An Italian story of style, passion, creativity and craftsmanship since 1963. An unique mission: to create perfect handmade crocodile bags. Gino Gorreri founded GORRERI workshop in year 1963 after several years of apprentice in a shoemaker where he learned all of the secrets of leather. Gino and his staff of collaborators, over the years perfected all phases of production pouring a considerable refinement in his creations, such as designing in house the closure of the handmade bags, then made in solid brass forged, not stamped, and then plated at high thickness.
The crocodile skins are polished two times with natural stones and treated in a way to exalt the natural appearance of the animal making every scale slightly rounded. The lining inside is all made in goat and the light colour is chosen to exalt the natural grain of the leather, and prove the high quality also for the inside of each bag. Those are just some of the secrets that each bag carry with her and most of them has to be learned here in the small Laboratory where those pieces of art are created.
