Founded in Vicenza in July 2003, Mediterranea was conceived and developed as a virtuous model for the creation and distribution of accessories in the fashion world, with a proven expertise in the development of bags and small leather goods.
The inspiration and know-how of Mediterranea are deeply rooted in two distinct and essential elements: the managerial experiences of the cofounders, that covered important roles in multinational companies, dealing in clothing and footwear and the well-known craftsmanship and productive capability in manufacturing leather goods of the southern part of Italy and it's artisanal districts.
Mediterranea develops and designs its collections internally, through specific design teams assigned to different brands. This creative department is formed by professional people coming from long experiences in the sportswear field, coordinated by a brand management specifically conceived for each brand.
The bags and small leather goods department is managed directly by the headquarter in Naples, where there is a product office and a specialized pattern maker. Prototypes and industrialization phases are conducted internally, while the research of the materials is assigned to the creative division of each of the brands.
Extreme care is dedicated to the research of leathers, strictly of Italian origin and silver or golden rate LWG certified, that means obtained in the most extreme precautions for the containment of pollution and waste of water and energy.
The design team continuously work on new trends, new ways of using leather, handmade treatments, washings, garment dyeing processes in collaboration with laundries of proven expertise.
From the development of prototyping, the production is conducted internally through the steps of cutting and assembly. This last step is managed by the owned productive bases in Naples and Moldova.
All our products are Made in Italy.
