They started by making women’s leather bags and later began to manufacture professional bags and travel items such as men’s leather bags, briefcases, messenger bags, backpacks, travel bags and small leather accessories.

With the help of his sons, Mauro and Andrea, who fitted perfectly in with the company, the founder was able to focus on the research and development side while his sons took over manufacturing and production.

Del Giudice also manufactures bespoke and custom bags for the most discerning clientele.

Customers can have their own bag made by choosing from different models, leathers and colors; they are also able to manufacture bespoke bags using patterns or photos provide by their clientele.

All the products are manufactured in their workshop in Rome, using carefully selected Italian leathers and materials of the highest quality.
