Not one to get excited about a pair of shoes but I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to add these handcrafted leather ballet flats to my wardrobe. Delicately soft on the foot and in several refreshing colors, these ballet flats are ideal for the warmer temps (if they should ever arrive here at Pierotucci Italian Leather Handbag Factory !!)
last Friday would have been the perfect time to have wrapped this belt around, not only because it would definitely tip any TGIF outfit into a TGIF Night outfit – but because the ornate belt buckle is the perfect good luck symbol. All you would need is to add your leather jacket and grab your leather handbag to head out the door and enjoy the weekend.
The allure of this handcrafted belt goes way beyond the embossed leather and the fine craftsmanship, or even further than the unique Italian design and quality leathers. Yes, this leather belt pulls you in and asks you to look at the buckle and the symbol of the scarab which adds the perfect amount of intrigue and mystery to this designer Italian leather Belt from Post & Co and Pierotucci in Florence Italy.
It is said that the origins of are found with the Roman number for 17 which is XVII. Now if you take those same symbols and rearrange them to make the Latin phrase VIXI, it means “I have lived”, which can also be interpreted as “I am dead.” Not a pleasant thought… However some indications show that this number has had negative vibes even as far back as the Greeks.
In any case, throughout Italy you will find that they spend just a little bit more time making sure that there are no black cats around, that their good luck charms are nearby and that they avoid ladders, feathers and laying their hats on the bed.
As for us here at Pierotucci Leather Factory, we just keep a Fortunata Italian leather handbag by our side for the course of the day – and we are pretty sure we are warding off the evil eyes!
It would certainly appear that tomatoes are the obvious the first signs of spring / summer in Italy. Though you can find these red globes all year round it is clear that the flavour is only available with the warm temps. Then all of a sudden a pomodoro is a work of art, a succulent, juicy absolutely delicious ingredient to be used everywhere. But no where is as enjoyable as the infamous tri color plate which practically yells ITALY where ever you see (or eat) it. After preparing a cool refreshing dish of Proscuitto e melone, only the caprese ranks up there with ease and taste bud satisfaction.
Last week, as I was doing my food shopping there was as a young, sassy gentleman shopper (obviously not well trained in how to stack food items precariously without loosing any.) I had the unfortunate front row position as he dropped a container of mozzarella (the fresh kind that rest in their own milk before eating.) Everyone within a two meter radius was spattered with the watery white liquid . . .and you would have thought that all of us would have oozed out a groan and looked at the gooey mess on our Italian leather shoes, Italian leather handbags and pants . . .
But alas, not the Italians.
All eyes were riveted to the 4 plump mozzarella balls that rolled to the floor. And believe me when I say, you don’t need to practice ESP to know what they were thinking . . . it was the look of desperation that glowed from their eyes. I am sure each and everyone of them was thinking to themselves, “che peccato, that there was no way to save those little white balls from being trashed.”
Then there was the collective glare at the poor soul who committed this crime. One little old lady looked at him and with a voice full of contempt - “Vergognati!” (you should be ashamed of yourself!)
For the last couple of months in Tuscany it seems like its been February, March, April and now May Showers! And according to the saying all this rain should have been producing flowers and not more showers.
There are those of us who suffer from allergies and normally sneeze our way through the colorful array that spring will display – but even us stuffy nose suffer-ers are beginning to long for those May flowers especially after almost four months of constant precipitation. The truth is, we are all beginning to wonder when these Tuscan flowers are going to make their presence known
The best we have to offer at Pierotucci Italian Leather Handbag Factory is the colorful and fragrant CAMPO dei FIORI Collection on a soft and supple nappa lambskin leather, featuring a spray of pink, blue, yellow and purple colored buds looking like they just woke up under the Tuscan Sun.
Caterina Lucchi designer handbags, were designed to be a compliment to a personality that like to be a protagonist in her worlds – someone who was a mover and a shaker. These characteristics are highlighted with texture by mixing and matching sheraling, wool, washed leather, embossed leather and a polished vachetta. The designers use natural earthy colors, in fact there is a coupling of elements that which is a perfect mix between rugged and elegant. Easily identified with the Caterina Lucchi trademark – a super sized tassel that hangs from almost each one of the designs – or the Caterina Lucchi logo which is embroidered on the inside of the bags. In any case, these leather handbags are unmistakable! Simply look for a design that sends the message – Look at me! I was made in Italy!
What could be more attractive in washed leather than a Campomaggi bag? Only Caterina Lucchi captures the essence of the leather like Campomaggi and transforms it into a master piece with a feminine touch. These Italian leather handbags use the same material that goes into the internationally sought washed leather Campomaggi business bags, messenger bags and overnight totes. Yet the final result is distinctly for women only! Caterina Lucchi, started business in 1986. It was obvious that the masterminds behind Campomaggi had decided that it was time to created a second personality. As appealing as their rugged appearance was, the designing fashion world wanted something different grace a female form. Caterina Lucchi designer Italian leather handbags were the answer, finally a bag that the ladies could call all their own.
Catterina Lucchi washed leather designer handbags and tote bags are designed to utilize the much appreciated look of a leather that has a vintage appeal. The assembly of these Italian leather handbags is essentially the sames as the procedure used for their masculine counterpart. The bags are cut and assembled and then aged with their very own secret process. All of the hardware has an antique look to it which naturally compliments the colors and texture of the leather.
Perhaps one of the major distinguishing points between Campomaggi and Caterina Lucchi are the seasons. The Caterina Lucchi desiger bags are frequently appearing in new shades and variations of a theme. The bags for SS 2013 are already in the stores and you will find pastel colors and vintage inspired textures including soft shades of pink and biege – a stark contrast to last winters bold colors in green, rust and blue.
Are you one of those who Caterina Lucchi identifies as “creating her own world?”

Every designer adds a line of specialty bags to those collections to match those lovely couture outfits – stunning with black satin tassels and gold colored accents. says M. Tucci from Pierotucci Leather Factory
By definition an evening bag is contained in its size, so as to not out strip the importance of the outfit and the “serata” but this does not diminish the necessity of having the just the right size. Most evening bags are shown as clutch bags, tucked under the arm and matching well with the outfit. But the reality of the events normally request that the evening bag come with a removable shoulder or cross body strap. Today’s nightlife is much more active which means your evening handbag needs to be on the move with you.
However there is no denying that the allure of an evening bag is sometimes just to add that picture perfect touch to the outfit – a designer piece like this Jason Wu bag in the 2013 Collection is the perfect example of a artists master piece.

What ever would the modern day Dorothy from Kansas think if she were to see these flashy and wild ballet flats from Porselli? We like to think that she would most grab her faithful dog Toto and place him in an elegant handmade genuine Italian leather handbag (instead of the old wicker basket) before skipping off in here soft suede Porselli ballet flats to find the yellow brick road . . .
However, the patterns of spots in each are different: the cheetah has simple black spots, evenly spread; the jaguar has small spots inside the polygonal rosettes; while the leopard normally has rounder, smaller rosettes than those of the jaguar.
Marco, at Pierotucci Italian leather factory is working on one of the Toscanella leather handbags. As you can see he has assembled the lining first, starting with the characteristic 100% all cotton striped lining, padded with a ridge protection and reinforcement. You can see how the front flap has already been attached. The bags are sewn and then turned inside out so that the striped lining will be evident on the interior of the genuine Italian leather handbags.
Once the linings are prepared the will be inserted in the the prepared leather bag and then sewn into place, and the final product will be available . . .
