Wonderful shop - fantastic handmade items on offer - I really recommend taking the time to seek out the shop. Wonderful bags/purses/wallets etc and lots of lovely smaller items for excellent handmade gifts to take home. Signore is lovely too!!! I always come back here.

Best place for authentic handmade leather bags! If you want a unique piece made of leather in Venice, it’s the place to go. Antonio the creator, is very friendly and gives you a great service!

I would recommend anybody to buy a bag at this shop. I bought mine in November 2006 and have used it most days since and it still looks like new and up to date, as it is a classic style. Fantastic quality.

Excellent leather shop that provides true Italian leather. The prices are also very reasonable! I would recommend anyone to go there when visiting Venice.

I really wanted an Italian leather purse made by a real Italian, not the knockoffs I kept seeing all around Venice. I'm not kidding, stamped "MADE IN VENICE". In English. Sure. I reached out on TA's blog space and within a couple of hours I...More

This is the place to get real, handcrafted leather goods. It is a small shop with one man actually sewing all his products. When you consider that everything is made by hand and the incredible quality, the prices are very reasonable.

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture

Andrew, I didn't look at wallets, but the handbag for my wife was 145 euro - and a steal at that price. The quality is stunning.

Yes but he does not have the paperwork for the vat tax. If you say something he will nock a little off the price. It worked for my wife.
