sig. Luigi, la cinghia è arrivata, voglio complimentarmi per la qualità assoluta,
il comfort e la bellezza del suo prodotto.

Dear Luigi, Thank you so much for the expedited delivery. I received the case this morning.
The quality of your products are beyond beautiful and the workmanship is divine. Definitely happy with my purchase !

Many thanks,  Kristine (full case + strap for Fuji X100/X100s)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi,

My M10 case and strap arrived today and fits the camera very nicely.  
Since I purchased by Epson R-D1 case from you a long time ago, M8 case in 2007, and M7 full case
sometime after that, I see the process is ever improving. 

The cases are just as sturdy, but a little less bulky, something I appreciate. 
I will keep you in mind for the M11 case when that camera comes out in 3-4 years.

Thank you,  Eric
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra and Luigi,

I have just hooked up the Silky Special strap to my Fuji X-pro 2. It is even more beautiful than on the pictures.
The softness of leather, the silky feeling of the cord, the scent of high quality leather, the subtle shine - this is a piece of art.
Luigi, you are Benvenuto Cellini of camera bags and straps.

Thank you, guys ! I wish you many, many more years making these superb products Ivan

My strap arrived today in exactly 2 days from Italy to California! Incredible.
I am so happy with the quality, it is beautiful and looks so classy on my Leica M9.

You are the Fausto Coppi of leather artists!

Many thanks,  Jason

Hi Luigi,

The case got here at lunchtime today - very quick. Thanks for the exceptionally good, protective packaging.
I'm delighted with the quality of the case & strap, and with my choice of colour. My "new" very well looked after M6 likes it a lot -;)

All the best,   John

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My Leica R9 case arrived today. Holding the R9 in this beautiful leather case is a splendid experience.
I will tell you that touching a real work of art is a pleasure.

You are a genuine craftsman - something we are in real need of in these desperate times both in Europe and in North America.
Enough of politics!

Thanks again my friend. I hope to come to Italy in the next year. I would love to drop by and say hello.

All the best my friend,   Johnny

Inviato: lunedì 24 aprile 2017 17:58 - A: Ginevra Crescenzi <ginevra@luigicases.com> - Oggetto: Borsa per D-Lux 109

Buon Giorno,  desideravo avvisarvi che abbiamo ricevuto la borsa ed è molto bella.
Siamo soddisfatti dell’acquisto e ci complimentiamo per il lavoro accurato.

Un saluto, Robert K. Rehmann=

Carissimo Luigi,

ieri sono tornato del mio viaggio e nella Posta ho trovato una bellissima sorpresa! Grazie per il tuo lavoro bello e prezioso - un vero documento del artigianato italiano! Nel pacchetto non era solo la versione ordinata, anche un "upgrade" notevole ed una cinturina in più! Grazie, grazie. grazie! Tutto conferma le mie esperienze con l´ Italia e gli Italiani: dopo ogni incontro ti lasciano sempre con aspetti più ricchi e sorprendenti e più spesso che no cambiano i miei pregiudizi teutonici nel senso opposto! Perciò mi piace molto la vostra cultura vivace e vivo - e mi dispiace, che in questi giorni in Europa ci sono tanti voci, che preferiscono una visione limitata e nazionalistica invece di godersi le differenze tra di noi che aprono la mente di tutti. Magari nella Leica e le tue creazioni di cuoio non si deve solo vedere il lusso e il valore monetario come viene detto e scritto spesso. Piú che altro si incontrano la dedicazione alla necessità technica, la precisione e la bellezza in ogetti di un piacere profondo per il fotografo che può avere solo degli effetti positivi sulla propria fotografia. Grazie di nuovo per la tua generosità e una primavera splendida a Roma.

Cordialmente, Peter Kapper, Germany

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi,

First of all, I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your kind concern and support.
It's been very busy days yesterday and today for me which limited my ability to your excellent demonstrated
procedure. However, after reading your recent email, I forced myself to try it and it worked. I'm impressed,
not only by its gorgeous looking and quality built, but also how smart its design yet tricky and clean.

