Corropoli, Italy | Handbags
Federico Rossi and his wife, Emanuela, have worked together side-by-side since getting married twenty-five years ago. As living proof that “l’unione fa la forza,” (Unity is Strength), their handbag company has weathered economic downturns, market competition, and the fast and unforgiving pace of the current fashion industry. “Having the same objectives, challenges and satisfactions in common definitely brings you closer,” notes Emanuela, on the pros of her and Federico’s working relationship. When synthetic purses mass-produced in China flooded the Italian market in the late 90’s, she and Federico put their heads together, dug in their heels and carved out a niche for their family business in Abruzzo’s northern Val Vibrata.
Specializing in premium, sustainably sourced leather handbags, the couple honed in on quality, design and innovation, and on meeting the rigorous standards demanded by Made in Italy. That winning strategy has turned their artisan studio into a small but mighty enterprise sought-after by private labels and discerning clientele from around the world. For MILANER women, we offer three diverse styles customizable to meet your needs and reflect your unique personality. Each handbag is a mastery of Italian craftsmanship and, why not, the silver lining of a love story too.
