Made in Italy – Really!

If you are shopping around Rome you will see “Made in Italy” labels everywhere.  They fail to mention, however, that most likely the label on the item is the only thing that was actually made in Italy!

If you want the real deal, without spending a fortune, look no further than Andrea of Essere Vento.  He is a kind, talented and innovative artisan, and his passion is manifested in his hand made leather products.


The products of Essere Vento are a variety of high-quality leather products, including purses, wallets and other accessories created in Tuscan leather, using rich colors and Andrea’s inventive designs.
