    Ciro non si smentisce mai! Sempre una qualità eccellente delle pelli e una manifattura dei prodotti creati in maniera veramente artigianale. Sono sempre soddisfatto di aver comprato ormai diverse sue creazioni. Spedizioni veloci. Grazie Ciro!

    Ho acquistato un braccialetto con un'incisione personalizzata e non potrei essere più soddisfatta. Ciro è stato gentile e rapido nel rispondere alle mie domande sulla personalizzazione e il bracciale è arrivato in tempi davvero brevi.
    È un oggetto molto bello e curato in ogni dettaglio, seppur nella sua semplicità. Prima ancora di aprire l'imballaggio si può sentire l'odore del cuoio, che è di evidente qualità. Non c'è che dire un'arte e una professionalità ormai rare. Sicuramente acquisterò di nuovo!

    Appena ricevuto le due cinture per i miei ragazzi. Sono contentissima con la qualità e la collaborazione con Ciro. Facile da communicare. Spero di tornare a Firenze al suo negozio piu presto possibile. Sarà un regalo meravigioso per i nostri ragazzi. Ciao.

    Ho ordinato una cintura per il mio fidanzato e appena ho visto l'alta qualità del materiale e della lavorazione ne ho ordinata una anche per me chiedendo all'artista ,perché la sua è un'arte, Ciro Brandi, di realizzarne una anche per me, unica e personalizzata. Oltre alla grande disponibilità e cura nell'accogliere tutte le mie richieste, mi ha creato un prodotto unico , bellissimo in vero cuoio italiano introvabile sul mercato.
    Altro che cineserie! Consigliatissimo ! Questo punto vendita è un'ottima fonte di idee per prestigiosi regali di Natale made in Italy realizzati con cura e passione.

    I have just received a belt today in Bath UK as ordered on-line with a very well executed engraved message. This is the 4th belt that I have ordered from Ciro at QUOIO and the quality is as always absolutely excellent. I can highly recommend them as a company to do business with over the internet. Great service.

    Acquisto di un portafoglio da uomo realizzato su mie specifiche. La qualità della pelle è indiscutibile, cosi' come l'esecuzione e la manodopera. Il viraggio del cuoio naturale, delle cuciture e l'evoluzione al tatto del pellame riportano a una categoria di prodotti che pensavo scomparsa.

    I received my belt today and I absolutely LOVE IT. It is everything and much more than what I expected. The quality and craftsmanship of the belt is everything that I have been looking for. Ciro made the entire process so easy for me and he guided me through the process and kept me informed and answered all my questions in a timely fashion. Shipping to NYC via Fed-Ex was faster than I expected. I'm very pleased with my purchase and experience and look forward to visiting the shop later this year.

    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 now on.

    Grazie mille, Ciro!

    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.

    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.

    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 leather.
    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".

    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.

    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. . .

    Hi Ciro,

    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.

    Best regards,

    Koen (Belgium)

    Dear Ciro,

    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,

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Grazie Mille

    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

    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.