Thanks for a wonderful and marvelous piece of art and after sale support.  Kind Regards,  Mohammad 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi and Ginevera,

Dear Luigi,

Many thanks! Last week the half case for the Leica M(240) and the full case for the Leica M10
both have arrived in very good order and condition. We are very happy with them and especially
enjoy your expertise in handling such elaborated parts. Putting hands on them is really enjoyable.

In the next days a parcel will arrive at the via Courmayeur 35 showing up an important part of
the past Leitz production. Attached you will find a today's DHL tracking result containing a
reference to the Italian tracking.

Kindest regards, Angela and Norbert

Thank you very much for your time and skill and excellent prompt service.

Hello Ginevra and Luigi,

The camera case that you made for my Canon 7s arrived yesterday, Sept 13th. It only took
4 days from Rome to the-middle-of-nowhere Oregon!  When I opened the package it was
like Christmas for me.

I have admired your craftsmanship for years and only dreamed that one day I could own one.  
Imagine my surprise when I finally unwrapped the camera case and found that the beauty and
craftsmanship far exceeded my expectations!

It is beautiful and I love it!!! Now my classic rangefinder has the finishing touch that it has
needed for all of these years.  It no longer is just a well-designed and functional black and
silver metal camera, but wrapped in the warmth of the oiled leather case from Luigi, it is
transformed into a work of art!  

Thank you both for making this case for me.  
I wish you both a long life full of good health and happiness!

 Best regards,  Doug McKay,  Silver Lake, Oregon  -  P.S. Did I mention that I like the case?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, just to let you know I received my package today. All perfect.

The case is very nicely made –  superb craftsmanship again. Thank you.
The leicatime box that the case came in is also a very nice touch.

Many thanks,  Alan C.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a lovely piece of craftsmanship from Italy!!! My Leica I never looked so good. Grazie mille for the lovely case and super service.
Kind regards, Charles  (special half case for Leica I, and II, with SS "flush" Tripod screw...)

Also your strap is quite useful and reflecting user’s requirements, I think.
Thanks for your support,   Yasuo K. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi,

I received the Tazio strap today. It was really fast delivery! Thank You.
The strap is truly beautiful!! As always :) (I still use your case for my old Leica M9)

Thank you very much. Best regards,  Wojtek
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I received your package. Thanks so much for the very fast shipping! I think you are a terrific man. Your leather products are wonderful. God bless you Luigi. 

I have a ranch here in California and I keep the front gate closed unless I get a package. I missed the FedEx man the first time, he left a note on the gate -
I opened the gate and he came by and left your leather camera strap in the afternoon. 

You have the very best leater products, thanks so much for your attention to detail. I know you are a photographer, you know what is best for camera leather
straps and cases, all the details you put into your leather makes them wonderful. I especially like the softness of the straps I get from you. When on my
shoulder it is comfortable. When shooting, I wrap the strap around my arm for security in crowded areas especially in Latin American countries like Peru and
Guatemala. Wrapping the strap on my arm keeps it from hanging down when I am shooting pictures. Your soft straps are nice and pliable to wrap on my arm
and wear over my shoulder. 

I have one of your half cases for my Leica M9 camera and it is perfect. It adds style and class, but most important, it is functional to protect my camera. 

Thanks so much. Steve P.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Luigi,

Hello Luigi,

I cannot believe it: I just ordered a leather case for my new Leica T yesterday and it arrived with DHL already today here in Munich!!!
You are fantastic - faster than Amazon but much nicer service, not speaking of the wonderful quality of the bag.

My wife has almost been crying, because it reminded here of the leather case of the old analog Leica that her father had in the early 70s.
Really beautiful, stylish and functional! I hope I can visit you in Rome one day!

Best regards,   Hans
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello, I received the parcel and, as always with Luigi straps, I am amazed!

