FP Pelletterie's goal is to offer high quality artisan products, capable of generating strong emotions, which can satisfy the customer, bringing them back to the past. FP Pelletterie products are handmade, one by one, by members of the same family. We want to rediscover and relive in the hearts of our aficionados, artisan emotions.
FP PELLETTERIE is a beautiful family story,
OF AUTHENTIC EMOTIONS and passion in making quality artisanal things. p>
In the seventies Flavio Parenti, together with his wife Carla, he began to build in the old stable of his Florentine home the first leather accessories: powder and lipstick cases.
After a few years, in 1977, he opened a real small leather goods workshop in the heart of Florence, expanding the items offered and moving to an even more precious and typical material of the Florentine tradition: leather.
Over the years the many original ideas lead Flavio Parenti to invent a particular technique of manual coloring of Florentine leather, still secret and loved all over the world. p>
The strength of this small leather goods, however, lies in the family of Flavio, who is helped by his wife and his three children, who over the years become the only custodians of secrets and of his father's discoveries.
In 1988, their daughter Flavia and her husband (also Flavio) decided to open the first FP Pelletterie store in the center of Florence, moving the production in the suburbs.
Born as a stall with leather goods, in 1993 the couple decided to expand the sales space, opening the first FP PELLETTERIE branded shop.
In the years to come the FP PELLETTERIE craft shops will increase, currently reaching three in the most symbolic point of the city: Piazza Duomo.
Even today in one of the bags shops in the center of Florence it is possible to admire and photograph part of the tools used in the old artisan workshop.
Great willpower, teamwork spirit and love for all that has been handed down by parents have allowed to the FP brand to grow, offering customers high quality handcrafted products, rigorously handmade in Italy.
