Year Established: 1981
Our wallets are produced in a small workshop interestingly located at the ground floor of an old building in the center of Milan (20km from our base). There, for the last 35 years, Flavio and his wife have worked magic on their leather to hand craft beautiful wallets and handbags. In particular, Flavio is one of the few artisans around able to manufacture the upholstered fabric wallets that we love so much in a way that they are as durable as they are stylish.
Flavio’s workshop is a tale of love and passion. Despite being well in their seventies, Flavio and his wife could make even the most adorable couple blush. They walk hand in hand to work every morning and can often be heard singing while working. Needless to say, their charming workshop is our favorite to visit! The passion for one another is only matched by the passion for their craft. They still take care of the entire production with the sole help of one employee and, to our great advantage, they have no intention of retiring.
As for all our products, the making of our wallets starts from superior materials, such as selected tanned leather and fabric treated to be resistant to water and continuous rubbing. Using our exclusive patterns, Flavio first cuts all the leather parts by hand and then, with particular attention to the edges, presses these cuts until they are thin enough to be properly folded and stitched. To make our fabric wallets, before moving on to the next step, Flavio heat-seals the fabric to the outside leather using a technique that, despite our persistence, he’s never willing to share but that guarantees the best results in terms of durability and appearance. Once all the parts are ready, they are carefully glued and stitched together to create our colourful and stylish wallets.
