Our Story

The Company
 
Avallone® specializes in handmade luxury leather goods. We are built on a foundation of strong work ethic, attention to detail, and a need for the highest quality leather products. Whether you’re a working professional looking for leather accessories or someone with a love for culture and travel, our original style and superior quality will help fullfill the everyday demands of your busy life.
 

We are based in Jersey City, New Jersey, and are here to enhance the urban business & travel lifestyle with experience from our Italian past. Founder Christopher J. Avallon is a third generation Italian American artisan & city dweller, with family roots originating in the Campania region of Italy. The original family name of Avallone was changed to Avallon during immigration to the United States in the early 1900’s. The rebirth of the Avallone name is an inspiration for all of our products, and a symbol of our simplistic, timeless designs that combine European style with modern function.

                           
The Products
 
Utilizing our own design process allows us to incorporate superior style and elegance bringing to light an original product tailored to meet the needs of any working professional or world traveler. Our specialty leather combinations & designs provide a unique, sophisticated look while maintaining timeless style and avoiding the quickly changing trends of fashion. Once designed, our leather products are handmade in carefully selected workshops by professional leather artisans. To insure every workshop continually meets and maintains our quality standards, we visit each location throughout the year and conduct an inspection. Part of that inspection includes checking the work room and every tool used for production, interviewing lead craftsmen to verify they are up to date on new innovations in the trade, and an observation of production from start to finish. 
 
From the material we use to the very last stitch, our products are built to last. Only the best quality leather is used and sourced from pre-qualified, thoroughly screened tanneries. Some of our most commonly used leathers include Italian Nappa Leather, Lamb Suede, and Full Grain Cowhide. It is through such scrutiny that we are able to maintain high standards, and deliver the best products to all of our customers. 
 

So, if you're looking to take your career to a new level, embark on a new adventure, or just sit back and enjoy the finer things in life, our products will be there with you along the way reminding you who you are, where you came from, and where you're going.
