Founded by Romano Conficconi in 1972 as a small workshop, Cierre was the first in the industry to incorporate the complete production cycle within its company from beginning to end. Backed by three generations of Conficconi family experience and with a philosophy based on the premise of "living in leather," each expertly upholstered furnishing is created using traditional methods by more than 130 contemporary artisans. Careful attention to detail is applied in every handmade-to-order piece.