Hi Luigi, i received the leather cases they are very very good and fitting to my L-ME and N-Df. I also noticed you refunded $90.
I want to thank you for your services in making the leather cases, market the products, pack them properly to send off to customers,
treat your customers with kind words, and the sweetener gifts like discount and keychain. You take care there in Rome. Ciao. Derek.

                      Got my new case!! thank you so much, more than a case more a work of Art. 

It perfectly compliments my Leica Q. They both look too beautiful to use, might retire and just put them in display cabinet  !!!
It is so nice to get something that is not plastic these days. And made with loving care.

Regards,  Doug

HI There Luigi

The strap arrived safely this afternoon - no time to go out to test it, it’s dark now anyway
It’s fantastic - so satisfying to put it on the camera! it feels really firm - no metal bits to scratch anything - just perfect. 
More comments later when I’ve had time to use it properly.

Here is a quick snap of it on my SL - I’ll do some better pictures later on and post them on facebook. 

The SL is a really fine camera - it works really well with all Leica lenses - (M, R and T), and it’s lovely to use - the zoom is rather large . . . . .
but it’s so good you can forgive it!I’ve had 3 different ones over the last 6 months, the first two were test cameras, but this last one is mine.
Has your’s arrived yet?
All the best, Jonathan Slack   (Genius strap for Leica SL, S2, and most rectangular lugs !)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi, All items have arrived. Your products are the ultimate in accessories for Leica!  Thank you very much.

Best regards,  Dan Sullivan
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cher Luigi,

Ciao Luigi and Ginevra,

I received my camera case on time in Italy! It arrived on Thursday and we arrived in Italy in Friday. We left for Switzerland Saturday morning.
Thank you both very much! I can't stop admiring, holding, and touching my camera now with the beautiful new case!
It is beautiful and makes the Leica D-Lux
so much easier to hold. I look forward to another Leica one day, and another case from you! 

All the best,  Jeni Chang Gulinelli, Los Angeles, California
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,
I received the strap yesterday, many thanks for this very fast shipping! Tazio is a great strap !
It will be looking fantastic on the M Monochrom without scratching it. Thank you!

Ciao, Patrik
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi! The case arrived one hour ago ! Fantastic ! Thank you so much!
Also, congratulations on your excellent craftsmanship, the case looks and feels fantastic. 
Cheers from Munich!!!   Joon 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, the M-Mate-M was waiting for me when I returned home from work tonight. 

I immediately tried it on my MP240. It was perfect! Clicked in with a little bit of persuasion and it fitted the camera like a glove!
And thank you for the strap. Very nice indeed! You are truly a great craftsman!

Thank you again! Regards,  Alan
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra and Luigi,

 Just a little message to let you know that this morning I received your leicatime rally half case for my LeicaIIIA. 
I am very happy with it. It looks absolutely stunning!!! I can't wait to put it on the camera, which will return from a
maintenance service next week. So I will have to wait a few more days to see what a wonderful match they make.

Wish you a wonderful weekend and thanks again for sending the half case so quickly. Best regards,  Erik van Leeuwen
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra

My strap arrived yesterday, thank you for the fast making and shipping! The strap is superb!
On the picture in the attachement. I find the new "Tazio"-Strap looks great, is the leather so thick on the "no lined"?

Best regards,   Patrik
------------------------
(Luigi's answer...)

Hi Patrick, Luigi here. Thank you for your message, and feedback !  J
You are an attentive observer. Our leathers (the best ones) are quite thick, but of course, when fully lined or when used in
“two layers”, we MUST to make them less thick, through a special machine.

However, we are ready to meet your wishes ! Ciao,   Luigi
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra,


I received this morning your package by Fedex. The half-case and the strap are magnificiently carried out until in more the small details.
I thank you very much for this excellent very refined work! I will announce it around me ! Thank you still.

