The history of Zanellato is closely tied to the concept of authenticity and elegance typical of “made in Italy” sartorial ateliérs.
Zanellato was founded in 1976 as a sartorial leatherwear workshop, producing luxury gloves and precious accessories that were executed with skill and scrupulous care.
Thanks to this heritage, Franco Zanellato – who heads the company in Vicenza – with passion and talent, has successfullly consolidated and expanded the company by creating a unique and unmistakable style whose luxury products are appreciated worldwide.
Elegant, sophisticated, authentic bags executed with skill display the unrivalled “made in Italy” quality.
The rules of production are those of the Sartorial Atelier, where tradition is treasured and the continual search for new designs are in perfect harmony, generating refined, at times ironic pieces that exalt the art of handmade leatherware.
Zanellato proposes a new “ lifestyle” in which an impeccabile, discreet, handmade luxury item becomes an indispensable accessory to wear, love, and desire.
In July 2011 the Zanellato brand entered the world of sport as a sponsor of the Zanellato Polo Team, whose patrons include Davide Nanni and Patrick Saurini. A new challenging commitment that the Vicentino company has made to an exclusive and dynamic sport.
It was Franco Zanellato’s idea to design a modern version of the iconic shoulder bag used by the Italian postman in the 50’s while maintaining an elegant and refined style.
The Postina® soon turned into a line of its own and is a symbol of post war Italy, evocative of a world rich in tradition – reminiscent of a time when the mail was still delivered by the the postman on his bicycle - when the wait for him to arrive was filled with promise.
Some models are characterized by the authentic locks typical of the postbags used for delivering letters; studs and rings are original and are standard features of the entire line.
The logo, La Postina® - The Bag, distinguishes the entire line and represents the historic third lock found in the bag of the 50’s.
There are several models for women, all elegant, feminine and practical thanks to the well-designed spaces.
For men, the Postina® also proposes bags suitable for travel in unique leathers and materials and shopper bags in canvas enriched with real leather handles and other details.
To wear the Postina® means “to wear Italian tradition” with elegance and style.
Zanellato accessories are elegant and at the same time modern and dynamic – synonymous with beauty and quality - made of the finest leathers by specialized artisans.
Tradition merges with inspiration to create contemporary designs that result in accessories made of soft, silky, durable leather.
The attention to detail and the search for functional solutions that simplify our daily lives is what makes Zanellato products unique, Italian, handcrafted masterpieces.
