    Question Leather shopping

    Hello,

    I went to Florence for the second time and this last time I bought leather purses from a popular market (streets stands).

    I wonder if I can buy some units online and ship to Germany, since my friends loves those. Could you share a website of a leather fabric?

    Thank you very much!
    Flávia

    Several on our list of some of the better known names have websites, take a look:
    https://www.visitflorence.com/what-t...-florence.html

    If you kept the receipt for what you bought, you could search for their name and see if they have a website. Many of the stands in the markets are for actual shops nearby.

    I don't want to disappoint that today the majority of Tuscan leather tanners are actually Chinese. They are very skilled but with globalisation it is ever harder to find a truly original product. If this is what you want you have to expect to pay for it.
