Daniella has been working with Pierotucci for the last 4 years – however her career in leather started when she was only 14 years old. Having owned her own business for several years she is skilled in all the various phases of productions – but at Pierotucci she does what we call “lavoro al banco”. This phrase literally translated, means table work – and in practice she does the bag assembly. Once all the pieces have been prepped, edged and all the accessories are counted out the pieces are all passed on to Daniella, who then assembles them so that they produce a bag. The compiling of the bag includes not only the sewing but adding the lining, attaching handles, snaps and rivets. Some pieces are glued together before they are sewn and all edges need to match up perfectly. As seen in the photo below, she will have a sample of the finished product on her desk and then she will proceed to prepare each phase – once she gets to a point that it needs to be sewn she passes it to her colleague and waits for it to return so she can move on to the next phase. Daniella will very proudly have you note that she is not from Florence – but born and raised in Antella, a little town on the outskirts of Chianti. When she finishes off with work she heads home to her house filled with her faithful companions – her favorite of which is Yuma, a 6 year old hound dog that follows her everywhere!
