Our company history

How to start a real “Made in Italy” Company?
We do not know what the secret for the best world’s firms is, but Italian ones have one shared ingredient: love stories. Pellein has two great love stories to tell.
It was in the ’60s when a seven-year-old girl, Grimaldi Santina, fell in love with the groundbreaking fashion and design of that period, made of vivid colors and waisted silhouette. Her grandfather was a distinguished tailor from Mercato San Severino, renewed for his custom-made suits. He noticed her irreducible passion for this world and taught her the noble craft of sewing. With time, she became a skillful seamstress, and her parents signed her up at the international tailoring modeling academy, where she graduated. At that time, she met Giuseppe Pirolo, a young man who worked in the leather sector and developed a deep passion for this refined material. He later became her great love and future husband.
As time passed by, they realized their dream, binding their hearts, their passions, and enthusiasm: they founded a craft workshop specialized in leather clothing.
Unfortunately, as we all know, dreams don’t come true without facing challenges. The first obstacle was the lack of money, which forced them to set up their company in partnership with a friend. This partnership, though, did not end up well, so Giuseppe and Santina had to close their activity and start anew on their own. Later, a significant earthquake disrupted and devastated Irpinia. However, even this tragic event could not dishearten them, and, struggling through the wreckage, they finally founded their company.
Through time people started to appreciate their products, and their clothes, initially manufactured in a small Italian town, begin to travel all around Europe. Our products had extraordinary success in the best trade shows for leather clothing, like Paris, Frankfurt, and Barcellona, and they have been very successful since then. Our achievements are, on the one hand, the result of the quality of our production, sartorial excellence, the charming molding inspired and influenced by different eras, and elegance; and on the other, the precious teachings of Santina’s grandfather.

Who we are, The Pellein family

What's the secret to real Made in Italy quality?

The secret is a love story, a loving family, and beautiful traditions embraced by a strong passion. At Pellein, our strong passion is leather fashion and the will to hand down the beautiful traditions of Italian handicraft.

Solofra, the leather city

That's the title Solofra conquered. A city of 21km2 with a population of 12.419 citizens who made leather production its strength.
This culture originated in 1200. Thanks to its geographic location, Solofra was rich in stones for lime production, water, and chestnut trees containing tannins. Thus, tunning became the prime activity of our ancestors who handed down their noble art to the next generations. And today, it is still the cornerstone of our economy.

The word tannin was first used in 1796 to indicate a chemical substance found in vegetable extracts. Tannins combine with animal skin proteins in insoluble complexes, prevent rot by proteolytic enzymes, and transform it in to hide.
The richest sources of tannins are trees' cortex as oak, chestnut, spruce, and acacia, used in leather tanning.
