What hap­pens when the her­itage of tra­di­tional Tus­can leather mak­ing meets the world of Mi­lanese fash­ion? En­ter the Il Bisonte store in the beat­ing heart of the Quadri­latero della Moda to dis­cover a world ded­i­cated to style and crafts­man­ship. Since 1970, this Floren­tine brand of leather goods and ac­ces­sories founded by Wanny Di Filippo has been dis­tin­guished by the orig­i­nal­ity of its cre­ations, hand­crafted by skilled ar­ti­sans us­ing high-qual­ity ma­te­ri­als such as cowhide, leather and all-nat­u­ral veg­etable-tanned leather. In ad­di­tion to bear­ing the Made in Italy mer­chan­dise mark, Il Bisonte's bags, doc­u­ment hold­ers, suit­cases, travel ac­ces­sories and small leather goods share the same at­ten­tion to de­tail, both as re­gards their de­sign and the var­i­ous stages in­volved in pro­duc­tion process. From leather cut­ting to split­ting and hand-sewn de­tails, each stage of the process is car­ried out ac­cord­ing to time-hon­oured meth­ods, handed down from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion like a pre­cious art to be safe­guarded. The use of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als guar­an­tees the unique­ness of each prod­uct, a char­ac­ter­is­tic that has al­ways been dear to Il Bisonte. Be­yond the ro­mance, the magic of Il Bisonte's as­sorted ac­ces­sories lies in the leather. Us­ing a tra­di­tional Tus­can process of veg­etable tan­ning, an Il Bis­tonte bag only gets bet­ter with time, em­brac­ing the unique qual­i­ties im­pressed on it with each wear. Those wish­ing to fur­ther per­son­al­ize their ac­ces­sories with cus­tom-made de­tails can now take ad­van­tage of a new ser­vice of­fered by the bou­tique in via Santo Spir­ito which of­fers cus­tomers the op­tion of hav­ing their name, sur­name and date of pur­chase en­graved on var­i­ous prod­ucts mak­ing each Il Bisonte ac­ces­sory a travel com­pan­ion with time­less ap­peal. The brand's stores also stock items from the ‘Lib­erty In­side' col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing a com­bi­na­tion of leather and coloured cot­ton can­vas.
