Leonica is a true family tannery with over 60 years of experience making high quality leather. Over these decades, the experience acquired has allowed Leonica to expand the range of articles for different market segments.

Today Leonica leather is selected by the most prestigious designers and brands for their creations both for leather goods and in particular hand bags, and exclusive furniture. Leonica is a proud supplier to high quality and exclusive fashion brands since many years and develops exclusive leathers guided by designers’ creativity.

Leonica is not only tradition and craftsmanship but also innovation and technical competence, characteristics necessary to be able to supply the business segment of transport and public spaces, which requires sustainable, durable upholstery, easy to clean and compliant with stringent safety regulations.

Today Leonica leather can be found both on board business jets and commercial airplanes, high-speed trains and commuter transport, on board coaches and tailor-made car interiors, in the cabins of cruise ships and on super yachts. The architects selected Leonica for prestigious lounges, theaters, auditoriums and luxury hotels.
