THE "JO PETERS" COLLECTION HAS THE DUAL MISSION OF DESIGNING THE MOST BEAUTIFULLY CONSTRUCTED , AND FASHION FORWARD LEATHER, SUEDE, AND FUR PIECES, AND MAKING THEM ATTAINABLE TO A BROAD SCOPE OF FASHIONISTAS, WORLDWIDE.
For years, European leathers and furs have been thought to be only for the elite, mature and the very wealthy. The JO PETERS brand houses one of the most fashion aware "niche- leather" collections, but has managed to make the prices approachable to a broader scope of clients.
Originally educated in Architecture and Interior design, Joan ran a successful architecture firm in New York for years, but her passion and love of Leathers and Furs never waned. After many years of traveling to Greece, Joan decided that she wanted to design a collection of leathers and furs, and wanted to move to Greece to immerse herself in the design and production of her own collection. The JO PETERS collection was borne.
Today, Joan divides her time between Mykonos, Athens and the town of Kastoria, home to the most fine Leather and Fur factories in the world, as well as New York City,
