HISTORY

 

At Pietro, tradition never goes out of style. Since 1982, Pietro has been delivering quality and precision from the heart of New York City under the direction of leather craftsman Pierre Dabagh and his son Alex. Every bag that leaves the factory passes through the family’s hands, a reflection of their love for the art and dedication to quality.

 

Each Pietro piece is handcrafted with the utmost attention to detail, beginning with genuine Italian leather hand-selected by Pierre before every new collection. As one of the last standing factories in New York’s Garment District, Pietro makes every step of the production process count — from the number of stitches to the finishing of the edges.


 

TODAY

 

Today, Pietro is designing classic handbag styles with an updated New York City twist. Pietro bags are made for the woman on-the-go, with the latest silhouettes and versatile functionality. With the city as their muse, Pietro is keeping tradition alive one handbag at a time.

Pietro Handbags: Carrying a legacy

 

Pierre opened a handbag factory after immigrating to America. Decades later, when stores and little boutiques that were buying from them started going out of business, his son Alex learned to use digital tools to reach customers online.

OUR STORY
JANUARY 20th, 2022 marks our 40 Year Anniversary of PIETRO NYC. In 1982, Pierre Dabagh had dream of creating a brand and turning it from nothing to something. In 1976, he immigrated into the United States from Beirut, Lebanon and worked at a small leather factory to make a living. He worked day and night to support himself and his family. 10 years later, he opened PIETRO NYC. Today, Pietro NYC stands as one of the last standing factories in New York City. Pierre's dreams have turned into reality and he is the true epitome of the American Dream. 40 years later, Pierre and his children run Park Avenue International, making handbags and leather goods for some of the top designers in the industry. Let's continue this journey of creating highly crafted handbags in the heart of New York City! We are grateful for all the continued love and support. With gratitude, THE PIETRO NYC FAMILY
