Founded in Scandicci, Italy in 1969 the Il Ponte Pelleteria company created 'The Bridge' brand in 1975 to cater to the luxury leather goods market. Ever since The Bridge has been a by-word for affordable luxury and quality leather goods.
With a blend of traditional and modern manufacturing skills employed, The Bridge create leather goods which are both functional and beautifully constructed. The use of locally sourced full hide leathers which are tanned using vegetable matter ensures a soft, supple leather which is not only luxurious to the touch but has a glowing sheen hard to mimic with chemical tanning processes
Only the best quality threads are employed for stitching in The Bridge products. The threads, which are sourced from suppliers in Germany, are acknowledged to be not only good looking but have unsurpassed anti-break properties - a problem with less well constructed leather items.
The Bridge now employ over 70 people producing quality, affordable leather products including briefcases, bags and accessories in a state-of-the-art facility in the Scandicci industrial district in Tuscany, where The Bridge employ not only workshops, but offices and quality control facilities to ensure your purchase will last for years to come.
We stock one of the largest ranges in the UK of Bridge bags, bridge purses, bridge wallets, bridge briefcases, bridge handbags, bridge leather goods, and bridge accessories
