Alberto Olivero was founded in 2022 by the designer of the same name, an expert in design and car design, and sets its roots in Roero, an area of Piedmont that Unesco has chosen as one of a handful of World Heritage sites.

In Sommariva del Bosco, a town where the brand’s headquarters is based, Giandomenico Olivero, Alberto’s father, bought and saved in 2014 a leather goods factory founded in 1970.

Thanks to an intervention that recovers the wisdom of the local craftsmen and ennobles them, he entrusts them with some high-end craft projects. 

The manufacture becomes one of the flagships of the E.M.E. Group, an international reality known for cutting and stitching leather both in industrial sectors and in the more refined Made in Italy craftsmanship sector.

As this company has been producing excellent workmanship and extremely rare leather goods for the world’s most important brands, Alberto began to think about launching a unique brand in luxury leather goods, based on the decades of experience of local craftsmen.
