Fendi Links Up With 20 Italian Artisans To Rework Its Signature Baguette Handbag

Inspired by the unique traditions of 20 different regions across Italy.

Fendi‘s “Hand in Hand” project honors the diversity and unique quality of Italian craftsmanship. In collaboration with 20 local artisans across Italy, the fashion house decided to tap ateliers from 20 different regions across Italy to rework Silvia Venturini Fendi‘s signature Baguette handbag.

“I [have developed] a special project with Italian artisans, each one selected from a different Italian region. The first example is the leather Baguette bag that was presented on the Fall/Winter 2020 to 2021 catwalk. It is made in Tuscany by a man who normally makes small leather goods all by hand in small quantities,” the designer explained in a press release. “He makes everything by himself. It’s made of vegetal leather, very natural, and there is no stitching, it’s just bonded. My aim now is to explore every Italian region and select the best artisans still working today – and then expand the project worldwide.”

Standouts include the Valle D’aosta silhouette, which is hand-woven from local natural textiles and embroidered with custom red motifs. Elsewhere, the Liguria arrives in a chich white design influenced by Campo Ligure’s medieval tradition of filigree silverwork. Meanwhile, the Emilia Romagna comes with a starry sky pattern comprised of hand-cut micro tiles, a tribute to the fabulous glass and stone mosaics of Ravenna.

Peep some of the styles above. Watch the video below to learn more about the “Hand in Hand” project and head over to Fendi’s website for more detailed information.
