Sole Ferragamo
Founder and Artistic Director

Making things with my hands is my passion. This is the result of growing up in Florence with its architectural beauty and talented craftsmen, as well as being in a family with design at its heart.

While my degree from Politecnico of Milan gave solid foundations to my design process, I chose to step away from architecture. I wanted to design and create something that I could hold in my hands.

After one year of working in two factories, creating pieces with leather and metal, I had a clear vision of what I wanted to do: turn the beautiful leather that every year is abandoned by the fashion and luxury industry into a cherished piece of jewellery.

While I was studying for my Master’s degree at Central Saint Martins University, I won first place in the fourth International Design Competition ‘Craft the Leather’, and held exhibitions in Milan and Rome to showcase my designs.

After graduation, I opened my first pop-up store in London where I also met Leila who became my first customer and now my business partner.

The pop-up store was a great success and we decided to grow the business into a global brand.

My wish is, and has always been, to bring a smile to my customer’s face, even if it is by simply creating a piece of jewellery you like!
