All Officina del Poggio bags are designed, developed, and handmade in Italy. The entire collection is made in a family-run factory in the heart of Tuscany, south of Florence. They closely monitor the production and ensure that each bag is produced in a safe, healthy, and happy workplace. The core collection features Italian vegetable-tanned leather from Tuscany. Fibers removed from the hides are recycled to make agricultural fertilizer, waste from the depuration process is recycled to create bricks for the construction industry, and organic discards are used to make the pill-coverings in the pharmaceutical industry.
