Art of Craftsmanship : Berluti

Berluti is a company that manufactures and retails a very exclusive luxury brand of shoes and boots solely for men. It is known for its unique leather finishing. It also makes and sells a line of leather goods such as belts, bags, and wallets with similar finish.
It is based in Paris on the rue Marbeuf. It was founded in 1895 by Italian Alessandro Berluti and is now helmed by his descendant, Olga Berluti. The LVMH group acquired Berluti in 1993. The brand has very limited distribution- in the US it can only be found at their New York store and five select Barneys New York locations, while in Europe it is limited to eight Berluti boutiques.

Past clients include Elizabeth Arden, Robert De Niro, Andy Warhol, and GĂ©rard Depardieu.
