Serafini Ferruccio Pelletteria

Serafini Ferruccio Pelletteria Review

Fifty years ago, there were more than 200 workshops in Rome making handmade leather handbags and shoes. Today only a handful of these saddlers remain, among them Serafini Ferruccio Pelletteria. In this subterranean emporium, both Bobby and Jack Kennedy once ordered loafers and Marlon Brando fancied the maker's doeskin moccasins. Today, the Serafini brand is managed by Francesca, Ferruccio Serafini's youngest daughter, and the laboratory continues to work the leather just as Ferrucio has since beginning his career in the 1940s. Discerning clients adore their lavish retro-styled handbags. Choose from premade stock or, if you have time, select your own style and accompanying leathers.
