Who we are

EFG Guanti is a charming boutique in the historic centre of Florence, specialised in the sale of high-end,  hand-made leather gloves.

Founded in July 2011, thanks to an idea and the experience of Elena Forti Grazzini who, after a long career accrued in the production of apparel and accessories in the men’s and women’s luxury fashion field for leading Italian, European and overseas companies, felt the need for a transformation in her own professional life.

Thus it was that, in the wake of her long and rewarding career, in which she was engaged in research and development for third parties as well as being continuous trips and transfers also an integral part of her profession, she felt the desire to direct her efforts towards a more personal, family-run project. Values such as commitment and competence, combined  with the research of elegant design and outstanding quality of the materials and craftsmanship are kept in Elena’s mind as her goal; nevertheless  fashion evolving trends are well taken into consideration while producing efg new collections, with a result of an always updated, fashionable and versatile gloves offer.


Our Boutique

Our Clients

The joy that Elena has always poured into performing her past professional activity, together with the culture linked to her own roots by visiting clients all over the world, is now repaid and maintained as she receives visits to her store by an extremely varied Italian and international clientele. EFG Guanti is proud to offer and distribute a tailor-made niche product, the result of top-of-the-range, exclusive “made in Italy” craftsmanship, right in the heart of the beloved city of its founder: Florence.

The Logo

This desire for evolved and optimistic change is therefore what Elena expresses in the logo of the brand, where a small rising crescent moon entwines with the elegant initials of her name, symbolising light on the present, fertility and continual rebirth.
