In celebration of Gucci’s 90th anniversary, the House will bring five of their talented craftsmen to San Francisco, where they will showcase their technique at custom-built workshops inside the Gucci store on November 1 – 3, 2011.

As the artisans assemble a selection of iconic Gucci handbags, customers will witness first-hand the meticulous attention to detail and superb craftsmanship involved in the production of every item in the Gucci leather goods collection.
