Luxury Shopping: In 1952, Mario Briccola founded Bric's in his small, personal workshop located in Comasco, in the Como region of Italy, painstakingly handcrafting each piece of fine luggage. Word soon spread of the quality of Briccola's creations, with customers traveling great distances to purchase the fine luggage that had become the trademark of Bric's.
Today, Bric's operates more than 20 specialty stores in Italy, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany and the United States. In addition to luxury travel products, Bric's line has expanded to include Italian handbags, wallets, portfolios, briefcases, shoulder bags, duffel bags and totes for men and women, all made from the highest quality Tuscan leather and other fine materials. Bric's designs are celebrated for combining elegance and cosmopolitan flair with functionality and practicality. While distinctly modern and suited to the latest and hippest fashion trends, every Bric's bag holds true to the age-old traditions of Italian quality, craftsmanship and artistry.
In addition to Bric's own boutiques, Bric's luggage and handbags are also available at upscale department stores such as Bloomingdale's, as well as through fine online retailers such as Forzieri. To view the entire product line, locate a Bric's boutique, or join Bric's mailing list, see their Web site.
