Roberta Gandolfi

The Roberta Gandolfi brand is a tale of powerful women. Roberta and Silvia are sisters and the third generation of women in their family who have dedicated themselves to the art of bag making, each generation adding something new to the craft.

While headquartered in Castel Maggiore in Bologna, Italy, the Gandolfi sisters draw inspiration from across the world. “I look for subtle sensations to be infused in each phase of the creative process, and I look for them everywhere—from the little things that happen every day under my eyes, to the many places where I live,” says Roberta Gandolfi. “Beauty and good taste are everywhere, you have just to observe and let yourself be inspired.”

The designs incorporate nature-inspired textures and manual finishes for an heirloom-quality bag built to withstand the demands of everyday life.
