WHO WE ARE

Altero Accessories and Co, established in 1986 in Thessaloniki Greece and first brand name was Altero Beltmakers. It was then that the handmade stitching on the vegetable leathers, the youthful calloused hands from the belt polishing, the metallic rail on the wooden dining table from the ‘60s steering the blade on the leather, the process of gently patting the leather dye, the waxes spreading to give the shine or maturation needed, all of this creates the scenery from the first handmade production in our workshop.

Almost thirty years later, Altero Accessories & Co is a modern high equipped company and continues to process leather and manufactures belts, straps, purses and various accessories by maintaining the philosophy of expertise, exclusivity and handmade products.

Specialized craftsmen realize fashion trends, but also designers’ suggestions in the clothing companies. They process leather using the latest machinery, while creating special designs with handmade touches, which makes our products unique. The company is bound by international health and safety standards and by the code of ethics and conduct.

The company’s highly developed design department combines harmoniously the colors of the leathers, the metallic equipment, the engravings, the pyrography on leathers, the maturations, the washings, the oxidation of metals in such a way that an exquisite result is achieved on leather accessories, which proves the company’s high aesthetics.
