Aldo and Margherita Furlanetto founded Furla in 1970’s in Bologna and as you may guess the name, “Furla” originates from the shortened version of their surname. The Furla company’s target was clear from the beginning: the production of high quality artisan goods, primarily with the production of Furla handbags for women but were also producing all sorts of leather goods and accessories for women. The very first proper collection of Furla handbags was released in 1975. At that time Furla really counted as a novelty with their new style technologies, which were combining leather with nylon and rubber and they have become the first so-called contemporary production company of Furla bags. Furla was always ahead with its researches and has invested great amounts in this, in order to always bring something new to the customers. The general style of Furla handbags is simple and minimalist but this way they are also elegant and classy in the same time. This can be thanked to all the great artisan technologies and the first-class leather they use for their leather goods. The company has remained a family company with the third generation of Furlanettis leading the company. Furla opened its outlets first in Europe’s biggest cities and then in Asia as well. Furla has also been a pioneer in contemporary art designs and in order to promote and support new artists in 2008 it has founded the Fondazione Furla with the Furla Art Award, which is awarded each year to one of the most talented new artists in Italy.
Furla works in such way, that before the making of each one of their collections they collect inspiration from a fairy tale, an art object or anything. This year Furla’s main inspiration is the famous fairy tale of Lewis Caroll called “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. You can imagine how beautifully this collection looks like. Furla has now stores in 64 countries and during the past decades, it has grown out to be one of the most prestigious Italian brands. Furla handbags look beautiful with their trendy elegance; they are more than worth buying.
In Dubai Furla operates currently 3 stores: in the Dubai Mall, in the Mall of the Emirates and in the Mirdif City Centre. Moreover, Furla has a special collection produced for Saks Fifth Avenue that you can see in Dubai’s Saks in the BurJuman Shopping Mall.
Furla handbags are really worth buying especially, because even though an elite brand, their prices often tend to be lower than of the leading leather artisan brands. The price of Furla handbags varies between AED 1400 and AED 3500. In Dubai, you may have the chance to buy them for a cheaper price especially during the shopping festivals.
