Who We Are

Aquarian Leather is run by Ferruccio Sorichetti, aided by his daughter Jessica. They employ a small group of highly skilled people who help them make the luxury products Aquarian is known for in the North American leather business.

 

Ferruccio (everyone calls him Frank) learned how to make high-quality leather goods by hand many years ago. His teacher was his boss at the time, a man who had apprenticed at Herm├Ęs in France.

He showed Ferruccio how to use hand tools that have mostly been left behind in this part of the world.

He showed Ferruccio how important it was to understand the entire leather process, from the tanning to the cutting to the splitting to the sewing.

Ferruccio had previously learned how to make wallets the “North American” way, but his mentor opened up a whole new world to him that he grabbed hold of and turned into the business he runs today.

 

Jessica has been working by her father’s side for well over a decade now.

She shares the same passion for making high quality bags and other leather products that customers will cherish and use for the long-term.

 

 

It’s always a fun challenge to apply timeless design principles to something new. In this video, Ferruccio describes how he came up with the idea for an iPad case that looks and works like no other, and yet is true to the classics.
