Beautiful high quality Italian leather bags made by hand in Venice. Worth the price!Unique and classic designs. A must see store when visiting Venice! Quality and craftsmanship is evident in their products. Excellent service.

They are so proud of their work and you know that everything they make is 100% real. They design their own bags and have real leather. Unfortunately, very few places can say they sell authentic goods.

No matter how many times I am in Venice this has been my first shopping stop since I discovered it 10 years ago. I have a bag for each year, and this year I bought 2. They only get more beautiful with age.

The handbags here are beautifully made from beautiful leather, and I bought one. My only caveat is the aggressive sell. Take your time.

My wife and I came with the recommendation from a friend. Initially it was hard to find because our friend gave the wrong address. But after looking around for awhile, the trademark criss-cross pattern leather bag confirmed we are at the right place. The bags...More

Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
