It is difficult to describe a company that has been on the market for over 50 years, because there is the risk of neglecting the details that have determined its growth and the reputation it has developed over time.
We started our business under the LUIGIRE brand.
We have grown by creating leather items outside the canons of normal leather goods, which have reached far beyond their traditional use thanks to the addition of fascination and uniqueness.
The ongoing search for special skins such as natural cowhide, the use of precious leathers and precious materials, the workmanship and the saddlery-type hand stitching, which are in a way our "trademark", have permitted us to work with the most beautiful boutiques in Italy over the years...
...It was in the nineteen-eighties that our products were noticed by the owner of "LES COPAINS" who contacted us to give life to what was to become a long and fruitful period of cooperation.
In 1984, the LUIGIRE brand was replaced with the current RE ARTÚ brand.
Thus a new pathway of collaboration opened up with the most important national and international brands; to name just a few - Lanvin, Dior, Armani, Loro Piana, Escada, Paul Shark, Iceberg, and Cavalli...
...The demands of the modern market have now stimulated us to take a new step forwards and turn towards the world of internet as well.
With our website we therefore want to help you discover the world of leather goods and craftsmanship through our eyes and let you to explore the painstaking attention to detail and passion for handmade products that have always characterised our products.
Luigi often remarks that Re Artù is small, but at the same time extremely large. We are actually a small-sized enterprise located at the gateway to Florence, a company of craftsmen rather than mere leather workers. It is precisely this fact that distinguishes our production from the standardised type of leather working and allows us to respond to the most diverse needs, following our customers in all their requests and requirements, and when necessary, also assisting them with proposals and research that reach far beyond their demands.
We are able to carry out any type of work, with any type of leather or fabric, preferring handcrafted techniques, such as hand stitching, saddlery-type stitching, and weaving, etc. With our belts, key-rings, bags, small leather goods, but also gadgets and clothing accessories, thanks to being a multi-purpose company, Re Artù is able to adapt and satisfy your every requirement.
