All of the design, modeling and realization of final product happens together, within the same artisan workshop -- nothing is farmed out elsewhere. This allows Daniel & Bob to create a synergy and prompt feedback among all the different production phases.
Daniel & Bob is nurturing and guarding rare skills that are becoming hard to find and pass on, and that is why the company gives the utmost importance to the talent and professionalism of their artisans who are capable to create a perfect union between creativity and flexibility.
Daniel & Bob originated in Ferrara in the early seventies thanks to the initiative and creativity of two young guys, Daniele and Roberto. Both led by the same passion for leather, they started to create belts and bags with an original and naive flavor, much appreciated by their friends and acquaintances.
After some months one of their friends, Andrea Bortolotti, fascinated by this artisan work, decided to join them. Later, more friends were added to this group.
A sort of “Leather Club” was formed and very soon the word-of-mouth rewarded their talent with an increasing number of orders and requests. More than anybody else the one who truly believed in the potentiality of this project was Andrea Bortolotti who, in 1975, decided to leave university and convert this improvised hobby in a real professional activity.
He decided to keep the name Daniel & Bob as recognition for his two friends who first started down this path.
From the very beginning Daniel & Bob bags and belts stood out for their quality, craftsmanship and the originality of leathers that were bought in an antique tannery close to Santa Croce sull’Arno in Tuscany. Quality and variety of products became distinctive elements of Daniel & Bob together with its rare and skilled human capital that supported it and let it grow and establish itself as a unique company for style and quality in the artisan leather goods market.
Proud of its origins and strengthened by the passion and enthusiasm that have characterized its story, today Daniel & Bob combine the values of tradition and experience with the courage of innovation.
