Established in 1972, Pierotucci is an Italian leather workshop specializing in customized high quality leather bags, handbags, jackets and small leather goods such as gloves, wallets and belts. They are on the outskirts of Florence, Italy on the way into Chianti. Pierotucci is proud to be one of the few artisan workshops that offers the public a possibility to appreciate first hand the exquisite art of the Florentine tradition producing hand-crafted leather goods in their leather tours.
Pierotucci began as a small leather shop in the historical Florence center where the owner, Mr. Piero Tucci designed and manufactured varies types of leather goods with a group of highly trained leather craftsmen and women. These creations supplied several retailers and small shops serving the local and tourist shoppers in Florence. In the early 1980's, the distinctly elegant style of Pierotucci began to appeal to many high end private labels and the Pierotucci artisans started developing merchandise for famous designers such as Dunhill, Bally, Valentino Garavani, Fratelli Rossetti, Cole-Haan and Hugo Boss.
The Pierotucci workshop covers every aspect of the production from the cutting of the leather hides, as well as the sealing and buffing of the pattern pieces and the assembly of all components. This family owned business sources all of its material locally including the hardware elements used to decorate each of the bags and handbags. It is an easy process for them to customize hand drop, cross body straps, extra pockets or even change the color of the lining, stitching or the leather itself because each phase of the bag assembly takes place within the workshop.
Throughout this period, business continued to grow and in early 1990 Piero found himself responding to an even greater demand for his high quality leather goods. In 1994, the handiwork of Pierotucci became available to the general public through the opening of the Leather goods shop which was quickly proceeded by the Art & Jewelry Shop. In 2002 came the unveiling of Pierotucci.com which was designed to offer Pierotucci's quality leather goods throughout the world. There are three classic styles that embody Pierotucci.com collection:
Classic Pierotucci: For over thirty-five years the Classic Pierotucci collection has played an important role in the Italian high fashion world. Pierotucci's mission has been to refine old world techniques and create pieces that exceed mass-production quality in wallets, belts, gloves and jackets.
Royal Highness: First signature product line launched by Pierotucci in 1998, Royal Highness is a brand that brings together the highest quality materials with style like the name implies in a series of elegant business briefcases and ladies handbags. Royal Highness can be seen in retail stores all over Europe.
Toscanella: Recently launched, the Toscanella line is a collection of handbags, wallets, belts, briefcases, and various leather articles made with vegetable dyed Florentine Vacchetta leather. The idea behind Toscanella is to combine all the elements of Tuscany and its traditions and fuse them into today's fashion world.
As of 2011 two new styles now make up the collection available on line:
Campo dei Fiori: A pastel colored floral print on a soft and supple lambskin leather. This delicious and totally feminine collection of handbags and accessories consists of over 50 different models and styles.
Fortunata: The expert design of the leather tote bag has different carrying options which takes this leather cross body bag way ahead of its rivals. Hand made in a variety of different colours, each bag has a limited number produced and a tic tac toe signature logo display. The logo shows which number bag it is and how many were produced. What's in the name Fortunata? Fortunata means lucky in Italian. The “corno” or as it is known in English, the red hot chilli pepper, is supposed to ward off evil and assure the owner of lucky flair in all that they do.
As of 2013 the Pierotucci collection has expanded to include:
The Cuoio Collection features a line handmade leather accessories using an age old technique. A selection of coin purses, carrying cases for eyeglasses, business cards and cigars as well as several boxes with lids is a perfect addition to the Pierotucci tradition of fine leather goods.
