A dreamy watercolour. That’s Astore’s “Made in Italy”.The magic of Astore branded accessories. Original and unique hand-painted leather shoes and bags. Their new home? The monobrand store opened in Venice six months ago.
Astore has been designing and making fashion accessories in an artisan way since 1929. Shoes and bags in natural leather, for men and women, characterised by extreme attention to detail. A real and meticulous care obtained also thanks to the fact that Astore collections are made with traditional artisan processes. Bags, wallets, belts and shoes are created by master craftsmen from Veneto, who create “Made in Italy” products drawing inspiration from the great leather crafting tradition.
Roberto Bertacco keeps the family craftsmanship, rooted in the entrepreneurial spirit of the founder Pietro Bertacco, alive, and upholds the Astore name on the main international markets, especially on the Italian one.
The flagship of the company from Veneto is the Acquerello line: hand-painted leather bags, excellent for free time and casual clothing, always matched with shoes, wallets, belts and other accessories.
The Business line, unisex, is in hand-painted leather too, while the models called Sfinge represent a “playful” bag. In leather or fabric, they are made up of two parts, one internal and one external, available in many colours. Finally, the Venezia Color proposals in printed fabric. Postcards from Venice to wear day and night.
6 months ago, Astore’s creativity found a new home: the first Astore monobrand store. It’s located in Venice’s main shopping street, in Sestiere San Marco 4861 (Merceria del Capitello), and enhances the already magical atmosphere of the lagoon with special fashion creations. A very important investment that leads the brand to interact even more directly with its customers, and could serve as a pilot project to extend the distribution also to other cities in the next few years.
