Anderson's Belts was founded by Carlo Valenti, 50 years ago in Parma, Northern Italy. Valenti was one of a long line of Parma leather workers. His factory (and the people who worked in it) quickly established a reputation for quality and craftsmanship. They developed new techniques and finishes, matched handcrafting with expert tooling, new technologies with the experienced eye.
A dedicated Anglophile, Valenti named his company after Anderson and Sheppard, his favoured Savile Row tailor.
