Made in Italy, or better, made in Florence
Looking for something really italian? In our laboratory in Florence we dedicate ourselves every day to the invention and creation of objects that are always new but always traditional. With the methods and secrets of Italian and Tuscan craftsmanship and old italian artisans we create objects that all have their Made in Italy and Made in Florence certificate. The processing is entirely of our own production, so the word that resonates in all our work is authenticity: all our objects are truly made in Italy, the only raw materials we buy abroad are clearly indicated, and they are the machinery. of the watches we buy in Germany as they are the only ones that give a two-year guarantee of operation. Everything else, starting from the leather rolls, the wooden plates, the shellac, up to the brushes and nails, are all raw materials purchased in Florence and in the province. Our goal, as artisans and as traders, is to support local businesses, those close to us, by buying in the small shops and wholesalers of our city, with the hope of always keeping the life of our beloved Florence alive.
