After 20 years of working as a leather goods manufacturer in Tuscany, Giorgio Cenere decided to create his own line called Brunocenere. Giorgio’s grandmother, Mimma Grandi, opened the first costume jewelry shop in Torino during the 1950s, a source of immense inspiration for her grandson.
It was this family tradition along with passion for leather and desire to express himself that led Giorgio to create his own brand. Together with his wife, Mariacristina, he opened the first Brunocenere boutique in the seaside town of Alassio in November 2016.
Here customers can meet the talented artisans, witness their craftsmanship and even request customized models.
The Brunocenere line includes clutches, bucket bags, backpacks, briefcases, belts, key rings, wallets and pet leashes. Every single item is crafted with heart from quality materials such as leather, crocodile, ostrich and much more. They each offer a unique, personalized style in true Made in Italy fashion.
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.
