Crafting A Legacy Of Quality
VICUS's products are meticulously and intentionally crafted by hand to ensure the highest quality and durability to a level that they cannot be replicated by an industrial machine.
Thanks to the completely handcrafted process, every single product is authentic, unique, and made to last. Each manufactured product is made by a single person, from start to finish, from the cutting to the finishing process.
Ethically Sourced Materials
VICUS’s products are made exclusively by the finest and more traditional Italian leather, which is the vegetable-tanned leather of Toscana, Italy. The leather I use does not have toxic substances for humans or the environment. It is ecological, biodegradable, and environmentally sustainable.
From the eco-ethical choice of using organic material to the sustainable approach of crafting made to order accessories, I attempt to offer transparency and sustainability in every step I do.
Founded On Passion, Guided By Dedication
VICUS was born in 2015 when I decided to quit my office work and start following my passion for craftsmanship. Everything started from my living room transformed into an atelier for leather working., where it took place a small bench and few hand tools.
Since the first day, the goal has been that of giving shapes to materials and colors, using the original unification of a modern but timeless aesthetic conception with one of the oldest handcrafting traditions.

For every product sold I plant trees
I care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why I'm thrilled to share that I'm partnering with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every item sold.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. I'm honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
Reap What You Sow
I also collaborate with Treedom, who finance farmers who want to plant trees, supporting their work in the early years, when trees are not yet productive.
I am a member of the community, and, every month I adopt trees, at the same time I plant trees for who is interested in this sustainable project. If you want to be part of it, click here and buy a tree, or gift one to someone you love.
