Gabrielecorto Moltedo was born into a family of designers and raised as an apprentice to the trade of artisan--crafted leather. What really drives him is the passion for creating bags of superior quality that reflect his unique take on art and life. Each piece is individually handmade in his Florentine headquarters, and they represent the outcome of a thorough process of research, styling and creation of both forms and materials.A native of the Veneto region and New York City, Corto Moltedo's aesthetics are deeply rooted in his hybrid nature as a city -dweller and a country- gentleman. In merging tradition with innovation, he is environmentally conscious and remains fascinatingly grounded to the unbreakable bond between the old, the evergreen and the new. The final result is easily conceived: Corto Moltedo’s unique, completely handmade bags are a haven of the eclectic, the dreamy conceptual and the cutting--edge.
