THIS IS NOT MADE IN ITALY, THIS IS "PROUDLY MADE IN ITALY"!
ITALIAN FOR ITALY is a fresh take on the promotion of Italian creativity and excellence in hand-crafted products all over the globe.
Today, "Made in Italy" does not always merit a stamp of real Italian quality. To counter false claims and practices that take unfair advantage of cheap labor, ITALIAN FOR ITALY is an effort to advocate high-quality goods that start and end Italian, and at the same time bring together manufacturing efficiencies from different parts of the world.
Our Milan based production platforms, well-trained craftsmen, fair trade practices, carefully chosen materials and processing techniques merge the best in the world with the Italian sense of style and caliber, earning our products a genuine seal of Italian workmanship.
“I believe in diversification as the way to keep us true to ourselves. In hard times like these, we can fight the crisis going back to our roots, being faithful to our values, both human and material. The age of superficiality is over. It's time for Authenticity.”
-Paco Polenghi, Co-founder of ITALIAN FOR ITALY-
ITALIAN FOR ITALY is PROUDLY MADE AROUND THE WORLD
and, above all, it's now 100% MADE IN ITALY
REVOLUTIONARY RECYCLED BAGS
ITALIAN FOR ITALY bags were created during real-life journeys: they're bits and pieces of different worlds, distant in space and time.
They speak of revolutions, love, art, war, devotion, hard work, joy, tears and ancient traditions.
Each bag is an exclusive piece, handcrafted using the materials, often precious, always recycled, that we've found during our trips around the world.
The unique designs are available in many versions.
Amongst our materials you can find antique kilim rugs, vintage army fabrics and blankets, and even tubes from trucks.
These are finished at our Italian factory based in Milan, with top quality Made in Italy vegetable tanned leather and brass metal accessories, in order to become real luxury products:
simple, refined, long-lasting.
