Story of the Florentine Jewel
This authentic Florentine seamless leather coin purse is the historic pocket coin case that Florentines have used for over 200 years. Its history begins thanks to the creativity of the Florentine monks who invented it and started using it as a wallet. Its peculiarity is because it has no seams, which requires great skill for its realization. The traditional shape recalls the horseshoe from which its name ‘Tacco’ derives. Each piece is completely handmade, only with the best of Tuscan tanneries and dyed entirely by hand, making each piece unique. Its realization takes more than 20 days, a jewel created to last a lifetime. Object that is part of the history and the present of Florence, thanks to the local artisans who handed down its work from generation to generation.
