We start with an initial consultation regarding your bag collection. Let's verify the shapes, measures, colours, materials and accessories. This first step is essential, it allows you to clarify all your ideas.

Then we proceed with bag pattern-making and we create a micro-fibre / paper bag prototype that allows us to verify the bag's dimensions and design before producing it in leather / non-leather material.

We create a first bag prototype sewn by hand or an arm machine. It allows us to check the sewing process, the performance of the materials, supports, reinforcements and metal accessories.

I feel fortunate to have found the Association Bagartus. The teacher Lorella Ceccanti is a great professional who, with great humility and generosity, infinite patience and extreme competence, taught me much more than I would have expected without sparing herself. Her teachings have proved invaluable to continue my craft business. I am grateful, and I can't thank her enough.
Thanks to Damian, another great professional, for his beautiful photos and excellent business advice. This association/school is highly recommended whether you are already in the industry or want to go into it, maybe discovering a new hobby or a new talent.

Wonderful course! I have learned so much about this beautiful profession (I still have so much to learn), and I must admit that I did not imagine being able to do everything I have done.
All thanks to Bagartus, mainly Lorella and Damian. 
Lorella is an excellent teacher, and her knowledge is possible only for someone who has a life inserted in the bag making sector. She and Damian are always accommodating, kind and professional. They are very good people, and I hope to always learn something from them because it is always a pleasure.

Thanks very much to Damian for the shots of my bags during the course."
