From 1946, BONINO creates handcrafted products made to enrich the refined style of an exclusive and elegant public. Starting from the Fifties, in the first artisan laboratory, in via Cavallerizza, Chiaia, the master Gaetano Bonino, guardian of the most ancient manufacturing tradition Made in Italy, started to create customised and made-to-measure items to please the Neapolitan nobility’s requests. In the Sixties, although continuing the own handcrafted production without leaving out the search for perfection and care for detail, with industrial development of serial machining, BONINO flanks, with its extraordinary experience, the most prestigious international fashion brands, giving collaboration in special research projects and making unique creations. In the following years, by transferring in the actual laboratory in Bagnoli, BONINO becomes a reality being able to transform and innovate continuously making any project into high quality artisan products. In fact, elegant seasonal collections and made-to-measure items are made using prestigious materials like leather, precious fur, fabric, horn and silver, being able to arouse unmistakable emotions.
The supplies of materials used by BONINO are meticulously checked in accordance with the italian regulation about slaughtering, as prescribed by Legislative Decree n.333 of September 1th 1998 implementing directive 93/119/CE concerning the protection of animals during slaughter or killing. Certified leathers are selected within the company and meant to an accurate production according to the most important qualitative standards. It is offered a wide range of products which includes leather bags, small leather goods, belts, wallets, work products, luggage and luxury accessories.
Skins of calf, lamb and goat coming exclusively from european farms are made by italian companies with European Quality Certificate, where the raw material is treated with the utmost respect of the stricter regulations anti-pollution. We select, from these companies, only first-choice and full-grain leathers (the most precious part, the surface, where it is possible to see the pore and the grains of leather), dyed in barrels with natural aniline. Reptiles like crocodile, pythone, alligator, caiman and exotic skins like shark and pure-bred respond to the need of producing exclusive and refined items.
