The brand was founded in 1920’s by Guccio Gucci. He worked at The Savoy Hotel in London as a lift boy, this is where he became inspired by the luggage and cases of the guests. he returned to Florence to make bags and accessories. He founded the House of Gucci in Florence in 1921 as a small family-owned leather saddlery shop. He began selling leather bags to horsemen in the 1920s. As a young man, he rapidly built a reputation for quality, hiring the best craftsmen he could find to work in his atelier. In 1938, he expanded his business to Rome. Soon his one-man business turned into a family business, together with three of his sons, Aldo (1905-1990), Vasco (1907–1975), and Rodolfo (1912–1983), Gucci expanded the company to include stores in Milan and Rome as well as additional shops in Florence.
Gucci’s stores featured such finely crafted leather accessories as handbags, shoes, and his iconic ornamented loafer as well as silks and knitwear in a signature pattern. 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.
