Poppi Italian Leather Travels to Milano to Shop Fall Shows
Buon Giorno means good morning in Italian. And In just one week Poppi Italian Leather will be shopping the fall shows Milano. We feel very fortunate for the opportunity to visit the beautiful country of Italy and bring back beautiful leathers, clothes and accessories for our customers.
Shopping the bag and shoe show
My schedule is very busy in Italy this year. First of all, Poppi will be shopping the fall shows in Milano, specifically the bag and shoe show. We then travel by train to Florence to visit Bruno and Simone Di Pomo, father/son duo in the leather business. From there, on to Deruta to tour the Majolica Factory (a new line Poppi will be showcasing this fall). After a short side trip to Bologna we return to Milano for the Apparel show.
I have set aside one day to do a little sightseeing in Bologna with a 2.5 mile walking tour of the city. Bologna is the lively, historic capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, in northern Italy. The Piazza Maggiore is a sprawling plaza lined with arched colonnades, cafes and Renaissance structures. Most of all, I look forward to finding a new “ristorante”, to savor the Italian food, sip lovely red wines and sample “real” gelato every night. Bellissima! http://www.initaly.com/regions/erm/bolognaalbm.htm
“Made in Italy” Top grain Leather Tote
Consider yourself worldly? Then you will likely appreciate the lovely “Made in Italy” top grain leather tote. it’s available in two colorways, dark chocolate trimmed in cognac or cognac trimmed in dark chocolate. The hand buffed organic veg-tanned leather is sumptuous. As a result when the leather ages it takes on the patina of your life. The bag sports one handle with a long detachable and adjustable shoulder strap. There is a pocket on the outside of the bag for quick storage. The inside is multi-functional with divider, side zip pockets and open pockets for storage of cell phones or other small electronics.

Kick off September with the new cardi!
Let’s kick off this September with a new cardigan from the Italian fashion line of Monica Yong. The cardi has become a key outerwear piece this fall, warm and stylish, its perfect for cooler fall days. Dress it up or wear it in a slightly disheveled way. Forget the jacket or denim, the cardigan is the preferred layering piece of choice. The easiest way to wear the cardigan is over straight-leg jeans and a t-shirt. Or tuck it into high-waist trousers for a slimmer silhouette. https://poppiitalianleather.com/clothes/cardigan-sweater-round-neck-with-pockets.html
Saluti my friends, stay well!
