PIERO VIA PALAGINA
From wicker to woven, Pelletteria Ghibli turned the traditional basket of Florentine women into a piece of high-end fashion labeled Piero Via Palagina.
From 51 years, the Manzi family, generation after generation, keeps alive hand-woven astonishing tradition and keeps secret the process for hand-woving bags with the tubular method, the most luxury of the woven processes.
No machinery can replicate such job, only experienced artisans can. It takes 2 days to build the bone of these bag. Peculiar is the absence of stitching, since the woven is one piece built entirely on a wood shape.
The bags have no lining: the inside is as beautiful as the outside, as the women who wear them.
