A new brand is joining us at dooney.com!

Roberta Pieri, a family-run label based in Florence, Italy, is now available for you to shop on our site. We’re excited to tell you how we came to know the Roberta Pieri team, and more importantly, all about their handbags.

Our design studio is nestled in the Tuscan countryside just outside of Florence. It’s where we source a lot of inspiration for new collections, and where many of our handbags are designed. At the studio, we’re surrounded by some of the best European materials, brands, and designers around. One of those brands is Roberta Pieri.

There’s no doubt that Roberta Pieri’s handmade totes caught our eye. Their distinct patterns and convertible silhouettes are hard to miss. But it’s the brand’s philosophy that really resonates with us. The family behind the brand believes that every woman should have what they call a “second bag”:the bag for all seasons that you keep by the door, that’s always ready to go no matter where you’re headed. Inspired by this belief, the brand creates multi-functional, mutli-size totes that are simple, yet elegant and can appeal to anyone. And mission accomplished–the brand is worn by women from Florence to Hong Kong.

Totes are one of the most versatile silhouettes you can find. It’s one of the only silhouettes you can carry to both work and the beach. Our tote bags for women can double as diaper bags or overnight bags. Their roomy interior means you don’t have to sacrifice anything you wanted to bring with you for the day.

Everyone needs a dependable tote. The Roberta Pieri team knows this. That’s why they designed their totes to have functional, practical features. Inside are incredible pocket system and a convenient clip for your keys. Outside are zipper closures and lightweight straps that secure your belongings.

The Robertina tote is their iconic silhouette. It comes in three sizes: mini, small, and large. The mini and small sizes have an adjustable, removable strap that can be worn crossbody, along with leather handles to be carried by hand. Petite yet roomy, they’re great sizes for daily wear. The large offers lengthy straps that stay put on your shoulder. It’s the generous size you think of first when you hear the word “tote.”

Each silhouette is incredibly lightweight (even the large!), thanks to the innovative Italian nylon. And we love that the Vacchetta leather trim is just as light. We think you’ll love it, too.
