Ariel’s Early Life
Before his career as a leather designer in Scottsdale, AZ, Ariel was born in Uzbekistan and started design school at age 16, which sparked his love for creating shoes. He began by learning the reconstruction of leather shoes and how to mesh his ideas into the designs. His time in school brought forth a creative spark that has gained him a reputation as an exceptional designer and craftsman.
After design school, Ariel served two years in the Russian military before forming his distribution center, producing products for multiple brands, and selling at wholesale. He was also huge in the music industry and made a name for himself by performing at weddings.
Ariel moved to the United States at age 35 and started his first-ever shoe and luggage repair business. He enjoyed eight beautiful years of repairing items and creating his designs at his shop in Long Island.
At age 43, Ariel and his family moved to Arizona and opened ARIELS SCOTTSDALE to provide leather repair, shoe repair, luggage repair, handbags, and handcrafted belts. Every single item is handmade by Ariel in-house with superior quality as the primary focus.
