Its product lines include handbags, ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories, makeup, fragrances, and home decoration. Gucci is a family brand by Guccio Gucci, founded in 1921 in Florence.
Guccio left Florence for Paris, and settled in London in 1897 to work at the high-end Savoy Hotel. While working as a bellhop there, he would load/unload the luggage of the hotel’s wealthy clients, learning about their tastes in fashion, quality, fabrics, traveling conditions…
In 1921, Guccio Gucci bought his own shop where he sold imported leather luggage. Leather became scarce, pushing Guccio Gucci to introduce other fabrics in the composition of the products, such as raffia, wicker, wood, linen and, jute. In 1937, Gucci launched its handbags.
Guccio’s wife and children all worked in the shop. Aldo, the son of Guccio, became increasingly involved in the family company since he started working there in 1925. He convinced his father to grow by opening a new shop in Rome in 1938, and launched more Gucci accessories (gloves, belts, wallets, keychains).
The company made handbags of cotton canvas rather than leather during World War II as a result of material shortages. The canvas, however, was distinguished by a signature double-G symbol combined with prominent red and green bands. After the war, the Gucci crest, which showed a shield and armored knight surrounded by a ribbon inscribed with the family name, became synonymous with the city of Florence.
