Our Story

Exclusive leather accessories, entirely handcrafted, thanks to a know-how coming from over 60 years of experience in the sector.

Sapaf was established in Florence in 1954 from a project developed by Silvano Calistri and his wife, Valdivia.

 

The business, family-owned since three generations, today is guided by Andrea Calistri and his wife Luciana with their sons Leonardo and Niccolò.

 

With a long tradition of leather goods and a history of export all over the world, today Sapaf has adopted a strategy to differentiate production, thanks to the collaboration with famous international names, the planning of the collection for Private Labels

and its own line under the label Sapaf Atelier 1954.
