Peyrano: Turin's Chocolate Artisans

The uniqueness of Italian culture lies in the artisanal tradition encompassing all fields. From arts to lifestyle, from fashion to haute cuisine: Italy has proven that dedication to the highest standards of artistry, combined with a rich cultural heritage, results in a timeless output regardless of the discipline. Italian chocolate is an exemplary case of this yearning for perfection.

For centuries, Turin has been the main Italian hub of chocolate-making, home for both large industries and small handcrafted chocolate companies alike. Traditionally, this beautiful city in the northeast is where Italian master chocolatiers reproduce and expand the traditional delicacies of the region.

The city owes its rich chocolate history to a few Torinese families who, generation after generation, passed on the knowledge and artistry of handcrafted chocolate. The Peyrano family embodies a chocolate legacy defined by quality, passion, and Italian tradition.

Sometimes, a leather belt can enliven your style like nothing else: a garment that will enhance the quality of any outfit and that you'll love wearing for years to come.

Leather belts of the highest quality ensure durability and uniqueness for your everyday wardrobe. They hold their shape nicely and adapt easily, becoming more comfortable over time and providing a stylish look even after countless uses.

They’re also highly versatile garments that fit perfectly with both casual and formal attires. You won’t need a plethora of belts, as long as you own a few in neutral colours to put on that will work on any occasion.

Today we’ll look into what makes our handcrafted leather belts unique and why they’re the ultimate choice to enhance all kinds of styles.

The History of Chocolate in Turin

The history of chocolate in Turin goes back to the 16th century when Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy served a symbolic cup of hot chocolate to the city to celebrate the transfer of the Ducal capital from Chambéry to Turin.

In 1678, Turin received its first official licence to produce chocolate, and since then, the Piedmont region has been the leading centre for chocolate production in Italy. One of the most popular local drinks was conceived shortly after: the Bicerin, a delicious mix of hot coffee, cacao, and milk cream that you can still enjoy in all the city’s cafes.

In the 17th century, the chocolate maestros of Turin learnt how to make chocolate solid, hence laying the foundation for the wide variety of delicacies you can find everywhere in the city, including the authentic gianduiotto, cremino, and pralines.


Peyrano: The Family

The Peyrano Family is the leader in artisan chocolate production. They have maintained the link with tradition, celebrating the cultural heritage of the precursory master chocolatiers while always looking for new ways of enjoying chocolate.

Antonio Peyrano, together with his sister Lucia, started producing chocolate in 1920 in a small workshop in Corso Moncalieri 47, where the laboratory still is today. In 1938, to reward the excellent quality of their products, Vittorio Emanuele III made the chocolate factory the official “Supplier to the Royal House of Savoy”.

In the 1950s, the family started combining chocolate with local walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds to add further variety to their selection of premium delicacies. These new pralines spread quickly across Italy and beyond, making Peyrano chocolate pivotal in the increasing popularity of Piedmontese chocolate throughout the 20th century.

Turin contains multitudes: a city that’s both industrial and artistic, ancient and modern, an amazing place of history and beauty where you can experience the authentic Italian lifestyle at its absolute best.

Torino is the northernmost major city in Italy, facing the majestic Alps and constantly caressed by its breeze. Yet, the city feels Mediterranean, with an atmosphere reminiscent of a southern flair that couldn't be more different from the hectic, metropolitan style of nearby Milan.

Nestled between the Po River and the Alps, Turin was a major national and European political centre for centuries. It was the first capital of unified Italy (the Kingdom of Italy), and the then-governing House of Savoy built majestic palaces and a modern infrastructure to celebrate the city’s importance.

Like most Italian cities, Turin went through a series of significant historical changes that determined its architecture and aura. It was one of the country's first and most industrialised cities between the end of the 19th century and the early 20th century; together with Milan, Turin and its industry laid the foundations for the post-war Italian miracolo industriale: it is, to this day, a crucial crossroad for industry, commerce, and trade.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your next trip to Turin, here's what you can do in 24 hours in one of the most beautiful Italian cities.

Peyrano: The Chocolate

The chocolate tradition of Turin lives within the walls of Corso Moncalieri 47, where century-old recipes and new flavourful varieties come to life every day. The authentic giandujotto, alpino and cremino are only a few of the over eighty chocolate varieties you can find in this iconic laboratory or Peyrano’s elegant boxes with assorted pralines.

