Rather, he per­son­ally guar­an­tees their bona fides.

Hand­cut from painstak­ingly se­lected, top-qual­ity cloth, leathers and ex­otic hides, and (in­so­far as small leather goods go) hand-con­structed us­ing the dou­ble­nee­dle sad­dle stitch tech­nique, De Peppo’s cre­ations are in­tended not merely as an ephemeral means of flaunt­ing wealth, but as use­ful, beau­ti­ful fu­ture heir­looms that im­prove with age and can be proudly passed down the gen­er­a­tions. They’re in­tended to be unique – the work of one per­son, for one per­son. As close to per­fect as the crafts­man can man­age.
