In the world of leather goods, there is still one company that carries out its production exclusively in Florence. Bottega Manifatturiera Borse S.p.A produces bag collections for the luxury's top designer brands. The company was found in 1968 as craftsman company by Gianfranco Lotti.
He decided to set up his own leather laboratory in Florence after having developed immersive craftsman skills by beginning his career with 14 years in a leather workshop. After less than 20 years, Gianfranco Lotti started a production of small leather goods for international fashion brands. The client portfolio enlarged by gaining orders from more famous luxury brands in the following years. Today, the company, domiciled in Scandicci (FL), still holds on to its former values of high quality, craftsmanship and authenticity by benefiting of its long term experience. In order to guarantee the high quality of the products and the uniformity of the manufacturing process, all the components of the bags are prepared in-house and are objects to the strict compliance of quality controls in every production phase. All of the approximately 110 co-workers have to sign a statement of responsibility in compliance with Italian law no. 626. This makes it possible to produce high quality bags that fully comply with the requirements of the prestigious "Made in Italy" brand. Quality goes hand in hand with the protection of this brand: and all BMB products are truly made in Italy.
