Five craftsmen put their ideas together in 1969 on the outskirts of Florence and formed The Bridge. The name comes from the bridge that links the company’s then native town of Scandicci to nearby Florence. The Bridge has always distinguished itself from the very beginning by its “English style” and top quality products made with excellent materials and unique processing techniques handed down by Florentine master craftsmen. Each and every product that comes out of the large artisan workshop in Scandicci (province of Florence) is of extraordinarily high quality and is handmade just like in the past, following the handicraft tradition of Florentine workshops. Never-ending research is at the heart of our philosophy. In this way we can guarantee products that are increasingly lightweight and practical, but totally observe tradition. The top quality of the raw materials, time, care and passion with which our products are created makes them beautiful and unique.
The leathers used are all rigorously selected from the best tanneries in Italy and abroad to ensure their quality and adaptability over time.
Only full grain leather processed from the tanning stage with strict handcrafted techniques is selected for our products. Every single leather is dyed by hand and they are all polished by passing under amber rollers.
