Childhood buddies Paolo Trento and Pietro Mannato founded Mandarina Duck in 1977 in bella Italia. The luxury luggage brand specializes in leather goods (bags, handbags, wallets and laptop bags) and travel items. It’s long been a favorite of travellers and connoisseurs; both Trento and Mannato have a background in the field of plastic materials and rubber, and Mandarina Duck luggage has a reputation for being built out of super-light, avant-garde synthetic materials: MD backpacks are particularly amazing. The duck on the Mandarina Duck logo represents a species of duck from the banks of the river Ussuri, between Russia and China, that is a tireless traveler and a faithful companion for its entire life. In 2004, a line of Mandarina Duck fragrances were launched to great reviews, including Mandarina Duck Pure Black, Cute Pink and more.
