About Floto Imports
On average a Floto Imports leather bag will pass through 28 different work benches at our factory in Florence, Italy : cutting, skiving, gluing, sanding, painting, more sanding, more painting, internal assembly, hand stitching, riveting, machine sewing, hardware installation, zipper assembly - enough to make your head spin.
Along the way take pride in our work. We work hard but we also find time to laugh and appreciate life. We arrive at work early, but we take a long lunch and nap. We work into the evening and then drink wine and eat pasta for dinner. This is what it takes to produce a Floto bag; and this is the typical day at our factory.
Welcome to the Floto Imports family!
How It All Started
In 2003 Joe Floto quit a job on Wall Street to produce the highest quality leather bags possible at a fair price. Turns out, the formula worked - what started in a tiny West Village apartment has grown into one of the world's largest accessory brands on the web.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Every original Floto design is sketched at our Brooklyn, NY workshop and then assembled at our North Haven sample lab. Over the years we have built a "mini-factory" in Connecticut to provide warranty service and create new styles. The Floto Lab is where an idea goes from the drawing board to a prototype - each new style is cut and and assembled by hand before being sent to Italy for production.
The sewing and final assembly floor is where everything comes together to create an original Floto bag. From hand stitching, to machine sewing, to riveting, and zipper assembly - this is where the rubber meets the road. This is the heart of our Italian factory. This is our passion.
