150 years of experience in gold manufacturing, the enormous know-how and professional heritage, highly skilled artisans and laboratories, the capacity to follow market trends and requests: these are the strengths of the Valenza District. Jewels produced here are exclusive and hand-manufactured with sophisticated techniques: they are one-of-a-kind creations and Made in Italy symbols that are very hard to replicate.
The District boasts the presence of world-famous brands like Damiani, Pasquale Bruni and big plants such as Bulgari’s, as well as small companies but very dynamic and flexible.
Piemonte’s clothing and fashion sector encompasses quite a broad variety including lingerie, fashion accessories, footwear, leather goods and plays a leading role in the field of garments.
Craftsmanship ability, style, research, personalisation of the products, are internationally recognised as the winning features animating Made in Italy fashion.
