Classic bookmark pico: a high quality product handmade in the Florentine style. Discover the collection of Leather Accessories di FP Pelletterie
For those who love to read, a bookmark is probably the most beautiful gift you can do. Because if the choice of a book is a very personal matter, receiving a particular bookmark always makes a huge pleasure. Today there are millions of different paper bookmarks, but they get ruined soon and becomes unusable. Instead the leather is an extremely durable material, which allows the bookmark to be used practically forever. The front is decorated with three typical symbols of Florence: the Lily, the Lion of the Old Palace’s tower and the coat of arms of the Medici, the most famous family that has ever existed in Florence. The name of this object is dedicated to Pico della Mirandola, an old philosopher from the Accademia Platonica, founded by Cosimo de’ Medici.

There is no gift that is forever, unless this is made of Genuine cowhide leather. This material comes from the cowhide leather, that through the vegetable tanning becomes extremely durable over the years and very flexible at the same.

Painting process:
All bookmarks are entirely painted by hand, one at a time, to reach color textures always a little different, as is the case of a piece of art. The kind of coloring of the FP Pelletterie’s accessories was invented in the 1970s and it has been arrived to this days thanks to the passage of the secret recipe from father to son. There is no one in the world, outside the FP Pelletterie family, that the key steps of this procedure.

Each bookmark is individually hand-decorated with heat silver leaf, using a particular process from the Florentine tradition. Florence is famous in the world not only for the leather manufacture, but also for the processing of precious metals such as gold and silver.
