8 Reasons Why You Should Shop With Us

At Alexandra de Curtis we know what it takes to provide excellent products and a service that makes the shopping experience satisfying, safe and enjoyable. So if you’re still deciding, here are our top eight reasons why you should shop with us.

1. Handmade Guarantee

Our entire manufacturing process takes place in Italy, from the initial prototype to the final product. Italy is synonymous with quality craftsmanship and our shoes and bags are meticulously handcrafted in Pisa and Rome respectively, by a team of skilled artisans who have been working with leather for over 50 years.

2. Premium Lightweight Leather

Our handbags are made with our signature Italian lightweight leather. The leather is bonded with a suede lining that keeps its shape over time, making it very resistant and practical; the perfect companion for a busy lifestyle. Our ballet flats are made with soft Italian lambskin leather; ideal for dynamic feet that are always on the move.

3. Understated Italian Style

Inspired by the impeccable style of Italy’s best-dressed women and modern style icons, our handbags are simple, sophisticated and practical styles designed with beauty and function in mind.

I think of minimalism as the stripping away of all unnecessary elements and focusing on what needs to be there. While our designs appear simple on the outside, a lot of thought and time goes into the development of each piece.

6. Our Monogramming Service

There’s something quite special about owning something that feels like it belongs to you and only you. Once you’ve picked the bag or accessory you love and the colour you want, we can’t think of a more classic finishing touch than adding your initials to your leather bag. It’s also a great way to make a gift that much more unique. Contact us to find out if our monogramming service is available for the item you’ve chosen.
