BELCORI® – beauty & beyond
Belcori, the name comes from the latin words Corium (Ko.ri.ium) and Bellus (Bel.lus), meaning beautiful leather in Latin. Beyond relates to our respect for the environment.
Belcori is a new Dutch online leather brand with boutique quality, owned by a young Dutch/ Swedish entrepreneur Joachim Delfortrie with a vision and focus on sustainable Handmade Luxury Leather Goods without Luxury Markups.
Our crowdsourcing / crowdfunding business model is a radical change from the traditional luxury leather brands and retail trade with their absurd high margins.
Consumer- direct, no brick and mortar stores, no middlemen. We pass the savings directly on to you, with deliveries straight from the skilled artisans hands, head, heart and soul to your doorstep.
We create value our eco- conscious customers are looking for : natural – materials, ethically – made, environmental- friendly and fairly – traded.
Belcori wants to be at the forefront of The New Elux Fashion Era with respect for people and planet which is part of our European tradition and heritage.
We make our products exclusively in Spain and Portugal in the same artisan factories as Europe’s most prestigious leather brands, including some Italian. The cost structure in these countries is lower than Italy with the same level of leather craftsmanship, known to insiders. The Spanish/ Portuguese expertise in leather tanning and manufacturing, instead of marketing, make these factories ideal subcontractors for well known big brands. Their skills have been developed over centuries from father to son, all the way back to the occupation by the Moors in year 711!
Belcori’s products are handmade less & slow. Less in stead of luxury mass- production, slow to guarantee the European quality a Belcori product deserves. Belcori, sustainable slow leather fashion in bags and accessories; handmade to order one at -a- time with zero waste.
