The Gabs brand was founded in Florence in 2000 by Franco Gabbrielli, the designer of this Italian brand. After years, learning and developing bags in the traditional way, Franco decided to take on a challenge of a new important project, working on "a new concept of bag" where this wonderful accessory can be transformed, according to the consumer needs. The idea became a success from the beginning. Clients were attracted by materials, colours, shapes and functionality but they also appreciated the new proposal with great enthusiasm.
The demand from clients increased continuously. In order to respond to the growing sales for Gabs, in 2005 the designer started a partnership and collaboration with the manufacturers and designers ‘Campomaggi & Caterina Lucchi’, which gave life to Gruppo Emergenti Italiani.
Today Gabs is an influential brand in the Italian leather industry. An unconventional project that has always been synonymous with colour, transformation and innovation.
