It has been many years (decades, in fact!) since I first stepped on Italian soil and despite many visits, it's still my favourite destination.
Work, fun, shopping, or just a relaxed holiday - it's all there... I love the art, history, the food (did I mention the pistachio gelato from Grom?), the opera, and of course, the clothes and bags... So no wonder I ended up in Florence when I started looking for high quality leather.
The Florentine tradition of working leather dates back into antiquity. Due to the proximity of the Arno river, providing the water necessary for tanning the leather, Florence and its surroundings became an important source of exceptionally soft and supple leather products that one associates with Italy.
Have a look at the selection of handmade Italian bags in SILKTOP in the leather Bags section - all done in the leather capital of the world, truly "Made in Italy".
