In 1958 Antonio Piumelli opened a small workshop where he personally made leather gloves. He took care of every phase of production: from the choice of materials and design to the selection of colors from a wide range. From the very beginning, the use of top quality leather, excellent craftsmanship, and timeless design were the keys to the brand's success. In the 1960s, the brand gained international recognition, which led to retail and wholesale distribution that forced the company to become more specialized and faster production. During this period, Piumelli also expanded its product range, launching bags and small leather goods. Piumelli is always at the cutting edge of fashion and this allows the brand to always offer a contemporary feel suitable for the modern woman, without losing sight of the renowned artisan tradition and Italian design.
