Il Ponte Pelletteria S.p.A was established in 1969 in Scandicci, Italy, when it was still a small village just outside Florence. Set up by five partners, the company was immediately recognised for its production of stylish handbags and accessories. From the large artisan workshop, on the outskirt of Florence, high quality products, made with luxury materials and very specific working techniques were manufactured; they had an elegant classic look, which was different to the usual fashions.
The range includes luggage, travel bags, briefcases, ladies handbags and small leather goods for a total of about 700 items. Key pieces such as their briefcases, doctor bags and lady’s shoulder bags have become true icons of style and are still requested by the market.
Each product is made by using expert craftsmanship and is allowed to become an exclusive object with a strong personality only after a series of rigid controls. The Bridge, with its creations, aims to target an audience of customers that prefers a classic elegance and understated luxury, with attention to quality and details. The full-grained leather, artisan work and brass finishings are the distinctive elements of the brand.
The Bridge favours the naturalness and softness of the hides they select. Only the best full-grain leather from European farms is used, to guarantee the quality of the raw materials which have a smooth grain, without scratches or imperfections. The working process is carried out by hand according to the craftsmanship rules of the Florentine tradition.
