Complementing the appeal of Montegrappa's youthful NeroUno Lifestyle Collection of watches, cufflinks and pens is a bold new family of accessories. Montegrappa has turned to one of Italy's most respected crafts that of working with fine leathers to produce a comprehensive range of pocket-sized leather goods.

he leather accessory range is identified by a metal emblem, octagonal in shape and mounted with a faceted black crystal. This recalls the top of the NeroUno pen, as well as the crown of the NeroUno watch, a visual motif to symbolize the NeroUno milieu. For those who cherish their NeroUno pens, watches and cufflinks, the same design spirit imbues a selection of wallets and billfolds, a passport holder, business card and credit card holders, a credit card holder with capacity for a pen, an i-Phone case, a holder for protecting a single pen and keyrings. NeroUno leather accessories are offered in both glossy black leather and in black crocodile pattern leather. Recognized universally for shoes, bags and belts, made from the finest hides and skins with construction and attention to detail second to none, the Italian tradition for the manufacture of leather goods is without peer. Italian proficiency in crafting such items informs everything from shape to functionality, the color of the hide to the surface texture even the aroma is an evocative element of the experience.
Artist Info: Montegrappa manufactured since 1912 stands in the same historic building on the bank of the River Brenta, in one of the most picturesque areas of the historic town of Bassano del Grappa in the prosperous north-eastern part of Italy. This Italian heritage is an important value for a Brand that is the first Italian pen manufacturer: it is his tradition, his legacy. Since 1912 Montegrappa pens embody the Italian flair. Founded as a "Manufacturer of gold nibs and fountain pens", the Bassano factory found itself in a key position during World War I. Among the many soldiers who used Montegrappa pens (then known as Elmo) to write letters home, there were also two celebrated American writers, Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos, who were both volunteer ambulance drivers at the front. Montegrappa's pens are reserved for those who can't live without the emotions inspired by the feel of a crafted writing instrument between their fingers, responding to their delicate movements. Whether it be the colors reminiscent of the master painters or the ornaments of Baroque palaces, it is all part of Montegrappa's Italian heritage. In the land known for drama and love, where writers especially have come to get a taste of romance, no object is too small or too practical not to strive for beauty. As well as its limited editions, freely inspired by great moments of history and the most ancient passions of mankind, Montegrappa produces a regular range, for who want to indulge in a daily luxury.
