressive reputation for leather-working. The world’s buyers are proud to source their luggage, belts, shoes and even furniture from Milan’s international-calibre craftsmen, and within this tradition there is particular expertise in making fine reptile leather accessories. Such status derives from a group of leather-workers whose skills have become world famous.


Foremost among these, specialising since 1967 in the highest-quality fashion accessories made from crocodile, alligator and lizard skins, David Oldani’s laboratorio embodies perfect Italian style founded on Milan’s finest manufacturing artistry: the perfect partner for Valde’s own guiding principles of beautiful, ethical design.
