About us

Dias Ruivo has been perfecting the art of leather making for over eight decades. The company remains a family business to date, proud of having a hard-working and skilled team of craftsmen. 

Using sustainable technology and methods, we commit to providing the highest quality materials in short lead times, to supply the industries of footwear, leather goods and furniture. 

Our innovative designs are exhibited every season at the international shows of Lineapelle Milan, Lineapelle New York, Premiere Vision Paris and APLF Hong Kong.

Since 1936

The first records of the brand Dias Ruivo date back to the year 1936, when the oldest production formulas were still written by the hand of the current owners’ father, António Pereira Dias da Silva.

Nowadays the company is run by Manuel Dias and his sister Maria Dias, who were born and raised just next door to the tannery. Their intricate knowledge of the production process is one of the assets that set Dias Ruivo apart from other European tanneries.

Vision and Values

Decades of research and development in leather give us the know-how and confidence to take on the most challenging technical projects. We owe the quality and originality of our creations to a strong multidisciplinary team who commits to ensuring the loyalty of our clients at home and abroad.

We believe in the importance of working side by side with designers and trendsetters, which is why we make a point in attending the leading fashion shows and leather shows in the world. 

From our point of view, being at the forefront of innovation implies working towards a sustainable future. Despite the technical obstacles we face everyday, our major goal is to achieve sustainable eficiency in all our business practices.

The leather produced by Dias Ruivo is known to carry a distinctive mark: our most bizarre articles of the season tend to become classic bestsellers in 20 years’ time.
