Our Story

Peretti Leather Group

A joint venture between Tiger Leather and Gruppo Peretti—one of the most prestigious tannery enterprises in all of Italy—Peretti Leather Group is the culmination of a partnership decades in the making. Spearheaded by Frank Toledano, president and CEO of Tiger Leather in Greensboro, NC, and Stefano Peretti, owner of Gruppo Peretti in Montebello, Italy, joint operations began in early 2023.

“Tiger Leather has been working with Stefano and the Peretti family since our inception over 20 years ago,” said Toledano. Gruppo Peretti has a long and distinguished history, and we look forward to growing our Hospitality and Contract lines of business as part of Peretti Leather Group.”

Peretti expressed similar sentiments. “For more than three generations, my family has crafted the finest Italian leather in the world. Many prominent fashion houses in Europe utilize our products, and we are excited to expand our offerings in the United States.”

Premium-Grade Hides

Whether sourcing leather from the great American plains or the English countryside, our hides are graded in the 97th percentile, the highest standard of quality within the rawhide industry. This superior craftsmanship and durability enables us to offer 600 in-stock articles and limitless custom capabilities to meet a broad range of performance and design criteria.

Inspired by Fashion

Our relationships within the Italian fashion industry afford us unique insight into seasonal color trends that are as reliable as they are chic. As such, both Tiger Leather and Gruppo Peretti are synonymous with high-fashion. From 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge to the Viceroy L’Ermitage Beverly Hills to the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, our leather is always en vogue.

Green-Tested, Eco Friendly

The environmental impact of leather is largely deterinmed by the leather crafting process. Our facilities are ISO 9001- and ISO 14001-certified, the highest certification available for responsible manufacturing. Add to that, our cleaning agents are water-soluble and adhere to the strictest sustainability standards in Europe.
