A LOVE AFFAIR WITH ITALY
Combining our love for Italy and handbags, Appassionata Boutique has mastered the craftsmanship of luxury, handmade Italian leather handbags.
We have met many talented Italian artisans over the years but our true love affair came to life when we met the Ribichini family. They have been establishing a new standard of luxury handbags for decades for brands like Gucci, Prada and Bottega Veneta. When the Ribichini family asked if they could partner with us – how could we say no!
Fusing Italian leather mastery and exquisite style, our handbags are made with the highest quality materials from Florence. We design all our bags in collaboration with Andrea Ribichini. His team then bring all our designs to life using their passion and unrivalled experience. The colour of the dye, the type of weave, the size of a zip – each element of the artisan’s mastery is meticulously considered.
Like most women, our love for handbags started at a young age. We set up Appassionata Boutique so women could appreciate beautiful, handmade handbags, which have lasting value in mind. Discovering local artisans in Italy has inspired us to offer this unique mastery in the UK.
At AB we believe an exquisite handbag is a heritage accessory to be enjoyed for generations.