Best regards,  Guy Marques
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi, dear Ginevra,

 I have well received my package with the half-case for my Bessa Rangefinder.
And I am VERY pleased with it ! You, guys, do really a great job. I appreciate it a lot.

I will promote the compagny around me, as I can.  Merci, grazze mille !   Fabien, from Montréal, Québec.

Hi Luigi,

I've received my case from FedEx and it is really amazing!

I have no regrets at all with this purchase and this would be the perfect gift for my girlfriend for her birthday!
Thank you very much Luigi and keep up the wonderful work! Your note to me also made my day.

Also thanks to Ginevra for your help during the process. Cheers,  Chew

Very nice  - the case is beautiful, and exactly as I hoped it will be. The quick delivery was great - well in time for my trip.

Thank you again,  Hans De Corti, Western Australia

Ginevra,

I just received the half case and strap for my Leica MP240 and wanted to tell you and your father how pleased I am.
The quality is first rate and the speed that I received it is outstanding.

Please accept my thanks,  Ed

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi & Ginevra, I received  case and strap for the Leica T last Friday.  I must say that for such a functional case it is also an art piece. 
I sent a picture to the salesman who sold me the T at the Leica store, Bellevue, Washington.  He, too, commented on how incredible
but functional the case is. 
Thanks again!  Joseph Vasquez 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I have my custom case and I am very happy with the result. You executed my design and vision exactly.
Thank you very much for making this a very pleasant experience.

I have other cameras and I will ask you for more cases soon.

Many Thanks,  Mel Francis
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi, Ginevra, I have received the case yesterday and tried a bit of shooting with the case.
Thank you so much for making such a beautiful case. It fits perfectly with my camera together with the thumbs up.I really like it.
I might just order again from you in the future.  Good luck and best regards,  Julian Pinto

Hello Luigi, More feedback. Leica M2 is happy now resting in a Luigi case. Maybe someday I buy another Leica, I will buy again from Leicatime.
Thank you for very fast shipping. Sorry if my Italian is bad, I was born in USA not Italy. But my grandparents came from Sicily, so I should learn.

Thank you again! Elliott Russell

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi! The strap has finally arrived.

What a beautiful, beautiful work you do! You are such a gifted man, making excelent craftmanship in such a strap.

Besides looking good, it is a pure  pleasure to use the strap. The camera spent the most of yesterday around my neck.
Where my neck usually would hurt with the original Leica strap, yours felt soft and kind, not scratching the skin on the neck.
I can not praise your superb work highly enough :)  -  Kind Regards,  Bjarni 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I received the case yesterday…my third from you! :)  Beautiful work!  Thank you for the personal touch!

Hello ginevra,

I received the two cases for my Leica M type240 and Sony a7r by Fedex today.  They are really beautifully made. 
I particularly appreciate the ingenious design features that your Dad put into both cases. 
They show much originality and care in protecting the camera bodies. 

I am very happy with all the goods that I own made by Leicatime. Best Wishes!   John Ling
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Ginevra, Luigi,

I received my half case and strap today. First of all thank you shipping it quickly.
Secondly I am absolutely blown away by the quality of your craftsmanship.
It's really beautiful. Finally it has also improved the ergonomics of the M-P240. 

 Thanks a lot once again. I shall soon be buying another case from you :)  Ciao. Best, PK. 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi and Ginevra,

Thank you very much for the quick reply.
I love the case and strap! Beautiful workmanship, and they are more than a case and strap, they are works of art.

All my good wishes,  Martin Alford, Devizes
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ginevra, Luigi, Thank you very much for all of your attention to my order. The leather is the absolute best in the world

Hi Luigi-  I received the strap and it's very nice.  It arrived fast, too!  Just want to thank you for producing a quality product that
works well and is comfortable to use.  The scissor clips work perfectly, as well.  It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Dear Ginevra and Luigi,

My half case and other accessories made it to Panama, I received them yesterday. The leather is amazing, superb patine and smell 
and of course, it fits the camera perfectly, I am very very pleased and understand why you have such fame.

