This was our first stop when we came back to San Gimignano. The items here are exceptionally unique and well crafted. The owners are wonderful human beings. My wife and are very happy to have spent time chatting with the owners and getting the chance to purchase some leather goods before the two retire!

A Place Not To Be Missed
Oct 2017 • Couples
We were initially drawn by the unique tan leather color found all over the store and stopped in before entering the historic center of town. The owner spent time with us talking about the products that her husband and she make and cut a belt to size for me.

If you want something unique to San Gimignano, this is a great shop to explore.

beautiful handcrafted leather goods
Sep 2017 • Friends
Get them before they're gone! These bracelets, belts, handbags (men's and women's) are beautifully and meticulously hand crafted. The owner and creator was still there after we visited his shop 10 years ago. He keeps talking about retiring, so get your masterpiece now, these are one-of-a-kind bags you will not find anywhere else.

Fabulous, meticulously crafted leather goods
Aug 2017 • Couples
We returned again last week to Namsce Bazar and it's iconic and classic artisan who creates not only practical but works of art in leather. Our belts that we bought over 10 years ago still perfect. We watch this master work his magic again...
Sadly, he tells us he is considering retirement...so, word to the wise! Get in there and make your purchases...because, this will be the end of an era!

Most beautiful leather shop I have ever seen!
Sep 2016 • Couples
This small leather shop is located on your walk into the village of Gimignano. The owner was working on pieces within this shop, so that you can see them at work, making these one-of-a-kind beautiful leather treasures. The quality is unlike anything I have ever seen, and each piece is beautifully handcrafted and unique. This is worth saving your money to be able to buy a leather creation that you could never find anywhere else. We looked in many of the shops in Florence, and never found anything that matched the quality and uniqueness of these pieces.

Leather Goods I Still Dream About
Apr 2015 • Solo
A gorgeous hidden gem whose items I still cherish and look at daily. So much care and love go into each item that I feel like my purchase made me part of something special and magical.
I look at their website weekly in hopes of future purchases but I mostly dream of returning to San Gimignano and visiting this little shop again with the curly haired owner who had kind eyes that was so proud of her work and so kind to share it with me.

Find your next heirloom here

Visited Tuscany in 2013 and stumbled into to Namsce Bazar by following our noses (you can smell the leather from the street!)... Boy am I happy we did! Wonderful handcrafted leather goods ranging from bracelets and belts to doctors bags and purses, as well as everything in between. Handmade and of the finest quality (gotta love the little imperfections.. Contributes to the uniqueness and character!) Anything you purchase from here is one of those items that gets better with age. Owner is a Rick Rubin look alike and a really down to earth dude. Passionate about what he does and is aware of the time-honored tradition he follows.

If you are staying in Florence and have wheels, I highly suggest you make the drive out here to see the wonderful town, and purchase something (or things!) from Namsce Bazar. You will always remember the trip when pick up whatever you buy, and that is priceless.

Wonderful experience, great quality!
Jul 2015 • Family
This is the real deal! After finding questionable quality in Florence, it was refreshing to find legitimate, quality leather workmanship. My son and I had a lovely experience talking with the shop owner. When we walked in she was working on one of her hand created pieces and i was instantly in love with all the purses on display. I am now the proud owner of the most gorgeous purse and wallet. My son had a leather bracelet made on the spot for him and even had a photo with the owner. It was one of those spotlight moments of our trip that we will never forget.

workmanship and quality
Jul 2014 • Family
Handmade leather goods and quality workmanship. We were so lucky to have stumbled into this little shop where they still make everything themselves. No fillers in the belts and top quality leather. All of the guys were fitted for belts and they were cut and made for them, on the spot. Great owner who is passionate about what they do!
