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.
Our master craftsman, he has been working with leather for …. well …. let’s just say most of his life without going into numbers. We all like to laugh and say that when Marco started working here he had a head full of hair … but after over 40 years of working here, the stress just wore him down! Though he should be enjoying his retirement, Marco finds the energy to come to work everyday – sometimes to fill in when we need an extra hand and some times to teach the new entries the tricks of the trade. He has worked his way through all the varies phases and is now our go to man when problems arise, we are designing new models or when a special customization requires us to modify a model. Marco has been with Pierotucci for ages – and is a fundamental element of our production team. In the image below you can see him working small pieces of leather in a machine that thins out the edges and makes it easier for the seams to be sewn together. If we ever have any doubts about the product or the leather we simply go to Marco for the answers. To sum up his Pierotucci responsibilities in just a few words: he handles production from start to finish (he decides who cuts the patterns, who preps the pieces, who sews and assembles and he has the final say on quality control questions) … and when he is not acting as production manager he is a huge fan of the Florentine Serie A soccer team . . . and like any good Italian man, flirts outrageously with all the girls.
