Our amis over at Materialiste took one badass tour of the Gucci factory in Casellina, Italy—or as they more eloquently describe it, une visite exceptionnelle. This guarded state-of-the-art building outside of Florence is where the label produces its fine leather wares.

“Hundreds of craftsmen are working in the factory, producing 50, 000 leather goods each year. We’re feeling incredibly privileged to be there as only a handful of people were given the right to take photographs inside those walls,” Materialiste tells us. Along the way, they got a look at the Gucci stockpile of exotic animal skins (including the shimmering hide of a giant anaconda), and were able to watch many a craftsman ply his trade.
