A decidedly "English" aesthetic.
The Bridge is a Florentine brand specialized in luxury leather goods created in 1975 by Il Ponte Pelletteria S.p.A. Today The Bridge is one of the most famous Made in Italy brands in the industry, famous above all for the production of leather bags and briefcases. II Ponte Pelletteria S.p.A. was founded in 1969 in Scandicci, then a small village near Florence. Founded by five partners, the company has distinguished itself from its origins for the production of bags and accessories with a strongly characterized style. From the large artisan laboratory to the outskirts of Florence come out high quality products, made with precious materials and unique workmanship. The "Made in Italy", the work of the Florentine artisan workshop is combined with a decidedly "English" aesthetic. An Anglo-Tuscan style is born which will be inspired by many in the following years. In the collections of these early years, marketed under the brand The Bridge, leather is the undisputed protagonist, made from leather of national origin, only full grain. The best leather is worked according to the most rigorous artisanal techniques, from the tanning phase to dyeing and polishing with amber rollers. The result is a soft and elastic leather, with a bright and lively look that, with the passage of time, acquires that unique and unmistakable charm, characteristic of all The Bridge products. In 1987, with the transfer to the existing plants located in the production district of Scandicci, the company moved from a large artisan workshop to a real industrial reality. From this moment on, the company has become more and more significant over the years for the economic fabric of the province and the region itself. Today the company continues its production in addition to leather accessories, also of different materials, such as: canvas, embossed coated fabric and technical fabrics.
