"Good style is simple: a t-shirt, jeans, and nice belt"
After graduating, twin sisters Vanessa and Veronica Saccardi joined their twin brother and started working in their father's leather goods company. After about 15 years in the company and creating models for big name brands, Vanessa took her know-how and creativity to begin a new adventure. Together with Veronica, who’s educated in law, they were able to build their own brand and successfully run all sides of their young business.
Gemelle Firenze is based in Scandicci, Florence and is a brand of simplistic elegance found in the smallest of details. They only use leather from the sustainable supply chain of the Vegetable Leather Consortium and brass accessories produced in Tuscany. The best part of the sisters’ work is the people aspect, working with their employees and sharing satisfaction of a job well done.
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.
