The company’s strength is the “Italian handmade”, Apple Watch Straps, Belts, Bracelets and Leather Accessories in general, are the result of this inseparable combination.
Maison Minardi comes from the courage and passion of Paolo Calbi Minardi, from his wish of revisiting in a modern way the old family traditions, forging his own style on the contrast between classical and modern.
Minardi has made its way almost for fun, day by day, always making different leather accessories, from belts to straps, from bracelets to purses. Appreciated both by women and men, the products continued to impress until when, urged by many friends and experts in the field, Paolo began to wonder if this was really his mission and finally he created Minardi in 2013.
