Authentic Gucci Handbags
Gucci (pronounced Guchiiii) was founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci. He expanded and opened a boutique in Rome in 1938. Guccio was responsible for designing many of the company's products. In 1947 Gucci introduced the bamboo handle handbag which is still a company mainstay. In the 1950's Gucci developed the trademark striped webbing which was derived from saddle girth and suede moccasin with a metal horse-bit. The horse-bit is also a mainstay today.
After his death in 1953 his sons Aldo and Rodolfo, helped lead the company to a position of International prominence. The company remained a family affair and in 1983 Guccio's grandsons Maurizio and Paolo took over the helms of the business. In 1998 Gucci was named European Company of the year by the European Business Press Foundation for its economic and financial performance, strategic vision as well as management quality. Gucci is considered one of the world's most influential fashion houses and has a highly profitable business operation, creating masterful Gucci Handbags and Gucci Bags.
