American Tanning & Leather (Amtan, USA) and Whiteline (Italy) have announced a partnership with Compagnie des Tanneurs in France and, specifically, a new showroom in Paris, located only 500m from the famous Arc de Triomphe.

Amtan and Whiteline are tanners of alligator and crocodile in the U.S. and Italy. The tanneries are located in Griffin, Georgia (U.S.) and Santa Croce, Italy. Whiteline has sales offices in Milan and Bologna. Both companies have a combined experience in alligator and crocodile skins of more than 40 years and 4 generations, and service luxury fashion markets with clients such as Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Prada, Armani, Tom Ford, and Chanel.

Compagnie des Tanneurs (CDT)

Compagnie des Tanneurs is owned by Igor Chamakoff. As a 4th Generation leather dealer, he has worked in the leather industry since he was 17 years old. Compagnie de Tanneurs employs 13 people and has three locations: Lyon, Cholet (close to Nantes), and Paris, where it provides customers with a full range of leathers for the luxury and fashion market.

Paris Showroom

Amtan, Whiteline, and CDT have also announced the addition of Martina Sinicropi to their Paris team, who  brings nine years of luxury fashion industry experience and a strong familiarity with the exotic leather market. As the manager of the Paris showroom, Martina will serve as the alligator and crocodile leather specialist as well as assisting with the overall marketing for the company in France.

A graduate of the Politecnico di Torino and a native of Italy, she moved to Paris after living all over the world  including the U.S., the UK and Poland to pursue her dream of working in fashion.

Her love of luxury products and the arts led her to the pinnacle of the supply chain for the fashion industry, the exotic leather market. She speaks four languages; English, Italian, French, and Spanish,  and will be a valuable asset to the team. The showroom in Paris is opened daily, with viewings by appointment to view the leathers from Amtan, Whiteline, and CDT.
