Avallone, a Jersey City leather goods company with Italian roots, specializes in men's handmade leather accessories.
My name is Christopher Avallon, and I am the sole owner and founder of Avallone. We are built on a foundation of strong work ethic, attention to detail, and a need for the highest quality products. Whether you’re a working professional looking for leather accessories or someone with a love for adventure and travel, our original style and superior quality will help fulfill the everyday demands of your busy life.
We are based in the NYC Metro area, and are here to enrich American culture without losing touch with our Italian past. I am a third generation Italian American artisan with family roots originating in the Campania region of Italy. The original family name of Avallone was changed to Avallon during immigration to the United States in the early 1900’s. The rebirth of the Avallone name is an inspiration for all of our products, and reminds us that we, like all Americans, have come from a very diverse background. Our products represent this combination of background and current way of life that makes everyone unique.
My company is still in the beginning stages. We have a website, and a line out, but are still trying to expand into more products. As you can tell from our website, the product selection is very thin. I heard about Kickstarter through some of my associates and have decided to try it out. I like the idea of obtaining funding without giving up a portion of ownership in the company. So, what I am hoping to obtain from Kickstarter is funding that will allow my company to buy inventory for a product I designed called the "Executive Case", and another product we have in development called the "Executive Laptop Holder". All of the artisans and manufacturers that we use require a minimum amount of production in order to make our products. If we don't meet that minimum amount of production, our costs sky rocket, and we will be unable to sell each product at an affordable price to the consumer.
Designing is my passion, and I would like to be able to make this company a huge success. However, I cannot do it all by myself. I am looking forward to the help of the many members here on Kickstarter. With your support, the sky is the limit.
P.S. If anyone would like to email me personally, I can be reached at email@example.com.
