About Il bisonte

Il Bisonte was founded in 1970 in Florence, Italy by Wanny Di Filippo and has become a cult favorite brand for luxury leather goods made using traditional Italian craftsmanship. The brand uses only the finest leathers that are vegetable tanned in Tuscany and then hand crafted into simple yet elegant bag shapes by master artisans. Il Bisonte is best known for its shoulder bags like the Anabel, Iside, and Firenze styles which feature the brand's signature slouchy silhouette. All production still takes place in Tuscany using sustainable practices and materials that ensure each bag will last for years and patina beautifully over time.

While not an instantly recognizable status brand name, Il Bisonte has earned a devoted following among leather goods aficionados and those looking for a high quality investment piece. The vegetable tanned leathers develop a gorgeous patina that reflects the owner's individual lifestyle and allow each bag to take on a life of its own. Il Bisonte's elegant hobo and shoulder bag shapes keep to a timeless aesthetic well-suited to everyday wear. Prices reflect the impeccable Italian craftsmanship and fine leathers used in production rather than big marketing budgets. For those looking for luxe leather goods that only get better with age, Il Bisonte is an under the radar brand worthy of consideration.
