I spent a week and a half looking around Tuscany for the perfect leather wallet and found it in Ciro's workshop on my last day of the trip! He was kind enough to let me come into the store during his
break and even allowed me to customize a wallet I had my eye on. Beautiful work, fast shipping, I highly recommend his store to anyone looking for authentic, high quality leather goods

My wife and I stayed for two weeks in the neighborhood, and passed by Ciro's fascinating workshop often. Watching him work through his windows gave me the incentive to finally talk to him about
making me a new belt. I had a design and materials already in mind, and Ciro took time to advise me and make suggestions, which ultimately pleased me far more than my design would have. My wife was
so inspired by Ciro and the process I went through, that she worked with him to design a new belt for her. The two belts were finished by the time promised. And we are both so pleased with the
results, sturdy and of the highest quality materials and workmanship, and just the high quality originality and casualness we wanted.

Avoid the markets and make sure you stop here if you're looking for leather in Florence - so many unique, beautifully crafted pieces (or have something made to order), and great service from Ciro!

Quoio is one the best stops we made when my husband and I were in Firenze last week. If you appreciate true craftsmanship and want to support local Italian artisans, go see Ciro!
Away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy area and on the south side of the river in Oltrarno where many artisans still hone their craft, you will find this quaint leather workshop run by Ciro,
who practices traditional methods of leather working and makes excellent belts, wallets and other accessories by hand, one by one.
What’s great about Quoio is that I was able to personalize and design my full-grain veggie-tan bull leather belt and also a keyring cut from the same leather. I chose from a wide variety of buckles,
which were made by a local metalsmith, and also from different leather finishes and widths. The prices are a little higher than what you would find at the vendors on other side of the Arno river but
when you know that your money is helping to support a real local artisan so that he can continue and preserve traditional methods of leather working, every cent is worth it. Besides, you are getting
a one-of-a-kind handcrafted piece. From Italy!
As it is handmade to order, I had to wait a few days so it was sent to my home. I just received the package yesterday and I am so THRILLED with my new belt and matching key ring! The leather is
beautiful and rich, and goes so well with the buckle! Every stitch is perfectly placed and the finishing of the leather is top-notch! It is truly Italian-made. I know it will be my go-to belt from
Grazie mille, Ciro!

Fantastic service and quality leather! Definitely go visit Ciro if you’re in Florence!

If you are in Firenze, go to Ciro! I bought a beautiful belt, hand-made by Ciro. i could choose materials, everything from A to Z. A few days later I received this belt by post - handmade - with the
best material imaginable. Never had a nicer belt! Very happy.
If you are in Firenze, Italy, everywhere: if you like tradition, craftmanship, think twice before you buy in the big stores. Italy has a tradition in what Ciro does, and Ciro does it respectful to
the tradition with the best materials.
The best thing about Ciro is - you get the best product - you support the real Firenze-people or Italians - and you support a better world and more respect to craftmanship, roots and tradition.
GO TO CIRO!

Usually, I don't write any comments but there are a few exemptions. Since the strap of my watch gets regularly broken I decided to ordered a watch strap at Ciro. What can I say? It's just fantastic!
Ciro crafted a lovely peace of craftsmanship with precision and a lot of passion. Ciro implemented all my ideas how the strap should look like and he simply delivered great quality. To my mind there
are only a few people out there how know what there are doing in their job and you do it with passion. Ciro is one of the few.

Qualitá e cortesia, ho acquistato un anello in cuoio da spedire all'estero e sono molto soddisfatto. La consegna rapida e il Sig. Ciro é stato molto gentile a seguire i vari step. Sicuramente
compreró di nuovo. Complimenti per la sua arte. Grazie!
Paola (Saturday, 11 May 2019 19:13)
Ho acquistato un anello da uomo, da regalare per un'occasione speciale. Ho cercato tanto qualcosa di originale e finalmente ho incontrato l'arte di Ciro Brandi. Qualcosa di originale e unico.
Ringrazio Ciro per l'assistenza a distanza e la velocità. Grande professionalità e cura del dettaglio.
Mario Taddeo (Sunday, 07 April 2019 12:33)
Fantastic service, excellent delivery (to Australia). Quality and design of my products is fantastic. Highly recommended.

