Ethnique Co. it started in 2017 after a long summer in Tuscany where we were meeting with leather manufactures, learning from them the art and the history of leather, which begun in Florence in the middle age. We decided to start with a single simple model of bag, the “Carolinda”, which is inspired by a classic italian tote bag that we partially redesigned it performing some customizations, in order to improve the usability of the model and the materials within time, version after version.
Our firm is now based in Florence . We sketch what we have in mind and we share ideas, we go to the leather shops to purchase the best genuine leather and we bring it to the manufactures to make a sample and when are satisfied we start the production.