I also want to thank you for the packaging and the personalised note in the case, a very nice touch.
I will certainly come back to you when I buy my future Leica film.

Best regards.  Kim
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi,

I just received my half case, neck strap, ss body cover, and lens cap.   You are an artist!   Your work is beyond beautiful.  
I am glad I live in a world where someone like you takes such pride in their craftsmanship!!  

Pictures do not do your cases and leather justice… they have to be seen, held and even smelled (mine smells like a ripe pear!)  ;-)

Thank you for the quick shipping, the Leica keychain and for bringing a smile to my face!   All the best,   Jeffery
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra, Dear Luigi,

wahouu!!! Right now (Thursday 2nd) I just received my order according to the title! Quasi incredible: when I said fast IT IS FAST REALLY!

Of course, splendid work, I recognized your perfect work (remember... this is the 5th (yes 5th half-case; mainly ordered from Switzerland-Geneva these days).
I also re-discovered some kind words from Luigi and even small gifts included! All that makes memories of years, probably at least ten, first orders were linked to Leica M-8...

So, a big thank to Ginevra and you Luigi. Hope you and familly going well and strong.  Best and kind regards.  Marcel B.

Wednesday 1 April 2015 11:25 CDT (Texas, USA)

Dear Ginevra,Thank you so much for expediting my order for my black M-Mate 3 and Dark Brown padded strap.

The package arrived this morning perfectly wrapped in the new full-color Leicatime box.
Shipping from Roma, Italy was quicker than from some Leica dealers here in the USA that I have ordered from.
Ordering was easy using PayPal with your assistance. 

I am so pleased. The M-Mate 3 fits my Leica M8.2 perfectly.
It makes it so easy to change the battery and SD card without removing the baseplate.
The grip makes handling the camera much more secure and comfortable.

Now I’ll have order one for my Leica M-Monochron! And a half case and padded straps, too.

Thanks again Ginevra. I wish you, the Maestro, your Mother and your entire family a very Blessed and Happy Easter!

Warmest regards,  Glenn Heffernan
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The custom made case that Luigi has produced for my Fuji X100T is not only a beautiful piece of work, but fits the camera perfectly.
The main point though is that I can now carry the camera, without a lens cap in this anonymous case and pull it out quickly to take streets shots,
using his wrist strap if required, and then pop it back in the case again.

This is ideal for a camera like the X100 and means that I will have it with more often than I would otherwise – and that, after all, is the main thing.
As the old saying goes – the best camera in the world is the one you have with you.

Dear Luigi,

I received the MP240 a few minutes ago and have fitted it on my camera. (Full, Natural, for M-Mate-M)
It is a work of art! Mille gracia, Luigi!! And thank you, too, for making it in time for my trip. It was a lot of work, a lot of work, I can see.

My very best wishes to you and to Ginevra,  P. R. Clyne

All the best for your family and business! Thank You!  Igor

Hi Luigi, just wanted to let you know the camera strap arrived today and looks amazing.
I would like to thank you for your superfast service,  never imagined having the strap in 4 days from Italy.
Thank you again for your efforts,  and your straps i think are priced too cheap for the craftsmanship. 

I own many straps for my Panerai watch from Di Stefano and Mario Paci costing around $300 USD each
and they are much smaller pieces of leather. 

Anyways a great job to you and your artisans. Thank you,   Jeff Libertore
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra, Luigi,

Thank you very much! The case has been delivered with the Strap, just now. There is also a LCD Cleaner in Blue Box. Is this a free gift?
Please do let me know if its a mistake. I will pay for it. 
(Nikon DF...)

On the other hand, I am very happy with the product and the services provided. I am glad to be able to own one of Luigi’s product, and as
Luigi mentioned in the website, I am proud to be able to own a product made by someone with honour. I am honoured.

