A Texan living in Bologna, Allison Hoeltzel Savini brought her fascination of saddlery and vintage motorcycles to create a line of handbags at the highest standard of Italian craftsmanship.

Founded in the spring of 2014, Officina del Poggio drew its name from its origin – a workshop in the hills.

The hills of Bologna became home for Allison as she established her career in accessories, building and managing the product lines for international brands such as Stuart Weitzman and Alfred Dunhill. Drawing from her depth of experience, Allison sought to capture a sense of timelessness in design and quality – the foundation for Officina del Poggio and the ever evolving collections she creates.


“A well-made bag is appropriate for all occasions.”
