"A Balla item is a really beautiful accessory, a gem that can complete and enrich all outfits"

In 2019 Brunella and Alessandro created the Balla brand, written BA || A, which was inspired by the movement, dynamism, and freedom associated with their creations. The distinguishing factors of their products are usefulness and uniqueness—unisex items to wear at the beach, on a motorbike, while shopping, or even traveling. The brand has even filed a utility and design patent to protect them from any imitation or counterfeits. Balla is based in Sesto Fiorentino in Toscana and is run mainly by the couple, whom accredit the heart of the company to four expert leather craftsmen.

In fact, all cutting, gluing, lettering applications, and final assembly are carried out by hand. All leathers—full grain, croc-embossed, aged, and pony skin—are supplied by strictly Italian companies, and the packaging is also created by an artisanal company from Locorotondo in Apulia. After a thorough quality control, they pack each order with their own hands, inserting into every package a handwritten note explaining the craftsmanship of the product and its Italian character.


Birthplace of the Renaissance, Tuscany is known for its strong cultural heritage and picturesque landscapes. Tuscany is actually the 2nd most popular tourist destination in Italy.

It is a vital agricultural region, specializing in cereals, olives, and grapes. In fact, it’s home to one of the world’s most prestigious wine areas, specifically Chianti. The region also has a number of thriving sectors including: mining, textile, artisan, and pharmaceutical.

Florence is the region’s crown jewel, but tourists also flock to Pisa, Siena, and Lucca. The rolling hills of Val d’Orcia, glamorous coast of Versilia, and hidden gems of Giglio Island also make Tuscany an internationally-beloved destination.
