About Leather Italia

Our Story

Founded in 1989, Leather Italia is a division of Calia Maddelena Group, a pioneer in the field of leather sofa distribution in Italy. Hagop Malhasian the founder of Calia Maddalena began his operation in a small 1200 sq. office with just 3 employees; Nicola, Antonio and Peppino. From its humble beginning the company gradually grew as its quality and sheer commitment to provide ultimate customer satisfaction successfully managed to make a special place in its client’s hearts. Even when, in the later years, the Italian Sofa market boomed with much higher demand and subsequently more leather sofa factories and distributors, Calia Maddalna soared and became an industry leader, exporting more than 8600 sofas per year and supplying the Italian Market with 4000 sofas on yearly basis.
