The Toscanella Concept
the essence of Tuscany
The concept behind Toscanella Collection of leather goods was to incorporate the demands of today’s world with the tradition and love that the city of Florence has always had for leather work. Starting with rich earthy colors, quality craftsmanship and versatile & practical designs the Toscanella line began to take shape, and over the years has grown to incorporate over 200 different models between wallets, accessories, totes, briefcases and handbags.
What distinguishes Toscanella from other brands?
The Pierotucci strategy of a quality product is the cornerstone of the Toscanella Collection. Selecting only the best raw material for the artisans for their craft.
The leather: made from vegetable tanned leather, which lends itself to constant use. The inherent qualities of vegetable tanned leather, such as the vintage look, the intensity of the color and the natural texture including creases and markings of the hide, impart a sense of a rustic casualness – a classic quality of Tuscany. The colors of the Toscanella Collection include all natural shades reminiscent of the Tuscan landscape, be it the gently sloping hills of Siena, the vineyards of Chianti, the olive groves near Lucca or the stone architecture of Florence.
The lining: the warm shades of green, orange, brown and black were combined on a light beige colored cotton background to create an exclusive lining for the Toscanella Collection of leather goods. Suitable for men, women and kids this luminous lining compliments the selected colors of the vegetable tanned leather: black, dark brown, tobacco, green, saffron, ivory, red and blue.
The trim: no detail is overlooked in the Toscanella Collection, including the sealed and buffed edges of the leather. Each cut edge has been sealed with a terracotta color paint and buffed to bring out the shine. This orange color is typical of the terracotta pots and urns handcrafted in Impruneta, a small town just outside the gates of Florence well known for its kilns, where pots and urns or unique beauty are manufactured.
The hardware: is composed of a nickel covered metal, selected so that the natural chemicals in the vegetable tanned leather won’t tarnish and discolor the metal accessories. The snaps and buttons are etched with the iconic cypress tree symbol – just another reminder of the inspiration for these casual chic leather accessories. All buckles, snaps, buttons and zips are Made in Italy, a guarantee of quality.
