This soul makes the brand unique in the world of photography: 100% Italian. Barber Shop bags and accessories have been conceived and styled in Bassano del Grappa, a small jewel of a town set in the north-east of Italy, in the province of Vicenza. Here, in the charm of a place where the mountains and the hills meet the plain and the river Brenta, we created a collection that contains the passion for work, for quality and above all for beauty, mirroring these places.Why Barber Shop?Barber Shop line was founded in Italy, the land where barbers used to come from in the past: men with a passion for detail and a flawless craftsmanship. They take care of the face and style of a person: what best expresses their personality. The barber is the man you entrust your own skin. With the same care Barber Shop build its bags and accessories, with an accurate attention to detail and that unique Italian taste that makes every product authentic, special and distinct.Moreover the name Barber Shop recalls materials such as leather, the idea of an artisan workshop and the urban style. Barber scissors and a razor are stylized in the logo. The ‘barber pole’ becomes a distinctive striped red white and blue tape sewn in all Barber Shop products, as well as in the elegant packaging boxes.The payoff suggests to the customer that they are in “Good Hands”: you can secure your camera equipment as it were in the hands of a good barber.
