Our history

Founded in Florence in 1989, Santipel srl evolved out of the Pelletterie Artistiche Santoni Enea craft workshop. Santipel has always produced small leather goods such as men’s and women’s wallets, key holders, diaries and, now, iPad cases.

Drawing strength from our origins and guided by a passion for innovation, we have created a mix of technology and craftsmanship, which, besides ensuring leanness, control and rationality in our production processes, enables us to offer a luxury product with the character and distinctive features of times past.

Constant investment and research into product industrialization, product layout, internal logistics, a concern and respect for the environment and worker safety has enabled us to project the concept of the “craftsperson” into the future.

Today Santipel srl has a plant of about 1,500 square metres, situated in the southern outskirts of Florence, providing direct or induced employment for about 120 workers, who are able to guarantee flexibility and excellent performance in terms of quality, production lead time but also the capacity to deliver a high-precision modelling service and limited production runs.
