jacket“Wow! Just like the best stores in Italy!”

This was just one of the compliments Carlos Solis and Zhen Wang received when they opened Pelletteria Italian Leather Boutique in Old Pasadena. And the source would know– he was a true-born Italian!

Pelletteria carries bags, shoes, jackets, and other leather goods made by some of Italy’s finest leather craftsmen. In fact, these craftsmen are the same producers and manufacturers for luxury goods such as Gucci. No wonder, Pasadenans couldn’t help but marvel at this boutique store!

“It has been a very exhilarating experience because, while we spent a lot of time and effort in putting the store together, we did not know how people were going to react and we were so pleased with it,” said Solis. “Everybody was so pleased with the products. ‘Ooh’s and ahh’s’ were the common reaction to everything that we did.”

Solis looked back at the opening day and told us about their encounter with their first customer. “We were still putting up merchandise then. But at 2:45 in the morning, a gentleman walked in and said, ‘Oh, you have a new store.’ And I said, ‘Well, yes. And we’ll be open later this morning at 11:00 a.m.’”

The gentleman looked around, liked what he saw, and purchased a scarf from the store. Yep—Pelletteria’s first sale happened at 3 o’clock in the morning before they even officially opened.

Zhen believes that their products are flying off the shelves because of their excellent quality. “The women like our colorful bags and the well-made shoes very much,” she said.

Head over to the store and see for yourself.
