My name is Attilio Ercoli and I want to share this blog with you, with the goal of talking about news from the leather sector and its future. I would also like to receive your ideas and also resolve your doubts, answering to questions you will ask me. I promise you that I will always be available for any of your needs and will respond objectively and concretely.
But first I think it is necessary to spend a few words about me, in order to give you a general picture: I am Italian, I have been working in the leather and shoes business for 25 years, I lived 10 years in Leon, Mexico, a city that produces 130 million pairs of shoes per year, as general manager of one of the most important raw material companies for shoe manufacturers. After that I went back to “Bella Italia”, because I was missing food, people, art and Italian way of life … and I returned to the exotic leather trade. I speak english, french and spanish. Since 2008 I have always been in contact with high-end producers, brands and traders with a lot of information and vision; I go to visit them at home, traveling around Italy and abroad. I am in contact with many people from other cultures and I really like smart devices and information technology.
So I decided to merge my knowledge of skin, people, technology and languages in a website and blog to exchange information with people from all over the world, because I think this will be the new way of being in contact and because every day I will learn something new from you, people of the world wide web.
Today this process is ever stronger, because of the corona virus event will change our future habits, in all human activities. In these crazy days you can see how e-commerce, smart working and video conferencing are more used.
For this reason I will upload my entire world of leather goods to my website, available for all people looking for a special leather and to present a huge volume of offers of articles, from stocklot or from regular production on www.aworldofleather.it.
Using our search engine you will find the right skin you are looking for and you can request a quote.
Of course the following step must be physical, because we all like to touch, smell and feel the skin; so I send leather samples, I receive samples or send color cards or better yet I invite the customer to visit the warehouse or the tannery.
For me, these are the imperative words of this new era that we are facing; new globalization, information, big data (of the leather in our case), efficiency, solidity, low cost and communication.
We will see how everything will change at the end of this tremendous quarantine and expectation, so enjoy your work and be in contact!
Ask, ask, ask!
