Established in 1972, Pierotucci is an Italian leather factory with its own retail leather and jewelry stores located in Florence, Italy. Pierotucci is proud to be one of the few retail stores that carries on the old Florentine tradition of selling hand-crafted leather goods directly from its factory.
Pierotucci began as a small leather shop in the historical Florence center where Piero designed and manufactured all the leather goods himself, supplying local retailers with his creations. In the early 1980’s Piero started developing private label merchandise for famous designers such as Dunhill, Bally, Valentino Garavani, Fratelli Rossetti, Cole-Haan, and most recently, Hugo Boss. Throughout this period, business continued to grow and in early 1990 Piero achieved an even greater demand for his merchandise. In 1994, the handiwork of Pierotucci became available to the general public through the opening of the Leather goods shop which was quickly proceeded by the Art & Jewelry Shop. In 2002 came the unveiling of Pierotucci.com which was designed to offer Pierotucci’s quality leather goods throughout the world.
