Gio Marmora

I am a third generation leathercraft person. I have worked with leather since I was in elementary school. My aim is to provide my patrons with beautiful and durable creations that meet the highest standards of craftsmanship. My specialty is leather or mixed-media footwear that is attractive, resilient, supportive, and resoleable.


My family has been involved in the shoe business for four generations. When I was growing up in Jersey City, N.J. I had to help out from a very early age in my extended family’s various shoe businesses. My current studio is located on my grape and tree farm overlooking Seneca Lake in Hector, N.Y.

I also make belts, purses, pouches, back packs, wallets, journals and a host of small items like bracelets, key fobs and barrettes.
