Woman Lily lipstick case contessina: a high quality product handmade in the Florentine style. Discover the collection of Leather Accessories Woman di FP Pelletterie
We all know how much perfect a woman always want to be at any time of the day, whether she's at home, out or at work. Through a small mirror inside, the large Giglio leather lipstick case allows her to check at any time if lipstick and makeup are perfect and otherwise, to give one last touch. Its size allows it to accommodate inside both the large and the small lipstick and through a silver button, prevents from going out and getting lost in the bag. On its front it is decorated with three Florentine coats of arms: the Lily, the symbol of the city, the Lion, that is also present on the tower of the Signoria’s Palace, and the coat of arms of the Medici, the most important family ever lived in Florence. This lipstick case is dedicated to Contessina de Bardi, the Cosimo de’ Medici’s wife.

The real Florentine Leather is one of the only natural material that guarantees maximum strength over the years, even in case of the continuous opening and closing of the holder. This material in fact, obtained through the vegetable tanning of the cowhide leather, is as robust as it is flexible.

Painting process:
The distinctive element of each FP Pelletterie’s accessory is the coloring made entirely by hand, using the technique invented in the seventies by the founder Flavio Parenti and arrived to our days through the passage of the “secret recipe” from father to son. Because of the coloring process made one piece at time, each lipstick case has a color pattern that is a little different from the other, as in the case of all the pieces of art, that are not identically reproducible.

The phase before the final assembly is the decoration of the object, where the leather undergoes a treatment by heat silver leaf, made entirely by hand according to the typical technique of the Florentine artistic tradition. It is no coincidence that Florence is famous in the world for art, leather and gold and silver.

The lipstick inside is left natural with a minimal decoration to celebrate the real Florentine cowhide leather. In the part where the lipstick is placed there is a Velcro coating thought to protect it.
