 It all began in 1945 with a goal and an ideal. Back then, founder and visionary Salvatore A. Leonardi Sr., took a risk to achieve his goal of the manufacturing of quality US made products, and to realize his lifelong ideal of continually improving the products and processes he offered through constant input from employees and feedback from clients.

He began with the manufacturing of metal frames for handbags, attaché cases, diaper bags, and brief cases. This primarily involved metal stamping, heat treating, plating and final assembling which was supported by Leonardi’s own in-house tool room.




Our years of experience allow our customers to select from the widest possible variety of styles and designs, always manufactured to the highest quality standards. Our quality controls inspections start with arrival of raw material from the mill and continue through final packing and shipment of the order.

The development of innovative frame solutions for pocketbooks, hand bags, and luggage was key to the growth of the company over the years. From its first full production of handbag frames, Leonardi has provided millions of framing solutions to world renowned companies such as Anne Klein, Dooney & Bourke, Donna Karen, and Coach. Still part of its product offerings, our frame solutions proved to be an integral solution for over 1,000 manufacturers over the past 70 years and are still valued today.
