Family means big business in Italy. In fact, over half of the population employed by medium-to large-sized companies works for a family business. On a recent visit to Italy we met the Martinelli family who has been crafting their exquisite line of handbags under the name of Giordano since 1975. Each stage is directed by family members who employ meticulous design using inherited skills and an eye for the latest technology. The Martinelli’s don’t speak much English and our Italian doesn’t venture far from ordering the country’s gourmet specialties, but it’s amazing how passion for a product can translate. They’ve come to know Stauer, and in turn, have generously invited us into their exclusive world.
The Clara Bag in rich caramel colored specchio leather is one of our favorites from Giordano’s collection. Featuring a removable shoulder strap, an interior divider pocket, a zippered pouch and two sleeves, Clara is an ideal bag to elevate your everyday. We can’t wait to tell the Martinelli’s how much you like it!
