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.
It would be that Renza is very enthusiastic about her work. She has been handling leather bags since 1974 and has been working with Pierotucci for the last 6 years. Though she has experience in all areas of the production her main responsibility here is the assembly of the bags. When talking to Renza about her work, it is easy to interpret the passion she puts into assembling each and every item. Her primary responsibilities include piecing them together and stitching them up. Years of experience have taught her the tricks of the trade. Since once piece of leather is never the same as the next, she calls on these skills to insure that each piece will be a work of art. Renza truly enjoys compiling a bag, in fact it gives her great satisfaction to see the final results and even more so when a client sends comments of appreciation. She is always quick with a smile and has that typical quick humor that the Tuscans and even more so the Florentine are famous for. In the photo below you can see Renza hand sewing one of our bags in a green vegetable dyed vachetta leather. Though most seams are done on a sewing machine to insure secure and even stitches, there are some pieces which are just too complicated and require a steady hand! Renza is what we call a Fiorentina D.O.C., just like the wine 100% authentic, and when she isn’t sitting at her work table she likes to be outside walking the countryside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
