TORRO was established in 2013 in Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East of England. TORRO are an independent, small business and we still operate from our HQ in Newcastle with an expert in house team. We pride ourselves on working with passion and care, specialising in creating premium functional lifestyle accessories for those who value quality, craftsmanship and design.
Why did we create TORRO?
TORRO was born from the desire to have premium, genuine leather cases with an accessible price tag. It seemed counter-intuitive to spend a lot of money on the latest smartphone and then cover it in a cheap plastic case.
We couldn’t find the phone cases we wanted, so we created them ourselves!
Following this initial success, TORRO continued to apply this approach to all forms of lifestyle accessories. The team studied the luxury designer accessory market where bags can cost thousands of pounds and wallets, hundreds. We believed it was entirely possible to replicated the attention to detail and luxury quality of the items and materials at a tenth of the price. We do this by operating direct to consumer and the brand grows by word of mouth rather than expensive advertising allowing luxury designer quality to be accessible to those who share our values.
Our Core Values
We believe in quality goods made from premium materials which will stand the test of time. The TORRO team are design focused and inspired by timeless, classic style. We make products, we want to use ourselves, which solve real problems for a stylish, organised lifestyle.
The team mantra at TORRO is “The difference is in the detail” - it’s even written on the walls of our offices. Our mission is to create timeless, stylish classic products with innovative and functional design.
Why buy from TORRO?
We only use the best Top Grain Aniline and Semi Aniline cowhide leathers, sourced from the finest USA tanneries, which undergo minimal treatments to preserve the natural properties and appearance.
Every TORRO product goes through a rigorous quality control inspection by our in-house experts before dispatch to ensure you get the best product possible.
Our leathers are certified by Eurofins | BLC Leather Technology Centre and comply with British & European specifications.
Starting with a single product, TORRO expanded rapidly, and we have now shipped our millionth order. We remain an organically grown, independent company who are able to keep prices accessible by cutting out the middleman and shipping directly to you without any retail or distribution margins.
