Peter Nappi Cecilia bag

One-hundred years ago, artisan bootmaker Peter Nappi arrived from Italy to the USA, bringing with him a tradition of handcrafted boots. His craft is still being kept alive a century later, re-established in 2009 by a group of bootmakers eager to maintain the tradition. While the Peter Nappi collection still revolves strongly around the sturdy yet strapping boots that first bore its name, it also now includes various other leather dry goods such as belts, watches and bags. This Cecilia bag is made to order from high-quality calf skin and features antique brass rivets.
