 ROMA

Versatile & timeless, Roma leatherr backpack is designed for urban men, both efficient at work and at ease in the Dolce Vita. 

Rome, surrounded by its seven hills, shows at least as many sides.

Between its glorious past and a refusal to go for frantic globalization, between the restlessness of a jammed city centre and quite secret alternative circles, between failing public transport and a life style always akin to la Dolce Vita, this so peculiar post-war atmosphere…  

Rome should be lived in multiple ways, she is strong-tempered like our bag, and the eternal city nickname she inherited, fits perfectly.

WORKFORCE & MATERIALS

The narrow and jumbled Napoli streets are a home to the heart of Italian craftsmanship. We searched them to find the best suited workshops for the complexity of our bags and accessories, Paolo Bari. 

Mostly in family circles, our partners were able to combine tradition of the artisan and technological up-to-dateness in order to convey the best…

LEATHER

 

Each and every bag for man is made from full grain leather, from European grown cows, treated with respect. Those skins then go through vegetal tanning, in respect of nature and tradition. Finally the leather colour or hue is obtained through semi aniline treatment in order not to weaken our leather bags while keeping the rough touch and feel of the hide.

SESTERSIUS

Every Paolo Bari item is the fruit of a long and meticulously painstaking work by three different artisans, just 20 minutes away from the heart of Napoli.  

The original pattern was first hand drawn by an artisan. In the second workshop, this pattern was then placed in a silicone disc in order to undergo heat pressure. In this disc a mixing of various molten metals is being hand-poured, to get the first, untreated pieces.  

Only in a third workshop will the polishing, the colouring and the finishing touches be brought to the unique Paolo Bari sestersius.

FABRIC

For inner lining, we created a personalised unique jacquard made near Napoli downtown by an artisan who have decades of experience. For the colour thread, we used the Paolo Bari blue and a variation of it to maintain the elegance.  

The pattern is composed of different lines and symbols. First, you can see PB face which is the brand signature as well as the name. Then, some baroque drawings refer to the Italian style. And lastly, the sun and the moon refer to the multiple faces that a man can have. Accomplished men can move forward without renouncing to any of its personality trait.

Stay true, move on.

Risks and challenges

I am surrounded by people who have lifetime experience in production, business and logistic. We are prepared to many situations and ready to react.

Nevertheless, business and production are 2 fields in which unexpected things and delays are prone to happen. Our manufacturing process relies on multiple component which must come together. And many actors are involved in it. Due to that, there is always the possibility of a slight delay.

However, I am the most determined guy you will ever see. I guarantee to give the best of me to make this production come on time and to inform you at every step of the process.

Paolo.
