Ciao, I am Caterina Bidini
I am the Creative Director at Bidinis, and I’d like to thank you for visiting my website!
If you have a short attention span, like me, here are just a few interesting things about me…
- Born and raised in Firenze
- International law degree—but I never liked law that much ; )
- Traveling the world as much as I can
- I have a restless mind
I have spent the majority of my career working in the fashion industry, attracted by its creativity, and always looking for new inspiration.
For a major part of my life, I struggled to figure out my path and what I wanted to do; I have finally found what really moves me. This is my new mission: find talented artists like Michelle Vella and collaborate with them to bring new life to fashion.

ENJOY YOUR HAND-PAINTED HANDBAGS
100% MADE IN ITALY
Caterina worked for some of the best Italian brands during her twenties. She established amazing relationships with some of the artisans who went on to make those fashion brands among the world’s greatest.
When we say 100% made in Italy, we really mean it.
We want to offer you the finest quality and have so much respect for the craftsmanship of those artisans that we would never leave them. We are committed to them and you, equally
We use only metal-free leather, meaning that has not been treated with heavy metals that can harm the environment. Our suppliers are controlled and certified step by step. We also use a botanical dying process. Very few providers do this; the reason why it isn’t popular in the fashion industry is simple: it’s more expensive. However, we strongly believe this is the future; this is what needs to be done, and this is why we do it. Help us to spread awareness ♥
Your Bidinis Handbags will be hand painted by the Canadian recognized artist Michelle Vella, who shares Caterina’s vision of Fashion and Art. We brought the concept of uniqueness to a new level. Each bag is numbered in 3 different sections, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the designer and the artist. Every single handbag is created on demand for you and you only and there will be no other bag like yours in the world.

Fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg discovered Vella on Instagram resulting in a meeting in NYC and delivery of her custom portrait which is now part of the DVF collection.
Vella has garnered commissions and collaborations with high fashion magazines, fashion designers, corporate and private collectors. Having an education in Fine Arts and a graphic design business for a decade, it was only recently that Vella unleashed this new found passion which has now become her full time career. Vella’s recognizable style is ever evolving and crosses the line between illustrator and artist. Michelle is based in Toronto, Canada.
