Although the family business firmly loyal to its roots started its journey as a leather goods brand in 2013, it is based on a small gloves workshop owned by Master Dimitri, whose ound in Sisli district in 1962. His journeymen, who were trained by Dimitri, who studied glove making at the Paris Academy, the most famous leather glove artist of Istanbul in the 60s, formed the beginning of the traditional glove art of Altezzoso.
True art accepts no compromises. Altezzoso leather glove makers are proud of the fact they have never given in to the temptation of lowering the level of its quality even a little for the sake of increasing production, “what can be done by hand must not be done by machine”. Every product reflects this philosophy and reveals the intrinsic implication that the artist’s touch makes his work unique. Discover Eurasia's most prestigious leather glove brand.
