So, since 2010, counting thirty years of sewing and embroidery experience, Sartoria Melina is creating uniquely beautiful, exquisitely crafted bespoke leather garments for the most discerning clients, specializing in jackets and coats, made with finest hides and exotic leathers. Each piece is a true testament of top level craftsmanship.
