Piquadro specialises in innovative business bags and accessories, distinguished by a high degree of functionality and a high-performance, recognisable design – the ultimate expression of Italian elegance and originality. Indeed, Piquadro is an Italian brand, exemplified by the quality of its leather and sensitivity of its design. By its passion, creativity and informal yet professional sense of style. By the spirit of the brand, which lies in the concept-inspired ‘tech-inside’ design of each and every item. Yet for Piquadro, functionality goes beyond high-tech accessories and finishing touches. It also means new materials, new tests to verify reliability, and new interior organisation solutions to make items ever more convenient and useful. Thanks to a select choice of materials, construction and functionalities, Piquardo products represent high quality and reliability. A Piquardo bag is an intelligent accessory for an ever busier, more hectic professional life – engineered for business.
All Piquadro products are the result of careful design. The company has various patents in recognition of the numerous technical/functional innovations implemented. Even the smallest detail is researched and designed by an internal team of designers who know and interpret the brand’s values. The development of increasingly new solutions and the search for the unusual in design and technology is the result of constant research on materials and trends, often in collaboration with the most important design schools in Italy and abroad. For Piquadro, the creativity of youth is an important source of inspiration. Attention to new talent is expressed in the promotion of competitions that give young designers the opportunity to work on special cases, demonstrating their own potential.
Piquadro continues the centuries-old Italian tradition of leather work, with a modern and original interpretation. Piquadro products combine craftsmanship, high quality leathers and attention to detail with the brand’s three distinctive values: design, functionality and technology. The exclusively Italian leathers are carefully selected by expert technicians, with a preference for the Tuscan tanning district whose ancient tradition makes it the most famous and prestigious in the world. Carefully treated to highlight the texture and prevent wear, they are combined with the latest generation technological fabrics to create products with recognizable and essential beauty. Piquadro subjects its products to rigorous inspections in order to guarantee excellent quality and avoid health risks due to the use of improper materials. In an advanced test laboratory, specialized machines test both the product and the raw materials to verify their resistance, structural integrity, water resistance and non-toxicity.