Grazie per la vostra grande professionalita’ E’ stato un piacere acquistare due cinture fatte su misura di cuoio. La cura e l’attenzione fornita dal Sig. Ciro nel prestare un servizio eccellente
nella realizzazione delle mie cinture meritano essere condivisi con il pubblico. Raccomando vivamente di fare i vostri acquisti in questa azienda. Cordialmente. Mario Abate

Thank you very much for great work! I received bracelete, which I ordrered as present for my friend and it looks really good and high quality. Also, I want to mention secure packing and fast delivery

Two years ago while
Walking the wonderful back streets of Florence I came upon you in your interesting atelier. After friendly and interesting conversation and seeing the finely hand crafted accessories you detail so
carefully, I asked that you craft me a belt. It became so much a perfect part of my attire that I hoped to re-visit Florence one day for another of your items. My return visit a month ago only
confirmed what a true feeling you have for crafting fine leather. My shoulder bag arrived yesterday with that distinctive quality leather sensual aroma, and a hand feel of only the best
I couldn’t be more pleased. As much as I love Florence and have visited for decades, I’ve seen the truly dedicated hand crafted shops give way to those just importing goods with the implication that
they are fine, Italian and local. They are produced in other countries! You are the only true Florentine leather craftsman that I know that still crafts in Florence itself.
Please continue with your unequaled talent right there in that wonderful and quaint workshop of yours. I hope to be back in the near future for another fine work of yours.

Ho acquistato un portafoglio a soffietto, oggetto che mi ha conquistato già con quel inconfondibile profumo di cuoio. Lavorazione di alto livello, la cura dei dettagli e la qualità dei materiali lo
rendono un oggetto esclusivo che il passare del tempo lo renderà ancora più "prezioso".
Maurizio B. (Thursday, 05 July 2018 14:34)
Ho ricevuto un bracciale e una custodia per cellulare da applicare alla cintura e, come sempre, sia il servizio che i materiali e la lavorazione si sono dimostrati di livello professionale. Come ho
già avuto modo di scrivere, la fedeltà del cliente è la prova migliore dell'affidabilità del negoziante. Un saluto e al prossimo acquisto.
Flavio L. (Thursday, 24 May 2018 15:54)
Ho ricevuto la custodia per Iphone 8 Plus e sono stato soddisfattissimo. Non è la prima volta che il buon Ciro mi accontenta. Il servizio impeccabile; I materiali usati, unitamente ad una manualità e
professionalità tutta italiana, consentono la realizzazione di oggetti "preziosi" e che si contraddistinguono su ciò che si trova sul mercato.
Ciro mi ha realizzato una personalizzazione sulla custodia davvero diversa e che desideravo tanto.
Complimenti e alla prossima. . .
Rob Harman (Tuesday, 08 May 2018 23:07)
Thank you for making my first visit to Italy special. Your excellent craftsmanship has given me a wonderfully unique piece or art to remember it by. I look forward to adding more of your work to my
wardrobe soon. Ciao!
Koen (Thursday, 29 March 2018 16:47)
just received my new Leather Case for my Samsung Galaxy S9+ via DHL and I must say it looks and feels great. As it is my third Leather Case that I buy from you, it's still the quality I'm used to and
it protects my phone perfectly. Thank you again for the quick and good service and when I buy a new phone in a couple of years you'll hear from me again.
Robin Ferrini (Thursday, 15 March 2018 17:08)
Thank you so, so much for my son's beautiful belt! I even kept the packaging!
Eighteen year olds can be very finicky about what they wear -- but, who can say no to fine quality?
It's an heirloom he'll have forever -- long after the finicky stage and well into the appreciation stage!
Thanks again for everything,
Maurizio B. (Thursday, 15 March 2018 16:50)
La fedeltà del cliente è la prova migliore della serietà del negoziante e della qualità dei suoi prodotti. Questo è particolarmente vero circa gli acquisti on line. Aver acquistato due portachiavi,
una cinta, un portafoglio, un porta iPhone e un porta carte con soddisfazione e senza alcun problema, è la conferma di tale serietà e qualità.
Maurizio B. (Wednesday, 07 February 2018 19:50)
Ciao Ciro, il portafoglio è arrivato e anche in questo caso, come nei precedenti acquisti, hai dimostrato professionalità, per aver soddisfatto pienamente le mie esigenze (grazie per la pazienza: da
appassionato del cuoio sono molto esigente) e grande abilità nello scegliere e nel trattare un materiale "vivo" che con il passare del tempo migliora e acquista una sua caratteristica ben precisa. 5
stelle meritate e al prossimo sicuro acquisto.

