You will find Florence overflowing with leather stores . . . Most of them will say that their jackets are made in Italy but beware of low prices, a sure sign that they are not really from Italy or that they are made with inferior leather.
If you have the time you can look into a store called Pierotucci, not only are their products made in Florence with Italian tanned leathers but if you come on a week day you can walk around the workshop and watch them make their bags. It is interesting and suitable for all ages.
