Raison D'être

For the past decade, Rina Sfalcin has dedicated her career to designing beautiful leather products. Getting her start in a 115-year-old family owned belt manufacturer in Montreal, she helped design and develop belts for luxury brands from around the world.

"I think people have lost touch of what truly fine quality looks and feels like. We've forgotten what top grain leather is like to hold and to own, and how it changes with the wearer over time. I expect a Sfalci belt to last with its wearer a lifetime, and then be handed down."

Applying her Nonna’s golden rule -- that is, cooking simply but using only the finest ingredients, and always adding love -- Rina makes her belts from what she considers to be the best leathers in the world, and she puts love into every, simple, understated detail.
