Went here looking for gifts for family/friends on our honeymoon. The place is an absolute gem in the heart of Modena. Julia was super helpful and offered to show us around the shop. Everyone was super friendly and the quality of everything is amazing. We skipped buying leather in Florence after hearing that some of it is fake and hard to tell. Couldn’t be happier with our purchases. Thanks again to Julia and everyone else for treating us like family when we walked in.

There are few true artisans left and this store is a one of a kind! Amazed at the quality of the products they offered me a tour of the workshop upstairs. They are so proud of what they do and rightly so! And when I asked for any tips on Parma (my next destination after Modena) they went out of their way to help and write down suggestions. For so many reasons we need more people like this! Thank you for a lovely experience and beautiful new wallet!

We stayed at an apartment nearby, and walked by the leather store during one of our pre-dinner strolls. The products on display caught our eye, but our curiousity was piqued when we saw the onsite workshop. While it was closed when we came by, it had helpful brochures and we planned a return trip. We were welcomed by Julia. She gave us an overview of store's history and the personal pride she takes in being part of their team. We saw all the raw materials they used and briefly met the artisan on site. The craftsmanship of their products are excellent, we learned so much about how different leathers are used for parts of a product. We brought home a few items including a leather tote bag, business card holders, pen/eyeglass cases. While it may not be an ideal planned "family activity" stop, our daughter found the process of making accessories fascinating. Given our daughter's curiosity, Julia also gave her a couple of "leftover" leather as a souvenir and our daughter had her first lesson on how patina forms! We love visiting small towns for reasons such as our visit to this artisan shop. We go out of our way to see where local products are made (like parmegiano reggiano) and happening upon this store was a memorable gift. As tourism thrives in Europe, we think it is harder to find this authenticitiy. We were delighted to visit and encourage you to make a stop!!

My girlfriend and I were walking in Modena when we decided to enter the shop. It looked different than the others. More authentic. It was the best decision of our trip! We met 2 of the 3 leatherworkers there; great people! They showed us their workshop and they took time to explain us the traditional methods! The quality of their handmade goods is unmatchable. I bought 2 wonderful belts. I will definitely make the detour on my next trip to Italia!

Once up on a time (how do you like a story that starts in this way, uh?), while a was strolling along via Torre, a narrow road just in front of the cathedral bell tower named "Ghirlandina", I noticed a tiny leather shop. I entered just for my curiosity and I met Mr. Omar Baraldi, who was creating something beautiful with his own hands. That day I bought a simple belt that I still have and I use. Later on I bought also a pair of sandals which, in some extent, were inspired to an ancient Roman design. Gorgeous! Now all the leather stuff that my wife and I use is from them; belts, bags, wallets, pourses, and even the keyholder. The time passed and the shop moved to a new location, a better place, but still two minutes walking from the cathdral. Even if you are an international brands (Gucci, LV, etc.) lover, it is worth to visit the shop and the lab upstairs. Entering into the shop is a multisensorial experience. It's easy to get enraptured by the fine craftsmenship of their creations, the smell of the leather, the silky and smooth feeling when touching their pieces of artisanal goods. Everytime I buy an artifact from them, for me it's like to buy a piece of tradition, something where you can feel the local culture, the taste,the care of the small details, the background of the local people. Something unique, which is something that you can even use everyday and that is thousand times much more worthy than some cheap memorabilia that soon get forgotten and dusty somewhere at your home; which finally will be sold during one of the future garage sales. Two more notes: the staff speak English and all the leather is processed by using natural means and dyes. Even if you won't buy anything the shop is definitely worth to be visited.
