Luigi Locati began his trade of craftsmanship with embroidery of bible covers, located in the heart Milan’s artisan quarter. His passion then extended to Petit Point, expanding his business and area of expertise. A precious gift from the wife of Luigi added a new specialty,a sophisticated loom that produced stunning weaving patterns of fabric, known as the Mesh technique. The Smocking technique was later introduced, applying it in a new modern way, giving a unique look to the handbags of Locati. The Locati Dynasty continues with the same passion and attention to detail that began over one-hundred years ago in a little handcraft shop in Via Sambuco.
