Torino originated 45 years ago in New Orleans. It's business was built by supplying high quality leather and exotic skin belts to fine menswear specialty stores. Over the years, Torino grew and became the authority on handcrafted leather and exotic belts in the U.S.A. Torino's particular specialty is working with genuine American alligator. During the early 1970's, wild alligators were hunted to near extinction. As a result, they were placed on the "endangered species" list by state and federal wildlife officials. Torino supported the conservation efforts that were enacted to bring the alligator back. Today over 2,000,000 American alligators exist in the wild and they are no longer considered endangered. Hunting of the wild American alligator is strictly regulated by wildlife officials allowing only a two week season in September each year.
Torino's talented artisans and craftspeople 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.
