Cromia comes from the long story of La.i.pe. S.p.a, a company founded in 1963 by Mr. Germano Sciamanna who, having experienced the leather handicrafts, decided to start this business in Tolentino, in the Marche region in Italy where there is a strong and ancient leather craft tradition.
Mr. Germano, man of great courage and enterprising spirit began producing small leather goods for the national market. Thanks to his great competence, he started good partnerships with the most important Italian and international fashion companies.
One of these was the collaboration with Gianni Versace, who in 1981, commissioned to La.i.pe. the production and distribution of women leather accessories.
This fundamental partnership is the starting point of the La.i.pe.’s growth, not just in figures, but above all in bringing in the company the expertise of the world fashion system.
The medley of colours and materials, quality and innovation allowed the company to become a recognized brand for Women who want to stand out from the crowd. alaSophie is pleased to offer our customers another winning italian brand.
