Our History

Our family has a long tradition in tanning.

My great grandfather John was born in Chios Island in 1850 and moved to Istanbul where he started dealing with tanning.

​In 1973, his son Stephen Patounas, founded a small industry for leather in the center of Athens.

​Throughout the century, techniques in leather manufacturing transmitted from generation to generation while technological equipment became modern.

​Today, the company plays a very important role in the Greek fashion market.

My Commitment

​As a successor of this tradition,

my expectation is to propose new fashion trends by creating a new brand, called “Womano”.

A brand dedicated solely to fine leather bags and shoes. I collaborate with the most experienced Greek specialists for my creations, after researching the fashion trends in Greece and Internationally. My family’s tradition and experience for over two centuries, guarantees designs of unique handcrafted pieces that complete the look of a stylish and elegant woman.
