Part II We are very proud of the craftsmen and women who make up our production staff. They do good work and take pride in sending out top quality, handmade leather handbags, bags and accessories. We would like to honor them and their stories in the next few blogs.
Betta, which is short for Elisabetta (that’s Elisabeth in English) has been with Pierotucci since ’78 and she doesn’t look a day over 30! (Work with us here!!) Not only is she our “Jolly” filling in when the orders need extra help cutting the leather, inserting the lining or composition of the bags but she is also responsible for the prepping of the accessories. This means she reads the patterns that are to go into production and cuts the zips, counts the buttons, snaps, logos and rivets. She takes care of all the ordering for extras and the organization of all the leather in our warehouse. Without her bee booping around the production department we wouldn’t have a clue where to find anything. In the photo below you can see her counting out the rivets for our Toscanella line of ladies handbags and mens bags. She pitches in when it is necessary to prep the handles, assemble the buckles and mark the decorative lines on the bags. Betta was born and raised in Florence and is quite proud of her city. She told us that Sundays are reserved watching for her favorite soccer team (VIOLA from Florence) but most probably she reserves Sundays for soccer only because the shops are closed and she can’t follow her first love… shopping!!
