FRANCESCO & ELENA FILOMENI - Sant’Elpidio a Mare, Marche
Handwoven leather purses, shoes and even furniture have been coming out of the Filomeni family's workshop in Italy's Le Marche region since 1982, when part-owner Francesco Filomeni’s parents first founded the company. Meticulously hand woven from 150-200 meters of leather string, each satchel has a one-of-a-kind beauty that literally stops admirers on the street, which is a true testament to the skill, patience and quality with which the Filomeni's bags are made.

Great bag, Slow customer service
I was so excited when Milaner came out with the mini Elena bag as the Elena and Anna both seemed to large. The bag is great! The only misleading thing about the bag is the shape. The pictures make it look like a mini tote shape when in fact it is pretty wide and narrow. I was expecting to fit my laptop in the bag but it is way too narrow for that. As long as you plan to use it for daytime and evening use, and not work use, it is great! Also the bag took a while to get to me. I ordered it and recieved it about a month later. I followed up with customer service multiple times and was not happy with the results. The answers about when my bag would arrive were often incorrect (said it was shipping one week and it didnt ship until the next) and the responses were slow. That said, I still would overall recommend Milaner as it is a unique way to support local artisans and get access to great products!
