Leather Italia USA began in 1996 with 4 models sourced from the Tuscany region of Italy and was first presented at the April High Point Furniture Market in 1997. Initially, distributing and servicing North & South Carolina, the company grew quickly and within 8 months expanded into the neighboring states with 6 Sales Representatives. Volume grew allowing Leather Italia USA to start factoring which was the funding arm for financial growth. At the time Leather Italia USA had 2 warehouses in Wilmington, NC.
Today Leather Italia USA is looked upon as a national brand name and has partnered with many of the finest retail operations in the country. Leather Italia USA has received prestigious awards and been recognized from many organizations including Furniture Today and several top 100 retail chains. Leather Italia USA is also working with the UNC Hospital / UNC Burn Center to raise funds for medical research, awareness, and development. This is a partnership that Leather Italia USA is most proud of.
