At last we’ve found the answer to all those people who complain about not being able to fit their luggage in their Ferrari’
Ferrari is world famous for the quality of their vehicle down to every last detail. I particularly love the amazing leather that is used for the interior. If you check out there website, that leather is actually sold as baby seat lining and on phone cases! Clearly I’m not the only one that loves this product.
In the 50’s and 60’s the trend began to customize cars with their own interior fabrics. Ferrari really picked up on this trend and it is a staple of their tailor made program that allows buyers to specify exactly what they want don’t to a tee.
The trend to feature exquisite leather is traced back to a man named Mauro Schedoni, a luggage make in the 70’s that was praised for his high quality work.

This is how the Schedoni brand became the exclusive supplier for Ferrari upholstery. Mauro schedoni moved to the California production facility for Ferrari and produced more customizations as Ferrari developed both it’s F-1 and consumer vehicles. So if you’re in the market for some new luggage and a conversation piece, I would make a call to the Schedoni facility in Italy and see if they’ll do a mail order 🙂 Lord knows their leather customizations would be too expensive by now.
