About Us

Our goal is to bring the charm and flavor of Europe to you with artisan products that you can enjoy yourself or give as gifts.

In addition to our online store, www.poggibonsigifts.com, we host temporary pop-up shops to showcase our gifts.

We are a woman-owned business and we hand select our products and import them from France and Italy ourselves. We have traveled hundreds of miles in the European countryside seeking out suppliers who practice their centuries-old crafts.

We have taken our name from the Tuscan town of “Poggibonsi.” On our first trip to Tuscany, we got lost every day and kept running into signs for “Poggibonsi” — the name stuck with us because it is so fun to say. For more information about our name, please read our story, “Why Poggi Bonsi?”

Our Italian Ceramics are hand-painted Majolica from Deruta in Umbria and Montelupo in Tuscany, we also import from other regions such as Abruzzo. Our French Pottery is handmade in the villages of Mougins and Vallauris near Cannes on the French Riviera. We offer a selection of fine European linens and fruit-themed kitchen towels from Italy and France. We feature hand-crafted Italian Olive Wood such as breadboards, graters, and a variety of utensils from a family-run mill also in Umbria. Our Italian glass items are from Murano (Venice) and Florence, Italy. We carefully choose seasonal items to incorporate into our gift packages and custom corporate gifts.

We look forward to bringing a little European flavor into your life!
