Last week I found a nice leather purse in my favorite thrift store in San Francisco. At home I took a closer look at it and found inside a golden stamp SCUOLA DEL CUOIO, Made in Italy. I searched the Internet and came across there website. I found this: The unique location, the quality of its products and the commitment to tradition has made Scuola del Cuoio famous. Scuola del Cuoio today remains the largest genuine laboratory in the city where clients can witness the artisans create the leather goods in the midst of centuries-old history.
So far so good. But inside the purse I found three initials C.Y.C. and wanted to know more about it. I sent an email and pictures to them and ask about the purse. I got an answer the next day: " It's a nice bag that we produced for a few years back in the Eighties. It looks in pretty good shape. I would think that a bag like that would retail today for 300 Euros ($ 436) or so." Oh my goodness...I couldn't believe it. But look at it, isn't it a nice one?
