Looking for the perfect gift, or where to spend your own holiday cash gifts? These will fit the bill quite nicely:
A Braccialini handbag is a gift that will be treasured for years to come because of its renowned crafsmanship, gorgeous detailing, and soft Italian leather. With rich colors and artful touches, Braccialini and Braccialini TUA elevate handbags to a new level from their studios in Florence, Italy. The brand’s founder, Carla Braccialini, has garnered multiple awards for her design innovation and inspiration, including the coveted Order of Merit by the President of Italy. So, a Braccialini bag is quite a special gift.
Using the finest leather, Braccialini designs convey joy and fantasy through the use of artful detail, unique leather patterning, inspired embossing techniques, and inventive use of contrasting materials. Offering more than 60 years of tradition, the family-owned Braccialini brand can be found in luxury department stores on every continent. The brand is a fashion fave in Europe, especially Italy (certamente) and is the subject of the Skira/Rizzoli art book “Braccialini, Le borse delle meraviglie” (Bags in Wonderland) by museum curator and writer Fabiana Giacometti. The TUA Braccialini division is lauded for its colorful, whimsical creative and patterned styles.