Thank you again, and I do hope if I have chance in the future, to do business again with you. Best Regards,   Rauhail
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello  Luigi and Ginevra,

I have quite a few of your leather cases already, all protecting my Leica camera bodies when used.  I especially like your exclusive rear
door design, both detachable and hanging.  They do such a good job on my digital M Leicas in keeping the LCD screens clean of all smudges,
dirt, and scratches. 

With your cases, I can hold the cameras just like film-based models, without worrying about dirtying or damaging the LCD screens. 
When I need to do so, I expose the LCD area and see an absolutely clean and spotless screen. 
I really appreciate this feature of your cases!  No other camera case maker has been as original as you in adding this design.

Again, thank you!  John Ling
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ginevra….the case for my Leica M240 arrived today….I was shocked it arrived so quickly —overnight——

(I am Luigi... It's my "Tenderly" case, I love it, too... now available for several camera models !)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra,
I received the strap swiftly and liked it immensely. Very lucky that I could reach you without any prior exposure to your products.
The strap is of the highest quality and seems to be addictive. Sure to buy more. My respect to Mr. Luigi and best regards to you.

Good Morning, 

I have 3 of your cases, 2 Leica M and one for a Panasonic GF1.  I have to tell you they are wonderful. 
It is a real pleasure using something so well made and beautifully designed. 

I was walking at the rim of the canyon at Bryce National Park and I heard a voice say "Luigi makes nice things doesn't he".
I looked over and the guy had a big Leica R with a Leicatime case.  All we talked about was how much we like using the cases. 
So thank you so much for creating such fine products. 

I dropped and destroyed my old Panasonic so I need a new camera.  I want a camera that will fit a Leicatime case and I can't
afford the new Leica M. Are you considering making a case for the Fuji X100T?  It looks like a fine stylish rangefinder type 
camera and it is getting great reviews. I think it would look even better in a Leicatime case. 

If not are you considering making cases for the X100T are you thinking about making cases for any other new cameras?  

Thank you, and please keep up the great work.   Allen Rxxxxxx,  Menlo Park, California. 

From Allen Rxxxxxx
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra, I received the wonderful half case for my X-T1 and am just as thrilled as with the previous case!!  

Your father truly creates masterful products!  What satisfaction is must bring to create wonderful objects of natural materials such as wood or leather.
Please thank your father for another extremely well-crafted and beautiful case.  I do very much treasure these cases!

I wish your and your family all the best.  Nonna and Nonno must be very proud and pleased with their sweet grandchildren. 
Thank you very much for that beautiful photo!

If you ever need anything from Germany, just give me a notice.   Best wishes,  Mike B. =
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Ginevra,

I received the case today.  Thank you for your prompt service!  I haven’t opened it but I’m sure it is beautiful.
I’ll leave it wrapped the way it is for my husband to open for Christmas.

Thank you again! And an early Merry Christmas to you and your family!   Karen

(by Luigi : not a real feedback, but an extremely kind and friendly message... I can't resist, I like to post it. too ! )
Ciao,

I won't try Italian since its been 50 years since I studied it. When I was in Italia a few years ago, my attempts at Italian came out mixed with Spanish.

I recently had the pleasure of ordering a case for my new little Leica through your efficient daughter. As I went through your site I came to really
admire how you turned your passion for photography into an art form! Your case designs are thoughtful and beautiful!

I was struck with some coincidences in our backgrounds. Our birthdays are only a few months apart. I saw your picture with Juan Manuel Fangio.
A close friend of mine was on the Ferrari factory racing team years later. I've also been involved with boats and motorcycles all of my life.

When I was ten years old I grew fascinated with photography. A family friend got the Pulitzer prize for photography in 1944. (Frank Filan for Tarawa.)
He normally used a Speed Graphic or something but he showed me how to use my dad's old Rollei Automat which I still have. Filan's prize winning
photos were taken with a borrowed camera since he landed with the first wave of marines in Tarawa and lost all his equipment when he almost died
during the landing.

