Every time I call Fabio, I am afraid that he will no longer be making handbags. He is quite elderly and one of a dying breed of leather craftsmen. His one of a kind handmade bags are simply works of art with the best hardware, materials and attention to detail. The bag above is black cavallino with python trim. It even has a python cell phone pocket inside!
This sweet, smaller red leather bag has python trim as well. I love the details on the front of the bag.
Chia remains the most spoiled and most famous dog here in Florence. When I awoke this morning, I was greeted with her face right next to mine! We are looking forward to all the shopping tours in the coming weeks. Lots of new shoes, jewelry and leather this spring- temptations everywhere!
