In 1970, Sergio and Anna Terrida embarked on a new adventure and founded Terrida. Born into generations of knowledge of the antique artisan methods employed in the pelletteria of old, both Sergio and Anna would bring the art of crafting only the finest leathers into articles of beauty. With a strong foothold on expert craftsmanship and an eye for uniqueness, Sergio and Anna would instill their talents into their children, who years later would operate the company and bring their parents’ inspiration into fruition.
Through the years, Terrida has developed strong bonds with clients who want only the best quality. Terrida continues to provide leather goods, using the same traditional skills to form the most desirable, functional and fashionable articles available today. The family factory is located in Venice, Italy. This magical city lends inspiration to Monica and her brother Pierluigi, the children of Sergio and Anna Terrida, who have been proud to inherit not only a legacy that represents Italian determination for quality and perfection, but also the name Terrida, which has grown to signify a luxury unlike any other.
Having surrounded themselves in the family business since childhood, both Monica and Pierluigi have grown with the company with regard to innovation and model development. Monica is the Lead Designer and Pierluigi is the President.
Pierluigi and Patrick Gaccetta, his first cousin, joined together to form a new line of products made in the same fashion and style as all the fine handcrafted leathers items that Terrida produces. The Terrida Gun Collection, introduced in May 2010, is also manufactured in Venice, Italy but is based out of Jacksonville, Florida, USA. The products will concentrate on concealed carry bags of various sizes, shapes, and uses, utilizing the same fine calf leathers used on all other Terrida products.
All products are made from hand vegetable tanned leathers and assembled by hand with the fine Italian artisan skills passed down within the Terrida family.
