Who we are?

Astero Leathers was officially founded in 1991 by Astero and Ioannis, a typical Cypriot family business. As with many Cypriots, Immigration abroad was essential to survival after the harsh years after the 1974 invasion. The operation started in 1985 when they returned from their international ventures and Ioannis set up a small leather processing factory, which manufactured in small-scale leather products for the wholesale market. 

In 1991 Astero brilliantly opened a sewing factory in Nicosia to add value to the manufactured goods, again for the wholesale market. As time passed, more and more people requested Made to Measure leather jackets and accessories which naturally moved the business closer to the retail market it is today.

The company is currently run by the same people that found it, with experience in the whole supply chain, from processing to manufacturing and retail sales. Astero Leathers also imports fur products and still maintains the sewing factory with 3 employees to continue the successful Made to Measure business. In the later years of the 2000’s the company invested in leather care products and leather good restoration.