Absolutely beautiful and extremely well made belt. I wanted a handmade belt to go with a special brass buckle I had made for my husband. I certainly was not disappointed. It is not only what was
advertised but so much more. I was able to have my grandchildren’s names and the date put on the inside of the belt to make it even more special.
Thank you for a beautiful and special Valentine’ gift.
Justin (Tuesday, 19 December 2017 10:09)
Thanks Ciro for the keyring and bracelet I recently purchased from you. They're receiving lots of admiring attention. It was a pleasure meeting you during my stay in Florence.
Witek (Friday, 15 December 2017 15:20)
I stumbled on Ciro's shop purely by chance while visiting a friend in Florence over a year ago. I purchased a wallet from him and was very much happy with the quality of its materials and
workmanship. As a result, I e-mailed him a couple of weeks ago asking if he'd do a custom piece for me and ship it internationally. He was open to the idea and very communicative during the process.
I've received the finished item two days ago and couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend his work to anyone.
Valentina (Wednesday, 06 December 2017 07:59)
Portafoglio da uomo semplicemente meraviglioso sia nella fattura che nel colore !!! Spedizione puntuale. Alla prossima !!! Grazie
Baron (Monday, 06 November 2017 19:59)
I wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying my wallet. Your craftmenship is appreciated! I love having a unique piece of art to carry around with me daily and it keeps getting better with age.
Thank you again as well as the restaurant recommendation to I'll Santo Bevitore. It was one of the best dining experiences I had in Italy.
Take care and thank you again for sharing your passion and craft.

If you look for fine handcrafted leather belts Quoio Shop in Florence is a absolute must to visit.
When I went to Florence in September 2017 I passed by Ciro's Shop and was facinated about his belt design and craft.
I ordered a personally designed belt which I received a week later at home and was very happy about the result. He did a great job - Eccellente lavoro !!!
He also took care about the shipment and kept me informed about the status until I received the package.
Regards from Germany
Franco L. (Wednesday, 26 July 2017 20:14)
Ho dovuto navigare parecchio in internet per trovare cinture che rispondessero al mio gradimento, anche in molti siti stranieri. Tante cose che però non mi davano la giusta soddisfazione. Ho voluto
provare con Quoio, trovato casualmente, ed è stata la mia fortuna. Un prodotto eccellente esattamente come lo volevo, qualità e solidità; ottima comunicazione da parte del gestore, prezzi corretti
per il livello proposto. Consiglierò senza se e senza ma le cinture di www.quoio.it.
Grazie, Franco L.
Thomas (Monday, 01 May 2017 17:52)
danke nochmals für die tollen Armbänder. Es sind die schönsten, die ich habe und ich werde mir bestimmt noch das eine oder andere Armband bei Dir kaufen.
Grazie mille for your art.

Ciao Ciro. La custodia di cuoio per l'iPhone 6 plus è arrivata ed è esattamente come la immaginavo e come le foto la rappresentano: cuoio di qualità ottimamente lavorato e rifinito nei minimi
particolari. Non ultimo anche il confezionamento del prodotto: semplice ma curato. 5 stelle di valutazione. Saluti e al prossimo acquisto.
Silvia (Friday, 23 December 2016 15:59)
Grazie Ciro, portachiavi arrivato come volevo!!!
Nella sua semplicità è un ottimo prodotto :)
Marco S. (Monday, 07 November 2016 03:13)
Ho acquistato dal signor Ciro una cintura colore naturale con effetto invecchiato e sono felicissimo di averlo fatto. La qualità del cuoio con i suoi caratteristici segni naturali, la bellissima
fibbia e la particolare colorazione che il maestro gli ha impresso ne fanno per me un oggetto unico ed esclusivo.
Michele Day and Robert Ives (Sunday, 30 October 2016 15:20)
Robert and I wish let you know how much we enjoyed visiting Quoio on our recent visit to Florence. Robert is wearing the beautiful handmade belt you crafted for him and feels he's lost 30mm from his
waist and he floats when he walks down the street.
Thank you for your good company and lively discussion we shared about your district and leather craft. Michele and Robert
Marco Bernardi (Friday, 16 September 2016 20:42)
Ho acquistato due bracciali in cuoio. Prodotti artigianali stupendi, grande gentilezza del titolare nel fornire informazioni e spedizione precisa e puntualissima! Che dire, tutto perfetto!
Michele Iannotta (Thursday, 30 June 2016 21:51)
Ciro poche parole,ma tanti fatti,concreti.Passione e amore per il suo lavoro.Credo che sia il numero uno nel settore,mi sono innamorato di QUOIO perche' la prima volta mi colpi' il suo
studio-negozio,pulizia,ordine e tante cose belle.Scappate dal mercato popolare di Firenze,ma innamoratevi di questa bottega nel cuore di Firenze.Grazie Ciro!
Charles Storer (Friday, 15 April 2016 19:26)
What a joy to receive such a high quality handmade and hand-crafted leather product that was made with no fuss, delivered quickly to me in the UK, and into which my iphone6 with Mophie Juice pack
fits perfectly. Great job!
Ariane Brunet (Wednesday, 13 April 2016 19:00)
Ciro's work is crafted with love, passion, commitment and his design are artful, leather is the best there is. The quality of service is impeccable. Top notch craftwork. A joy.

I just received my new leather phone case for the S7 edge. It looks fantastic and I am very happy with it. The phone fits perfectly. I know I will enjoy this case as much as I did with my previous
one. Thanks again for the fine craftmanship and great service.
