About Us

Innovation. Functionality. Modernity. Since 1851, these three principles symbolise the enduring pioneer spirit of founder Carl Franz Bally – an ethos that continues to imbue this authentic Swiss brand with its visionary commitment to cutting-edge techniques and world-class craftsmanship. Over 160 years after Bally was founded, leather remains its medium and inspiration; a fine natural material that serves both functionality and creativity. Every product is a testament to Bally’s passion for perfection: the punctuation of a brogue; the soft touch of a bag’s leather; the classic silhouette of a sartorial jacket; the elegant contour of a Bally heel. Bally’s expertise and integrity have developed a culture of excellence that uplifts its collections to the status of artistic expressions. Today, Bally is the unique Swiss luxury brand.
