The single golf ball handmade leather keychain is an iconic handcrafted accessory of the Florentine tradition. Made in real Leather, this object is built, painted and decorated entirely by hand, respecting the tradition of the old leatherworkers of Florence. At the top there is a hook and a silver ring, both very useful to hold together all the keys of home, work and why not, the keys of your car. On each side there is decorated a coat of arms typical of the city and inside it contains a golf ball, marked with the original Florentine lily. This golf ball key ring takes the name from Gherardo Bosio, a Florentine architect and engineer.

The secret of a great endurance in the years of this single golf ball keychain is definitively because of the real unlined Florentine of which it’s made. This kind of material is known for its strength and it is done by treating cowhide leather with a vegetable tanning, the same that was used in antiquity, when most resistant products were made of leather.

Coloring is one of the most important step for all the FP Pelletterie’s accessories. The technique which is used is secret and it invented in the 1970s by the founder Flavio and it has come to this days through the transition from generation to generation. The dyeing process is strictly made by hand, one single piece at a time, to generate always different patterns in order to have a unique and unrepeatable product.

Before the assembly of the object, the process of decoration takes place in order to make the product even more interesting. At this step the Leather is decorated using heat silver leaf, adding to the product a typical element of the Florentine artistic tradition. On each side is decorated a coat of arms typical of Florence, such as the Lily

The interior of the leather keychain is left to the natural to enhance even more the use of the real Leather and to emphasize the Florentine craftsmanship.
