Since the second half of this century, L.A.P.A. has been synonymous with finely crafted briefcases and luggage. Nicola Stanescu, who founded the company in 1955, started out producing a limited number of superior quality articles in a small workshop in Florence. That quality has remained unchanged over the years. Today his children Andrea and Rossella continue in their father's footsteps. Top quality leathers (tanned with environmentally-friendly vegetable extracts) and accessories are carefully chosen to enhance the style of finished product. Each item is crafted and sewn with the same careful attention to detail, making each article unique. A constant search for perfection in every article makes each new collection an example of classic Italian style.
