Accessories

Looking for a pair of nice Italian shoes that will work with your outfit? I have a proposition to you: why don’t you consider Fratelli Borgioli? I recently discovered them flipping through Forzieri’s website and right from the start, they caught my eye. You just know when you see quality and this is it. There […]

When I spoke about venetian glass jewelry a while ago, I went into detail to describe some of the ancient techniques that the artists of Murano island use to create their products (to the extent I could learn about them, as they still well kept secrets), and I even named a few firms that specialize […]

In a previous post, I said that the handbag is a woman’s most precious accessory, a friend that is always by her side. However, I must say that her shoes are also up there on the list. Many times, they are all that a woman cares for. For that reason, getting the most beautiful pair […]

The story of the name begins immediately after the war, in 1919, in the small Italian town of Vallesella, up in the enchanting Dolomite Mountains. The founders opened a shop that was going to produce high […]

If you’re thinking about fine Italian jewelry, then your mind almost immediately takes you back to Florence. As the center of craftsmanship for many centuries, the city has given birth to a myriad of small shops producing some of the most fascinating jewels the world has ever seen. With a large number of artisans and […]

I love this specialization in Italy. Whereas Venice is the absolute authority on everything related to Murano Glass, the Florentines are unsurpassed when it comes to fine leather working. An entire industry was built here around this passion and one of the companies that’s been continuously perfecting its technique over the years is Chiarugi Firenze. […]

What do you you think is the most representative souvenir that you can take that will later make you think “Aha! Venice”? Something unique, something that only Venetians know how to make.
