Up to You Anthology is a brainchild of Nicolò Gavazzi, an entrepreneur who has held managerial positions at Boffi and De Padova. The idea is as simple as effective and makes it possible to shorten the supply chain from production to sale. Moreover, it allows you to design your own bag, an exclusive model just for yourself or even a collection.

Design and bags: an innovative idea

Nicolò Gavazzi explains: “I conceived an e-shop that allows the designer to directly reach the end customer, reducing the traditional production and distribution processes.” The system is easy: the designer presents his/her idea, the platform verifies its feasibility and produces the bag. All the bags are entirely made in Italy by Italian artisans.

The materials include recycled fabrics, with low environmental impact manufacturing processes, and leather from animals already in the food chain. The finished bag enters the market with the label ‘Up To You Anthology’ and the designer’s name.
