Número 10 is the creator of Italian Alberto Mondini, a craftsman who has been working as a top notch artisan with his hands and cleverness in leather for more than 40 years. His endless dedication and his passion for leather is the consequence of an honoured and faithful tradition that has fulfilled Albertos life over the generations. When this genetic heritage knocked his turn, it translated into a 100% Italian honesty and discipline of working ‘out-of-the-box’ designs into outstanding functional creations.
“The intention is to produce bags with unmistakable personality, each specimen processed and dyed by hand, just like it was done by the ancient Tuscan leather craftsmen. The goal is to create accessories that come into people’s lives and become necessary, a milestone, just like something we dearly treasure. The objective will only be reached when we think about those models and items that are forgotten by ourselves in the closet for a few years (but also for a couple of decades) and when we find them again, they are still fresh and current.”
