AERISTO celebrates its 27 th anniversary supplying a worldwide network of discerning customers with the finest technical leathers available. Founded in 1991 to cater specifically to the corporate, private & VVIP aviation sector, AERISTO developed a niche market supplying leathers properly formulated in the tanning process to meet their customers’ stringent demands – without the need for any questionable, aftermarket applications.

Based in the heart of the Dallas / Ft. Worth Metroplex, AERISTO offers a vast quick ship program with thousands of hides in hundreds of colors ready for immediate, same day shipment. In addition to being a specialist in providing custom colors and leather articles, AERISTO has become the preferred source for technical leathers serving all industries that require materials to meet certain specifications – aviation, high end classic cars, yachts or the hospitality industry.

Since 2010 AERISTO has been operating its AeristoCraft division focusing on custom creations for bespoke interior applications. Services such as leather quilting for decorative seat inserts and side panels have become very popular with designers looking to create a sophisticated interior experience. Further services include custom leather perforating, leather embossing and debossing, laser etching services, embroidery, leather splitting and skiving as well as cut to pattern programs.
