Craftsmen for 5 generations
Mary’s shop is a family run leather business based in Sorrento, Italy. We have been serving our customers for 5 generations. Starting as a tiny shop in one of the back streets of Sorrento, we have now expanded a lot and have 4 shops in the heart of Sorrento. Above is us now, from the top left: Nino De Martino, Giovanni De Martino, Maria De Martino (Nino's daughter), Nonna Maria (mother of Nino, Giovanni and Anna), Natthapong Mittha (Giovanni's son) and Anna De Martino.
The name of the company Mary's Shop (Mary) is a family name (Maria) which has been passed down through the generations in our family for hundreds of years. It turned from Maria to Mary as this was the "nickname" given to all the Maria's in our family.
That is how the Mary's shop name was created. De Martino (our brand name) is our family name. I'm sure you can tell by now that family is very important to us! We work hard together everyday to promote the beautiful Italian craftsmanship. We sell only products that are Made in Italy. For us the product's quality and our personal customer care are our number one priority. We would like you to leave our shops feeling part of our Italian (family and) heritage. We are happy to take our business further in this modern era and we are expanding now with our new online shop. This way we can reach all our customers, friends and family who don't have the possibility of visiting us here in Sorrento and spreading our quality and handmade products with the Made in Italy concept worldwide.
