Founded in 1908 by Umberto Carradori, Pelletteria Pratese has longstanding experience in the leather industry. Artisan expertise has been passed down from father to son, up to the current third generation, formed by the brother-team of Corrado and Emilio Carradori, who now run the family business together with a team of skilled staff, producing top quality belts and other leather accessories. Attention to detail starts with the selection of materials, continues with an accurate quality control during each production phase, and ends with precision finishing. The company’s pride is its production of curved belts. Pelletteria Pratese collaborates with the client at various stages: from the study and creation of the models to the research of materials for the production of customized belts. Production is currently divided into three lines.
The tailored line employs the best Italian, French and English leathers and sets itself apart for its classic and sober elegance or for special processes that give life to casual yet classy belts. The saddlery line exalts leather quality thanks to almost completelymanual processing. Instead, the refined line uses top quality real reptile skins, including python, Nile crocodile, and alligator. Furthermore, the company also produces a range of leather accessories such as various types of men and women’s bracelets, round belt boxes, or leather bottle carriers that hold three bottles of wine.
