The best shops that work with leather
Florence shopping tour The art of leather (half day)
Florence has been known for leather production, tanning as well as export sales, since the fourteenth century. Originally leather was soaked in the bed of the river Arno, but the activity was moved to Santa Croce area later; the via delle Conce e via dei Conciatori (named after tanning and tanners) illustrate this history. Those who worked in the leather and tanning trade were members of the “Arte dei Cuoiai” (art of Tanners). The Italian tradition of leather goods production peaked in Florence, between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, but there is still this great tradition and quality craftsmanship today.
We offer a journey into the heart of Florence to discover the best leather workshops where all items are handmade with great creativity and fine craftsmanship. Refined desktop items, shoes, bags, are all created in the best tradition of Tuscan artistic leather goods.
