A History of Craftsmanship

Bruno and Poppi
Poppi Italian Leather Owner (Rececca Calhoun) with the Bruno Carlo family

With three generations of thoughtful design and attention to detail, the Bruno Carlo family has taken our breath away. Bruno Carlo is an Italian clothing accessories brand based in Ventimiglia (IM), founded in the 1970s by the Bruno family. The brand focuses on the production of leather gloves, hats, t-shirts and complementary accessories (stoles, ponchos, capes, scarves and caps) in precious yarns (wool, cashmere) and noble fabrics (silk, linen and cotton) with lines for both women and men. The selection of materials is the result of careful research.

On the one hand, there is the cornerstone of loyalty to the historic foundations of quality and craftsmanship typical of the best Made in Italy, and, on the other, constant attention to continuous evolution of style. All products are made by hand with carefully selected raw materials.

Bruno Carlo- Brought to you!

Imagine yourself running to your car on a brisk, fall morning. Your fingers should be freezing, but you are wearing your handcrafted lambskin leather gloves from Bruno Carlo. The gloves are lined with wool and some of the softest leather you have ever felt. We have these gloves in a mixture of colors, including brown, black and red. Our newest leather gloves include more delicate detailing and fun splashes of color. You (and your fingers!) will be so thankful that you stopped into our store here in Rochester, MN.

PonchoWhether you are looking to keep yourself warm on a crisp night out on the town or on a blustery day, Poppi Italian Leather has the cape for you. For example, our Italian Cape Trimmed in Fur By Bruno Carlo comes in a variety of colors. It is made of 100% Lana Wool and is One Size Fits All. Raccoon fir trims the neckline and compliments the stunning flow of the cape. You can find yours on our Poppi Italian Leather website, linked here.Bruno carlo hat and cape
