Anderson's have been making belts in Parma Italy for 50 years. The company was founded by Carlo Valenti, one of a long line of Parma leather workers. His factory (and the people who worked it) quickly established a reputation for quality and craftsmanship. They developed new techniques and finishes, matched handcrafting with expert tooling and new technologies with the experienced eye. "To make the best belt requires perfect balance of the past, your skills and identity, your heritage, personality and procedures; your people and the tools they use; and the future. You have to improve and you have to improve for tomorrow. And that is pretty much what it takes to make the best of anything."
