Where Leather Lives Again
The Santana brothers, Robert and Yury, grew up in Peru and learned secrets of the leather trade from their father as they watched him create and repair leather products beginning in 1973.
From Arturo the boys learned the ethos of “the business”, while learning the technical aspects of materials and the mystique of quality leather. They also learned to treat customers with high esteem while offering them great value for their cherished leather possessions.
In 2000, they decided to take their skills to New York City to practice and perfect their craft at a high-end leather repair company.
In 2008, after eight years in New York, Robert and Yury decided it was time to solidify Santana as a renowned name in the luxury leather care business. They moved to Raleigh and started a leather goods repair service company in a small rented space.
