Since 1979, the love and the passion Ugo Severino has had for fine leather goods and his attention to detail have been at the roots of Il Kuoio.
Meticulous, creative and skillful, Severino gave rise to what today is a prominent Italian designer handbag company. Every seam expertly curated by master craftsmen, every nuance of leather, every detail reveals the dedication and passion that goes into the business.
Today the business is managed and run by the three sons, Vincenzo, Giovanni and Sergio. They remain responsible for the whole operation from the initial designs through to manufacture and distribution.
The Il Kuoio team have maintained their traditional processes of vegetable leather tanning by successfully teaching the skill and passion down from generation to generation.
All Il Kuoio products carry the trademark “Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana” which guarantees the finest vegetable tanned leathers, from the Tuscan region. This environmentally friendly and natural production process gives a soft, strong and unique finish that allows their handbags to age beautifully.
