Gaja Banchelli

by Danilo Brunetti

Chic and Unique

Hidden down one of the loveliest backstreets in Rome, the boutique of Gaja Banchelli tempts with original purses and bags that are made entirely by hand by Tuscan artisans with rich, natural materials. Each creation is a work of art, enchanting, refined, and crafted in fresh and innovative shapes. But what really sets Banchelli’s bags apart is the embellishment of a jeweled detail: an elegant buckle featuring a star sh, seahorse, cat, other object, or simply the wearer’s initial, adorns the front of each bag for a unique and individualized look. Best of all, these buckles are interchangeable between bags, and can even be removed entirely and worn on a belt. Originality in design, attention to detail, and quality of material are the three pillars of the brand’s philosophy. From retro to modern, from refined sophistication to trend-setting style, in short, the brand looks to the future without forgetting the traditions that have made Italian craftsmanship renowned on the world stage.
