Along-established, Italian-crafted brand, Felisi designs and produces collections that are truly one of a kind, with an original, exclusive style. Felisi bags are designed and crafted to last, to remain a faithful travelling companion or work colleague to the extent where they become one with their owner.
Felisi products are created using top-of-the-range leather, together with canvas or nylon in a huge variety of colours and combinations.
The Felisi crest, the hallmark that appears on every accessory crafted, belongs to the noble family from Ferrara. The tree heavy with golden apples that adorns the shield symbolises the fertility of the land owned by the family.
Felisi began life in Ferrara in 1973 as a small craft workshop. Today it has become a top-class, world-renowned firm able to boast an increasingly refined, demanding, faithful clientele that has allowed it to gain a solid foothold not only in European markets, but also in the USA and Asia, especially in Japan.
Since its inception, the cornerstone of the company has been its sound, on-going cooperation with the finest of leather artisans.
Throughout its history, the secret of Felisi’s success has been the lengthy experience of the craftswomen who have learned the trade within the company, taking on board its long-standing tradition and acquiring skills just as they might in a school or workshop.
Felisi is deeply rooted in the Ferrara area, home to both the laboratory and the factory, thus guaranteeing careful, direct supervision of each and every process and painstaking packaging of the accessories in line with the very highest of quality standards.
MADE IN FERRARA
A city that lay at the centre of the Italian Renaissance as a result of its exceptional cultural and architectural tradition, Ferrara has earned recognition from UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Within and beyond the city walls, craft activities have for centuries played a pivotal role in both the industry and culture of Ferrara.
Felisi’s lengthy experience is part and parcel of this rich industrial and cultural fabric, and the signature features of the brand have always been tradition and quality craftsmanship, the invaluable raw materials from which the company’s business and skills are shaped.
STYLE SHAPED BY HISTORY
Natural hide, today combined with modern materials and shaped by contemporary trends, is crafted by skilful hands in the same way saddles once were, making it just as hard wearing. Style is born of tradition, and this is why each Felisi article is unique, numbered so as to allow the firm to trace the type, model and year of production.
MATERIAL SHAPED BY NATURE
The material used is the primary ingredient in the process, from the vegetable-tanned leather hides to the tiniest of studs.
A small selection of long-established, tenacious suppliers with a passion for their craft provide the genuine brass parts, exclusively designed and shaped by hand for Felisi.
LEATHER SHAPED BY EXPERIENCE
The experience of a small craft workshop that has evolved in Ferrara, bringing innovation and youth together with the maturity and experience that can only be acquired and shaped with time. The skilful hands of the women who work here move gracefully around the laboratory to a melody performed with virtuoso precision, ensuring the thickness of the leather is just right, smoothing the corners and supervising the finishes, threading the needles through the right holes with a dexterity and expertise only tradition can bestow.
