You never know where life’s twists and turns are going to take you. When I was a kid my parents would take us to their friend Andy’s house every year for his big Octoberfest bash. All the kids would run around and play together in their huge backyard and then have a slumber party. It was so much fun! Andy’s daughter Donna and I hadn’t stayed in touch after the parties, however, we recently reconnected and have bonded over our love for wine, blogging, beautiful leather goods and everything Italian! Donna now lives in Tuscany and works for Pierotucci. Today she has asked me back for a second guest blog exchange and is offering my readers free shipping! (mention Lipstick & Leopard Print with your order and the shipping charge will be credited back when the order ships) Check out their fresh, new line of wallets and accessories below!
Art, shopping, and Italy, a trio of life’s unbeatable pleasures. So why not combine them all and see what you get? I’ll give you a hint…intrecciata. Intrecciata in Italian, literally meaning twisted or intertwined, is the art or technique of weaving leather. You can get a true feel for Tuscany and this Italian art form with Toscanella’s beautifully hand woven collection of men and women’s Italian leather wallets and accessories. From the men’s billfold wallet to the women’s clutch wallet this woven handwork is spectacular in look and design, giving you the perfect idea of what Italy is all about.
Reminiscent of Bottega Veneta in style, these Italian leather wallets come in four perfectly matched color combinations including a rich seven color lining, staying true to the original colors of the Toscanella collection. Each color in the collection is thoughtfully chosen to represent the vibrant earthy tones found throughout the rolling hills of Tuscany. Whether it’s the bright saffron yellow or deep olive green you get a true feeling for the Italian countryside. With such intricate detailing on the face and backside, be sure not to miss the subtle, yet thoughtful features and use of color on the inside.
Besides the unique color schemes, all of which share a terracotta colored leather woven throughout, you can also choose from three different models of wallets and accessories including a leather coin purse and key holder with the same exquisite leather work.
I, myself, favor the clutch wallet which perfectly showcases the detailed woven work and with zip around style it makes it impossible to misplace anything. Plus, it’s big enough to double as a small clutch in the evening time, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love and item that can serve more than one purpose?
Toscanella’s leather weave collection is the true definition of what an Italian artisan product should be. Made completely by hand with hours of hard work and precision, they use nothing but the best and highest quality leather, Italian leather of course! In addition to being brilliantly made they are also a part of Toscanella’s collection of limited edition pieces. So, if you’re searching for an impeccably made Italian leather wallet, look no farther than Toscanella’s Intrecciata Collection.
