Tod’s is the story of three generations of style and good taste, beginning in early 1900 as a small shoe factory started by Diego Della Valle’s grandfather, Filippo, in Casette D’Ete (Ascoli Piceno). In the 1970s, Diego Della Valle expanded his family’s business and retained the handmade manufacturing process—producing high-quality shoes and leather goods with styles that have become icons of modern living.
Tod’s first received worldwide recognition in late 1970 with the creation of the “Gommini” driving shoe, identified by 133 pebbles on the sole. The introduction of the Tod’s handbag collection in 1997 reflected the spirit, quality and design of the Tod’s shoe collection and catapulted the brand into what is now known as one of the most successful companies in the world of luxury accessories.
All Tod’s products are entirely hand-crafted in Italy with highly skilled techniques—a peculiarity that distinguishes the brand and attracts customers who appreciate true Italian craftsmanship.
