If you thought that Louis Vuitton is the only bag company that produced luxurious and durable bags, you were dead wrong. Pineider was founded in Florence in 1774 and is one of the top European luxury brands that makes gorgeous hand-made leather goods. Part of Pineider's charm is from its obscurity as it is known only by a handful. When I saw these travel bags from Pineider, I fell in loveeee~~~. They are SO handsome! Raw vintage meets gentleman, these bags evoke the image of a strong edgy maturity that gets my heart pounding. The only drawback, I'm guessing, is that these heavyweight champions weigh in at 2kg to 3.5kg (4.4 lbs to 7.7lbs), which is heavier than the Chloe Paddington. In any case, Pineider's pricing is reasonable compared to other hand-made brands such as Bottega Veneta and Hermes. Also, Pineider carries a full range of stately briefcases, handbags, small leather goods, and stationery.
