This whimsical little leather coin case is the perfect example of form meeting function. Its concave design is measured to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand as well as your pocket. The Toscanella coin purse with snap closure is made from vegetable tanned leather and is handmade at the Pierotucci Italian Leather Workshop in Florence Italy. Once the coin purse is open, your change pours safely out into the lid without falling out. You might mistake it for a modern day innovation but this coin holder is a replica of the original design that has been made by Florentines for centuries.
The origins of this leather accessory, in the Florentine jargon called a "tacco," can be traced back over 200 years ago with the monks from the Florence area. The Italian word "tacco," which literally means heel, refers most likely to the shape of the leather coin purse which can have an almost rectangular form with rounded edges or an almost totally circular form.