Where you are a master craftsman and an artist I was a university professor In Finance and Economics. I've been an enthusiastic if not great
photographer all of my life dragging a backpack full of Nikons and lenses all over the world. Later I added a small video camera. I always wanted
a Leica rangefinder but never could justify it. Your beautiful cases might actually inspire me to buy one now! Maybe with a .8 lens ????

Grazie,  Mike D
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi and Ginevra,

Your package arrived today. I was mentally prepared for all the making days.

I wasn't counting but I had mentally kicked that ball of desire into the distance. So it was an amazing surprise. 
The case, your work, is simply magnificent. Beautiful. Thank you so much for making it for me and for sending it so quickly.

Best wishes to you both,   Phil Goodwin
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Ginevra and Luigi,

The bag came today and is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much. It’s exactly what I was looking for.
I love how the camera with a 50mm Summilux fits perfectly in one of the compartments and the pillows are great.
I’m looking forward to using it, starting tomorrow. 
   

Thank you also for sending the strap along with the new connectors. I’ll use it at let you know what I think.
As always, thank you both. Your products are world class.   Jonathan
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

Thank you so much in advance. These straps are for my brother and my best friend.
When I think what is the best gift for friends who love photography,
I think a good strap might be a brilliant idea.
Then I immediately I know I have to order the BEST straps from you. :) 

Thank you very much. Looking forward to my beloved Luigi Leicatime straps. :)

Best Regards,   Howard
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ginevra and Luigi, So now IN ADDITION to absolutely incredible workmanship / craftmanship, you have absolutely incredible service.
My case, strap and battery/SD cases arrive and is

ciao dear (ginevra and) luigi --

this is a very good job, the black ostrich cover arrived. it looks very good and truly hand-made — very nice -
I also like the extra “luigi” solution for the strap and the extra security so the camera cannot fall out

this is very beautiful, mille grazie! ciao & best,  marco
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Luigi and Ginevra,  Many thanks for the finely crafted Zen leather case. Fits perfectly and is beautiful!

Hi Ginevra and Luigi,

The bag came today and is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much. It’s exactly what I was looking for.
I love how the camera with a 50mm Summilux fits perfectly in one of the compartments and the pillows are great.
I’m looking forward to using it, starting tomorrow.

 Thank you also for sending the strap along with the new connectors. I’ll use it at let you know what I think.
As always, thank you both. Your products are world class. Jonathan
   
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi, I received your case today.  Your case is truly a thing of beauty.  
My wife and I recently watched the movie La Grand Belleza, and loved it.  

It seems that Roma is full of beauty, and now I have one small hand made piece of it.

Thank you,   Lucas
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, Tante grazie for the beautiful camera case ! 
I'm happy to choose the perfect color for my sliver Zeiss Ikon. You know what I mean by the picture I'm sending to you. 

Thank you again for making my camera case, really one of a kind! Kind regards,  Masako
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Luigi; 
I was quite surprised, when the ("silky") strap already arrived this morning by DHL. 
It is looking marvellous and it matches very well to the Leica M. Thank you very much for your excellent design and craftmanship.

Kindest Regards,  Volker
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra and Luigi,

Your parcel arrived today -- in a most timely manner.  Your Ostrich Grey case truly is a work of the high artistic craftsmanship.  
The ostrich leather is delicate looking yet  strong, refined yet fully functional, both on and off the camera it is a thing of beauty -
and as Keats says, a joy forever !  It fits my LEICA silver M Monochrom like a glove.  Thank you for your exceptional service and product.  
As soon as I have the time,  I will take a picture of it on the silver M Monochrome and send it to you.  
With appreciation and best regards,  Tom Pastorello 

 P.S.  Yes, I use Etruscello as my handle because of its Etruscan resonance.  
A DNA analysis of my mother's side of the family shows ancient roots that go back to Etruria.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mr Luigi,

You are a very happy gentlemen, you like to crack jokes. While you are preparing me to be patient and wait for few days for payment to clear,
your beautiful case already arrived my doorstep, less then 48 hrs after confirmation.

