Il Ponte Pelletteria S.p.a – The Bridge
II Ponte Pelletteria S.p.A. was established in 1969 in Scandicci, then just a small town at the gates of Florence.
Founded by five partners, the company has always distinguished itself in the production of bags and accessories with a characteristic style. From the great artisan workshop on the outskirts of Florence, high-quality products were produced with fine materials and unique processes.
The value of “Made in Italy” – the typical workmanship of the Florentine bottega – was combined with an aesthetic sense that is definitely “English”. Thus emerged an Anglo-Tuscan style which would serve as an inspiration to many in the later years.
Leather was the undisputed protagonist in the collections of those early years, marketed under the trademark of The Bridge using only full-grain leather of national origin. The best leather is worked according to the most stringent craftsmanship techniques, starting from the tanning stage through dyeing and polishing with amber rollers.
The result is leather that is soft and elastic. Its vivid, brilliant appearance acquires, with the passing of time, that lived-in and unmistakable charm.
This is a characteristic of all the products of The Bridge. In 1987, we moved to the actual plants in the productive district of Scandicci.

Apple Pie was born as a website in 2010. As the market was very pink, blue and traditional at the time, Apple Pie was founded to give babies (and their families) some cooler and more colorful options for baby gear, furniture, toys and apparel.
Apple Pie opened its first brick and mortar boutique in Milan, Italy in September 2014 in the hip residential neighborhood next to Sempione Park and the Arco della Pace monument. The mission was simple: we offer the best of what’s out there for new parents Super stores and websites offer tons of goods but they lack style and perspective.
Apple Pie works hard to make shopping simpler and narrow down the options for new parents. This means that we put together an awesome selection of designers from all over the world, amazing gifts and toys, a limited and hand chosen selection of the best gear, strollers and furniture and lots of service options to make it convenient to shop.
In other words, we do all the homework so that moms & dads don’t have to!. .
