    Beautiful, high quality coat!
    Before I left for my trip, I researched leather stores, and La Pelle was the first one I saved to my trip list. I worked with Erin, and got a beautiful red leather reversible coat, love the bright red color! I also went back a few days later and found a great pair of red croc loafers, on sale to boot! The owners of the shop are very nice, and pay a lot of attention to detail.

    There's a reason they have 5 stars.
    A friend recommended I visit La Pelle, noting it was "the BEST leather shop in Florence" and I took the recommendation with a grain of salt because I naïvely assumed that any leather that came from Florence was great. My experience here was exceptional, and I have Erin (pictured below) to thank. Erin, who is from the States, has been working at the shop for some time alongside the owner and just a few other employees. She greeted us right when we walked in, and led us upstairs to the women's section, where she helped to educate me on the styles and fit of their lovely jacket and blazer selection. She pulled a handful of coats for me, carefully selecting the appropriate size and fit for my body type. After I found something for myself, she helped me shop for my sister (who was not with us), and Erin took the time to collect as many details as she could to help me select the perfect jacket. The jackets were carefully and neatly wrapped and packaged, and Erin made sure that we got the tax forms necessary for VAT refunds, which only enhanced the overall experience. The leather is soft and gorgeous, and you will not regret even just stopping in to see the beautiful craftsmanship.

    Wonderful Experiance!
    Amazing shop in Florence! We received the highest level of personal attention while shopping - Enzo is a delight! He helped me get just the right size for my python leather shoes and they so soft and beautiful (as is my matching purse)! I know I will have these pieces in my closet for many, many years! A must visit for true Italian leather goods!

    Already dreaming of my next visit
    I visited Florence last October and did my research before coming knowing that not all leather places in the city are created equal. I found the great reviews recommending the quality, craftsmanship, and service of La Pelle and after visiting can truly say they are magnificent. My experience was wonderful! I stopped in to treat myself on my 30th birthday and a lady (I wish I could remember her name) helped me select a style, color, and size that suited me. I'm very short and needed the sleeves altered. I made my purchase and the owners took measurements and they were able to adjust the sleeves for me overnight since I was leaving the following day. The jacket total was about 400 euros but so worth it if you're planning to splurge and treat yourself vs. buying a cheap alternative at the market. The detailing and quality are beautiful and I am reminded of my wonderful experience every time I wear it and the leather smell is heavenly. I cannot wait to come back to Florence in the future to make my next purchase!

    Best leather shop in Florence
    La Pelle is one of the best shops in Florence for your leather goods. This husband and wife team have been in business for 40 years. High quality products with lovely service. I bought a jacket at their store 9 years ago that looks perfect still. This trip my daughter in law bought a lovely jacket that she will have for many years!

    EXCELLENT LEATHER JACKETS & Excellent Customer Service!
    The husband and wife who own this shop do an impeccable job with finding you a perfect jacket to fit your body shape! They have been in business since 1983! So they have a lot of experience! I bought a jacket in 2017 & it fit great! My hubby went this September to look for a leather jacket & it fits really good. He tried on several. The first one Sonia handed him was the one he bought. He even had the sleeves shortened a little. They have the best customer service! Sonia is the best at knowing what will look good on you! She has a great eye for fit! They also have very nice people who work for them who are fluent in English & Italian. And they are honest and have excellent quality items. This place is a Rick Steves recommendation for many, many years.

    Fabulous Leather Coats
    We searched a few stores for leather coats. We found some nice ones, but they were far too expensive. Finally, we went to La Pelle and were very pleasantly surprised. My husband and I both found leather coats that we really loved and for a very good price. (We weren’t the only ones-while we were there, at least 2 other couples came in to pick up their own coats.) We both needed the sleeves altered but they told us that was no problem, especially as we were leaving in 2 days. Four hours later we found out that our flight to leave was canceled and we had to rebook on one leaving the next morning! La Pelle then showed us what great customer service they have as they arranged to have the alterations done immediately. We ran back to the store and were able to pick up 2 coats that fit perfectly and that we will be proud to wear. We will be telling our friends to shop here.

    Fantastic leather coats
    First trip to Florence and it would have not been complete without an italian leather coat. After some research I found La Pelle and am so glad we did! The service was stellar, selection was fantastic, and the price was reasonable for such amazing quality. A fabulous gem of a store and I could not have been happier!

I was looking for a leather jacket. Maybe leather shoes. I didn’t know. They had the coolest hand painted leather jacket in the window so I walked in. It was hot. I was sweaty and felt guilty trying on their beautiful jackets but the owner was so sweet. I tried on a few coats but the one in the window fit like a glove and was my favorite purchase during my time in Italy. My whole closet at home smells like their shop and I love it. They are celebrating their 40th anniversary in business, you can’t go wrong here.

Only buy leather from this store! We bought 2 jackets at Jimmys yesterday and we paid double the price for the same jackets.
This was by far the most honest leather shop we saw!
