Needles, awls, hammers, pliers and hole punches. It only takes a glance to see that this laboratory is run by experts who really know all the secrets of leathercraft. All their creations – belts, wallets, bucket bags, laptop cases - are cut by Paolo Fattori and sewn by his wife Luisa, using exclusively leathers tanned with plant products, with their graining and striation effects obtained either naturally or after a long drying: “every product leaving my shop is unique in two ways: for the leather used and the craftsmanship. Then it becomes unique in a third way - use turns the leather from opaque to shining.”
Monday to Saturday from 9.30 am to 7 pm.
