The company, a family business, begun when founder Francesco Girimonte decided to relocate with his family to Tuscany in 1950.
After a brief experience in a small artisan workshop, in 1951 Girimonte decided to create his own company and sell his own products.
It was in this period that the very first handbags in straw, leather and exotics were made by small groups of experienced master artisans, at the time, very present in this territory.
The company grew very quickly, with requests becoming increasingly important, so much so, that son, Giuseppe, born in 1939, decided to create a production company in 1970, capable of working with important brands recognized worldwide.
In the year 2000, the company was passed down to son Massimiliano, born 1971, whom after spending the majority of his childhood in the factory, decided to completely dedicate his career to this activity.
The company has worked, and still collaborates today, with some of the most notorious brands such as Gianfranco Ferré, Just Cavalli, Roberto Cavalli, Karl Lagerfeld, Faconnable, Pierre Balmain, Bally, Tyler Alexandra, Alexander Wang, Roberta di Camerino, Emilio Pucci, developing first lines for both men’s and women’s, participating in runway shows, and working with precious materials such as python, crocodile, lizard.
The passion to create and develop new products has been transmitted through the generations. In fact, Francesco, Massimiliano’s son, born 1995, has been working in the family business already for quite some time, perfecting pattern-making on CAD.
The objective of Firenze & Moda, is to offer a complete service, utilizing the experience and the professionalism of a family that has worked in this sector for 4 generations.
