Handmade soft leather bags: a history that spans the centuries
Not only handmade soft leather bags but also every other product made by the hands of skilled craftsmen is a pride for our country and Made in Italy, famous all over the world.
When we talk about craftsmanship we refer to able artists who have handed down their passions and traditions from father to son, closely guarded tricks and secrets of the most ancient crafts of the world.
What are the origins of craftsmanship?
The handmade soft leather bags of Eliem Venice are handmade by expert craftsmen. The origins of these ancient crafts date back to the far Medioevo and, just like for the artists, becoming a craftsman in that period was very hard and it required a lot of effort and engagement. People who wanted to become a craftsman joined an association since childhood, and with the help of an expert craftsman, they learned the art and secrets of the craft. Moreover, these associations were called “the corporations of arts and crafts” and they were real organizations.
Craftsmanship in Italy and the Made in Italy
In Italy, the history of craftsmanship is handed down from generation to generation and the great craftsmen convey art, uniqueness, tradition, and sacrifices to whom, after them, want to carry the torch and learn from these ancient crafts, full of culture and great history.
