Company Summary

The founders and CEO's of GENOA Denim & Leather Apparel are Carmen Maendel and Traci Galles. GENOA was created as an outlet for people to have access to high-end designer apparel and handbags at below retail prices. It was in the Italian city of Genoa, Italy that denim first originated, so we named our company accordingly. We attend trade shows to enable our female clients to try on before purchasing our designer apparel and handbags.
