Our
History

With passion, for over 150 years

in Naples since 1865

Tramontano draws its origins from the ancient Neapolitan tradition of hide and leather manufacturing. It’s a history of art, creativity and inspiration that, since more than a century, makes every Tramontano product unique, present beyond fashion.

The evolution of the brand is comparable to a long journey through the production of luxury bags, suitcases and accessories that winds through time, up to present days, tracing a path in the name of craftsmanship knowledge, research and style. It’s a brand that constantly evolves, managing to balance the historical values of tradition with contemporaneity, creating a link between past and present.
From the start, its sophisticated clientele, seeking for exclusivity, has been fascinated by its products and the touch of distinction that they assure.

Knowledge, Creativity and Prestige

The Origin of the Tramontano Logo

The graphic line of the Tramontano brand is once again a symbol of art, creativity and tradition.
It’s the representation of two marine animals, the manatee and the dugong, great mysterious mammals, unique and rare, now endangered, that have been living in the Mediterranean up to the 18th century.
It is believed that the vision of these animals that while swimming rise from the sea, has given life to the myth of the sirens and to other legends from the Greco-Roman age.
These symbols of enchantment, of history, of fascinating unicity, have inspired famous artists that in Naples have made monumental fountains like Fontana del Sebeto and Fontana dell’Immacolatella.
Hence, the brand Tramontano, with its strong emotional impact, is regarded as a witness to tradition, creativity and art as well as its products; amplified by that “Panorama”, recognizable and recognized as iconographic image of the company, that once again witnesses the tight link between the Mediterranean culture and the brand.

The Panorama image, on the contrary, comes from the graphic line that represents the Vesuvio overlooking the Gulf of Naples, woven on the linings of the first Tramontano creations. In the seventies, inspired by the illustrations of one of the most important designers of the twentieth century, the artist Saul Steinberg, and particularly by the work “View of the world from 9th avenue” that became the cover of the New Yorker in March 1976, Aldo Tramontano designs “his Gulf of Naples” that, starting from Via Caracciolo, overlooks the whole Mediterranean. Among tritons and sirens, it shows Greece, Turkey, Ibiza, and Sicily, along with Capri, and Procida.
