Since 1774, Pineider has been known for its excellent handmade paper, writing instruments, and leather goods. The brand's prestige is built on its exceptional heritage and willingness to innovate.
Pineider's history begins with innovation when, in 1774, Mr. Francesco Pineider opened his first stationery shop in Florence. He sold the first personalised printed letters in Italy, drawn from Anglo-Saxon and Germanic traditions. By 1800, Pineider's had become a mandatory stop for Grand Tour travellers passing through Florence. Notable visitors included Stendhal, Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, Giacomo Leopardi, and Napoleon.
By 1900, Pineider's personalised paper, pens guaranteed for life, and extraordinary writing desk sets were distributed worldwide thanks to the appreciation shown by politicians, public figures, and celebrities among them Luigi Pirandello, Maria Callas, Elizabeth Taylor, Luchino Visconti, and Rudolf Nureyev.
Artisanal savoir-faire, uniqueness, tradition, and design are the historical values that make Pineider an exclusive brand worldwide.