Peyrano’s attention to detail, artisanal heritage and fresh approach to the art of chocolate make this laboratory one of a kind: the embodiment of the passion and love this city puts into everything that defines it.

Our calf leather belts are the embodiment of timeless charm: built from full-grain vegetable tanned leather from Santa Croce. They will only get better with age and will last a lifetime, enriching your wardrobe and heightening the elegance of your formal outfits, but will also enhance your jeans and everyday style. The nubuck leather at the back of the belt adds a touch of understated luxury that won’t go unnoticed.

The calf leather offers the best durability and quality that will stand the test of time. Our reversible calf leather belts are essentially two belts in one, becoming the ideal choice for travellers also thanks to the luxury dust bag to store it.



Cashmere & Cioccolato

Whether you’re visiting Peyrano’s boutique or enjoying their delicacies with family and friends, you’ll need an outfit that lives up to Peyrano’s premium chocolates. Luca Faloni’s cashmere represents the pinnacle of luxurious outerwear from Autumn to Spring and is the ideal companion for fine Italian treats.

Elegant, slim-fit, wrinkle-resistant, and timeless: for decades, chino pants have been an integral part of a man’s wardrobe thanks to their unique versatility and durability. This year, Luca Faloni reinterpreted chinos by adding a modern touch to a classic design, enriched by the traditional approach and attention to details typical of the Italian craftsmanship our garments radiate. The result is our new cotton twill winter chino: Cortina.

Cortina features a medium thickness, cotton twill gabardine, ideal for the colder seasons and giving a unique silky, luxurious feel on your skin. We decided to name our latest chinos Cortina to celebrate the iconic history and lifestyle of Italy’s most charming alpine town, famous for it’s apres ski.

This article will look into the history of this fascinating fabric and how our Cortina chinos are made.

Today we’ll look into what makes our handcrafted leather belts unique and why they’re the ultimate choice to enhance all kinds of styles.

The gabardine fabric our Cortina chinos are made of is a tightly woven warp-faced twill weave fabric. A firm and durable material, gabardine was created in the late 1800s by Thomas Burberry, the founder of Burberry, who wanted to create a new, versatile blend for his creations.

At first, gabardine became popular because it can hold its shape and does not wrinkle easily. When it started being waterproofed with lanolin, it also became a must-have for travellers and explorers worldwide. Today gabardine is a versatile and exceptional fabric for suits and casualwear and is often used to make chinos or pants that can stand the test of time.

Our gabardine fabric is crafted in Northern Italy from high-quality cotton twill and blended with 3% elastane to improve the garment’s comfort and durability. They’ll seamlessly adapt to your shape, and thanks to the thoughtful details and luxurious feel on your skin, they may well become your go-to chinos in any smart-casual situation.

How we make the Cortina chinos

Italian Design

In our Italian laboratories, we have reimagined this timeless classic by adding a modern touch and subtle details to bring exquisite garments to life.

With Cortina, this traditional process results in a contemporary garment with a practical and versatile design that will fit most autumn to spring outfits.

Cutting and Tailoring

Cloth cutting is made with machines to obtain the highest level of precision. After cutting the cloth, the Italian laboratories move on to tailoring, where the attention to details, fabric quality and traditional craftsmanship really come into play.
Cortina features internal double seams to ensure outstanding durability over time. The inner belt has embossed stitching, which will maintain the shirt tucked in more easily. The reinforcement in the bar tacks is visible on all pockets, giving further strength to a garment that's both elegant and highly sturdy.
The Cortina design keeps secure with a triple horn button closure and the inside button is hand stitched by artisans to ensure greater durability.

Dyeing & Quality Check

The pants are then dyed using a 'Tinto Capo' process resulting in a natural harmonious colour throughout. Additionally, dying the garment at the end ensures that the trousers won't shrink after the first wash.

The final stage to bring the Cortina chinos to life involves ironing the pants, first using machinery and then by hands. As it's the tradition in the oldest Italian mills, each garment is meticulously checked by expert artisans in all its details, from size to stitching, ensuring the quality and durability of the Cortina pants are in line with the excellent quality our garments always display.
