Craftsmanship

Timeless collection

"Fashion changes every second. On the other side we would like to create bags that our clients will never throw away, that they can pass to their children"

CREATIVITY WITH NO LIMITS

  • Our mission is to help bring creative design projects to life. So we try to find a production solution for any design that we receive
  • In Italy this can be possible because there is an incredible number of small companies flexible and able to try something new

SUSTAINABILITY

  • We commit to produce without damaging the humanity. Not only focusing on the materials and the production processes, but also thanks to a business model that prefers selling what is sold rather than producing huge stocks
  • That’s one of the reasons why we are working with small local artisans rather than big industrial producers

Where we produce

"A natural supply chain of local artisans that exploits the centuries-old tradition of Italian craftsmanship, passed from father to son, from generation to generation"

MADE IN ITALY

  • Our bags are created by some of the most talented Italian artisans
  • Mainly in Tuscany, near Florence, but also in Lombardy, near Milan
  • It’s a natural supply chain of local artisans that exploits the centuries-old tradition of Italian craftsmanship, passed from father to son, from generation to generation
  • With this project UP TO YOU ANTHOLOGY helps enhancing and preserving an important professional know-how and heritage

MANUFACTURING

  • From the product development to the final production, from cutting to stitching, sewing, dying, up to the quality control, we pay close attention to the way our bags are constructed, with the utmost care and attention to every detail

THE MATERIALS

"All our materials are carefully selected to match the designer’s wishes and to keep the highest quality. Even very unexpected ones like rattan canes or plexiglas"

LEATHER

  • They come exclusively from Italian tanneries, among the best in the world for quality, technology, sustainability and ethical respect
  • Our artisans work every type of leather, from the saddle leather with vegetable tannage, to the calf, to nabuck, to vegan leather… to any kind of leather the designer wants to use
  • We mainly use bovine leathers, the most ecological raw material, because it is basically waste from the food industry

OTHER MATERIALS

  • Other products are in fabrics or special materials, and they also come from companies selected for their environmental attention, which adopt production processes of minimal impact and recycled textile products. For example we have some products in felt that comes from recycled plastics
