About IAS

About IAS

International Advisory Service (IAS) has over 75 years of experience serving the leather goods & hardware industries.

We are experts in developing Custom Hardware that caters to the high end, “quality made” handbag and accessory industry. We have offices in Massachusetts, Hong Kong and our own manufacturing facility in China. We help companies design, develop and create custom hardware products. We manufacture in low-lead solid brass as well as produce in zinc, stainless steel, iron, and other metals.

Our family has been in the leather and accessory trade even before the founding of IAS in 1945. We have advised and produced hardware across the decades for international companies around the globe while remaining a family company.

IAS provides a full “value-added” solution by assisting at all levels of the development process, from our in-stock hardware to producing customized items including buckles, closures, fittings, locks, zipper pulls and logo plates. We work with our customers through the entire process to create a product that works best for their business.

We get our name because we advise and consult with our customers every step of the way. We will start by discussing your needs and sharing our knowledge and experience specific to your goals. We have developed thousands of unique hardware items over the years and are confident that whatever you present, we can solve.
