The company was founded by Carlo Valenti, 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. Parma in Northern Italy is known for the quality of its food and leather goods. And that quality is built on the same passions, skills and stubborn dedication to traditions worth defending. Steeped in those traditions, Anderson’s has been making belts in Parma—and nowhere else—for the last 50 years.
