Leather shop inside the walls

When I was in Lucca three years ago, I discovered a fabulous leather shop where the craftsman was making handbags, wallets, etc. I bought a beautiful handbag there, but can not remember the name. It was about a 5 minute walk from the Hotel Illaria, and it was the only shop I found where the work was done on the premises.

I would love to go there again this summer. Does anyone know of this shop?

I think it possibly could be Legatoria D' Arte. Head down Via del Fosso towards Piazza San Francesco and it's located opposite the Lucca Center of Contemporary Art on Via della Fratta.

There is a small "one man" shop on Via Della Fratta just past Restaurant Ammodonostra and the lavanderia.
