Brief History of our leather factory - A.R.Florence

A. R.Florence looks toward the future backed by typical Florentine artisan inheritance.

Founded in 1961, the company garnered its expertise and artistic skills from the first generation. At the beginning of the century, the grandparents of the actual owners had a workshop on the banks of the Arno River. Throughout the years, we have created thousands of models by interpreting and adapting the changing styles. One particular characteristic of the A.R. Florence production is the diversification which resulted in an enviable variety of articles being produced. Today these include over 30 types of cases for cigarettes and glasses, as well as, more than 100 different models of wallets for men and women. The company’s core product are change-purses that, together with cosmetics bags, offer some 200 different items. Recently, A.R. Florence has started producing a wide range of very elegant and reasonably priced leather handbags.

All the products are created with leather tanned in Italy, primarily from the area around Santa Croce, the traditional center of the Florentine leatherwork. The leather used is primarily calf and sheepskin, but we also use ostrich and lizard leather. We have been highly commended for many years for our specialty in producing the articles we offer in a wide variety of colors. We make multicolor leather articles which are very popular on the international market. Other factors in the company’s success are its flexible production and prompt customer service.

We produce our own brands as well as customized products for our clients. We are also flexible to adapt our own products, work on exclusives, and develop sample collections to offer great customer satisfaction.

A.R. Florence is attentive not only to the production quality but also to the distribution of our line. In fact, in 1986 it opened its own 300 square meter outlet in the historical center of Florence where the company’s products are also tested before they are offered to buyers.
