What’s cooking today at Pierotucci in Tuscany Italy?

Fortunata Designer Leather Tote BagIt’s just a little over a year since we have come out with our latest designer handbag model, the Fortunata Designer Tote Bag.  Unique in many ways, this bag actually requires more prep work than any other Italian leather handbag we produce.  This prep time is primarily due to the  constantly changing aspect of the handbag.  By definition this is a limited edition bag, we make only enough bags to consume that particular leather – when it is finished, no more bags.   This means that each bag needs to be profiled ex-nuovo, or rather each time we get a new type of leather, then we need to rematch it with the accent leather, the lining and the hardware such as zips and threads.  Since the concept of this bag was to “recuperate” what we have in house, that means that all zips and canvas to make the removeable and adjustable straps come from stock.

Above you can see Betta studying the work-up sheets and matching colored zips to the one of the elements of the bag (lining, primary leather or accent leather).  It takes a lot of patience, a good memory for what Pierotucci has in stock and a trained eye for color combinations . . . and Betta would say some killer butt muscels for climbing up and down the ladder to search for just the right combo 🙂
