Rare gem

So you came to Montepulciano, Tuscany. You marvelled at the stunning scenery, drunk some of the best red wines found anywhere, tasted some of the most exquisite pecorino cheese with salami, but but but, you have not really seen Montepulciano if in doing all of those things, you have missed this shop.

A family owned business for 5 generations (I know, romantic right?) they have elevated the trade of making leather clothes and accessories to a fine art form. Not only you find here the finest leather you can find anywhere, and with all the fake stuff flooding the market this is a real problem, but most importantly you find some of the best, unique and timeless designs in the world. It is a real tribute to Italian clothe making tradition which has dominated the world.

I read a comment here that the prices are expensive. Far from it. The prices are extremely cheap if you understand what you are getting. If you don't understand, than maybe this shop is not for you - stick to GAP or Next or Walmart or something.

Finally, and very importantly, you could not find a better service from a nicer people. My wife and I bought two leather jackets. The lady in the shop (which I am sorry I didn't get her name) was so helpful and honest. Some of the items in there were her designs but not for a minute did she try to sell us something which didn't fit or wasn't right. She was just soo lovely and friendly without for a minute intruding. There was a gentleman working there too, also extremely nice and friendly. We talked for a bit and they were also kind enough to tell us about the history of their cute shop. In the end, after we had paid, the gentleman (sorry I didn't get your name) gave my wife a leather bracelet, the first prototype of its kind, which he was working on. A really beautiful one with Roman designs on it. Completely free of charge. We were so taken aback by that, people are not this nice anymore, are they? It turns out they are in this lovely shop. Not to leave me empty handed, the lovely lady gave me also another leather bracelet which was on show for sale in the shop (it cost 21 Euros); also free of charge. Amazing people, making beautiful things, living of their golden hands and beautiful spirit in a stunning city. What else do you need?

It was a pleasure to meet them.

My Favourite Leather Shop
Sep 2016 • Couples
I love good quality leather goods, particularly shoes, bags and glasses cases.

We have bought from this shop a few times and had a lovely chat with the owner, who told us that he sold "Italian Made Goods, not Chinese Italian goods"
The great benefit is that they have a website, which we buy from when we need a replacement.
Much as we would prefer to visit Cortona more often this is second best..

Quality Leather Shop
May 2016 • Couples
Maledetti is one of the finest leather shops I have visited. From wallets to bags to leather bound journals to so much more, you have choices to make. Having bought many items here, I am impressed by the quality of there products. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful.

And, is there an aftershave that has the smell of leather goods?

Best quality of Italian leather goods I've come accross!
Jun 2015 • Friends
This charming boutique is incredible if you are looking for really authentic leather goods. Personally, I love leather jackets so that was the main reason why I came accross this store, but I instantly fell in love, not only with the story behind it but also with the passion and openness of the workers and of the owners. Trust me, you will not regret visiting this boutique! If you get the chance, go to their store in Montepulciano. It's the oldest store in the entire city! There is also an estruscan tomb in the store to see!!
