Sciarada was established in 1977 in the largest leather-producing district of Tuscany. Since its first years, the company has specialized in the production of suede, successfully combining technological innovations with the great Tuscan tradition of craftsmanship. Sciarada produces quality types of suede for shoes, leather goods and clothing.


Unrelenting research in both technical innovation and style, combined with tradition: this is THEORIGINALSUEDE. We offer suede of all types, from the sporty look of our velour-style products to the elegance and shine of the classic suede models, with a vast range of colors and fashion proposals, renewed with every collection and which are now enriched with the new evolo®, the result of eight years of constant commitment to technological research for a better and more responsible future. An unbreakable bond between experience and modernity that makes Sciarada a hallmark of the suede manufacturing sector.


All the high quality suede world, barrel-dyed in pure aniline, the heartbeat of our collection: the wide range of available colours on our velour, on a wide range of thicknesses and sizes, our barrel-greased, the brilliance and the napped effect of our basic Softy/Sonia, contrasted to opaque and hair buffed effects, typical of the so-called English suede.

We have created a new exhibition space within the company, where we present our customers with a succession of our latest creations and the most current leather collections.

Given the ever-shortening production times of the fashion market, and thus the need for companies to quickly choose the materials that will make up their products, our showroom offers the opportunity to view our new proposals without having to wait for the industry fairs or public events in the sector.

Beside organizing open events on a regular basis, we are also available on an appointment basis to welcome our clients and show them all of our novel products.
