*About Italian brands
Most Italian designer handbag factories consist of a handful of people, often multi-generation families, specializing in the art of handbag making. Such Italian manufacturers are not over "commercialized", and they give great importance to maximum quality and styling of their products. Their bags are meant to be used, admired, and they will last for years. They are simply beautiful pieces of artwork!
Leather bags produced by such Italian companies are hand-made and only available in a very limited quantity.
Our well-established personal and business relationships in Italy allow us to source and deliver to you these special products. The limited production also ensures our customers an element of exclusivity with every purchase. However, once sold out, they are sold out forever… If you cannot find something that you saw on our web site previously, chances are you have missed out, and that item is gone for good.
