What is Marcopoloni?

Our goal is to bring people like you, who cherish and appreciate fine artistry, closer to the artisans who create them. Everything we offer is handmade by carefully-selected artisans who pour their love and pride into each piece of work.

Much as Marco Polo brought the Western world in contact with the treasures of the Far East in the late 13th century, Marcopoloni strives to put you in touch with beautiful handmade goods from around the world!

2011 Festa Coloniale Italiana

We had a lot of fun at the Festa Coloniale Italiana in San Francisco this past weekend. It was our first time participating in an event like this, and other than the hairy moment we had when the wind just about blew our tent away, we had a fantastic time meeting and chatting with fellow lovers of fine handmade Italian goods.

Elephant Keychains

Giann's elephant keychain was simply irresistible!

The runaway winner of the festa was Giann’s Elefante Italian leather elephant keychain – it was sold out by mid-day and people just could not help but comment on how cute it is! But then again, the entire keychain rack seemed to elicit incessant cries of “ooh”s and “ahh”s throughout the day!

Another product that got a lot of attention was Campomaggi’s distressed doctor bag. People seemed to be drawn but it, and many were¬† gawking at this bag, seemingly transfixed in some altered state of mind. We just got these bags in so I don’t even have a photo to post yet … but for now, you’ll just have to take my word for it. It’s drool-worthy.

Anyway, thanks to all those who stopped by our booth, and we hope to see you again at the next event (TBD)!!
