Scuola del cuoio-Leather craftsmanship in Monastery of Santa Croce, Florence

August 14, 2011


Master craftsmen and designers have been working for years, perfecting the art of making leather goods. Over the years they have created a unique assortment of artisan bags, wallets, luggage and a lot more.


If you’re interested in mastering the art yourself, they keep courses and workshops. Their vision for Scuola del Cuoio is to revive the minor arts, drawing from the experience of the master craftsmen, and to uphold the great traditions of Florentine quality craftsmanship, also by providing a unique learning experience for visitors and students from all over the world (their words). Full courses range from three months to full year and short courses are offered from even three hours to a week for students, visitors and tourists alike. It would be so cool to be able to make one of these babies by myself someday! image

If you’re interested, here is the address: Via S. Giuseppe 5R – 50122 Florence – Italy
