About Us

Arte Moda exclusively resell Pierangelo Masciadri's handmade designer handbags. Each bag is part of a limited edition, produced in Italy, and made of waterproof, environmentally-friendly fabric.

Cindy started Arte Moda in Australia following a trip to Milan, where she came across one of Maestro Masciadri's Arte e Moda stores. Realising there was a need for beautiful, well-designed works that valued their local communities, Cindy started to import Pierangelo's pieces and offering them for sale to consumers in the Asia-Pacific region.

All Arte Moda accessories are delivered wrapped in tissue paper, in a beautiful custom-designed black box tied with ribbon, and include a details card listing information about the accessory number and design. We believe that delivery should be an art in itself!

Pierangelo Masciadri

Pierangelo Masciadri built his career designing beautiful accessories for almost every high-fashion house, including Armani, Versace; Ferragamo, Lanvin and Dior.

Pierangelo has always valued the craftsmanship and quality of materials from his native Lombardy region. When many of these houses started moving their production facilities away from the area and sourcing materials from elsewhere, he decided to start his own line of Pierangelo Masciadri designs.

Pierangelo's pieces have always been produced by local craftspeople from the Como and Bellagio region, and made from materials sourced locally.

The results have been spectacular. Pierangelo's work is internationally renowned for his silk ties and scarves worn by the likes of George W Bush, Bill Clinton and Albert II, Prince of Monaco, with his newer bags and accessories gaining visibility worldwide.

We're proud to stock Pierangelo's work for a new audience, and invite you come to appreciate their beauty, quality and commitment to the local Lombard community.

The Materials

Polyart

Polyart is a versatile, environmentally-friendly and water-resistant material Pierangelo uses for most of his bags. Polyart is great for prints, showing off every vibrant detail. It's also fully recyclable and made to the highest environmental management standards.

Made from waterproof and strong fabrics, Pierangelo's bags are also able to deal with wild weather and are highly stain-resistant.
