At the turn of the 20th century, Filippo Della Valle, Diego’s grandfather, set up a small shoemaking workshop, pursuing the ancient profession with care and dedication. Driven by his passion for the work, Filippo refined his shoemaking business over time, elevating it to a level of excellence and passing his skills down to his children. These authentic codes of style and quality have since become essential assets for the Group and still characterise its DNA today.
Over the years, the TOD'S Group has expanded its production by launching and acquiring prestigious brands. But it has always stayed true to its original set of principles: unique, uncompromising quality. Under the guidance of Diego and Andrea Della Valle, this clear vision has enabled the Group to become a benchmark in the international luxury market.
By skilfully combining craftwork traditions with innovation, the TOD'S Group has become a key player in the production and distribution of luxury footwear, leather goods, clothing and accessories, a global ambassador for Italy’s deeply rooted manufacturing traditions, a symbol of the Italian lifestyle and of unparalleled quality.