It is a great surprise and feel most rewarding to enjoy a super service from your smart daughter.
It's an unbelievable fast delivery and I believe it must be you, the founder , that have set up such an efficiency workflow, 
worth a 6 stars feedback in EBay .

All the best to you, good health,  Andrew Cheng
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Mr. Luigi, dear Ginevra,

today your delivery with the Leicatime case has arrived. I have to say that I'm really satisfied! It fit's perfect and safe.
The smell of the leather is amazing. In every aspect, in every detail the feeling is true artisanal handcraft. It's an upgrade for every Leica!

Thank you for all! Best regards,  Daniel
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

I received my Leica half case today, I love it!!! Beautifully made with the smell of real leather.

Dear Luigi,

I have just received the case, thank you. It looks and feels amazing and is such a great piece of art!
I look forward to buying more things from you in the future (when I could afford a Leica)! 

Grazie mille, Lee (Natural Aged Brown half case for Sony RX1 !)

Dear Mr.Luigi.
Today, I've got the case ! 

How quick it is ! I'm very glad to take and buy it : )

Best regards from  Mr.Shigeru Mise
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra and Luigi

Your fantastic case arrived on Saturday, and I am VERY pleased.  It looks magnificent.

At first I was a little disappointed, as I had not realized that the full case was intact. 
In fact, I was thinking that I might make some alterations so that I could remove the ‘nose’. 

However, I took the case to a local leather expert, and while inspecting the case, we realized that the ‘nose’ slips off. 
What a fantastic and very clever design.

My friend is a local leather expert, and he was incredibly impressed by the quality of your work. 
He noticed many small things and kept saying how excellent they were, and what high quality it was. 
Consequently, your case has my approval but also that of another leather expert. 

Congratulations and thank you for a wonderful piece of art-work. With all best wishes,
Dr. Adrian J. D., Ph.D.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Maestro Luigi, Grazie Mille! I am very excited! 

Tim Isaacs spoke very kindly of you the other day and sent me hilarious photographs of you both 'fighting' in a cafe! 

I shall send you photographs of my two chrome Leicas, my M3 and now my new M9-P, in their respective full cases.
They are my pride and joy - after my beloved Cordula and my family of course!

If I can ever afford the M Monochrom, I shall contact you again! Thank you for your hard work and your beautiful cases.  

With best wishes,  Gerard 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Luigi,

I received the package, it is perfect! Thank you very much for the two gifts, this is very kind of you.
The case fits very tight, this is good. And your hand grip in case is great idea!! The strap also is perfect, all look good insieme!

I am a Leica guy, so the key ring with Leica, mi piece molto! Once again, thank you for the excellent quality of product and service. 

Regards,  Joseph Cataldo
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra & Luigi,

Hello Luigi,

Just to inform you that my case just arrived and I am thrilled!  The design of the case and the workmanship is exquisite. 
Finally, a case with quality to match the camera that it was made for.

I am so pleased with the product and with the service that you and Ginevra provided. 
Thank you so much, I will definitely recommend Leicatime to my professional associates. 

Cheers,  Reed
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Luigi and Ginevra, 

The custom full case for my Leica IC arrived last week. Thank you for a superb job. The fit is perfect, the design clever and elegant,
and the black leather sets off the nickel fittings beautifully. Simply, it looks, smells and feels wonderful. 
That someone is still making such magnificient cases for these 80 year old cameras is simply amazing.  All the best,  Walfun
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi & Ginevra,

I just wanted to let you know that my case arrived to day in perfect order and much sooner than I expected.
It is beautiful. Thank you for your great work and, once again, it is a pleasure doing business with you.

Brian M. L.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi :
Pardon my poor Italian……..MAGNIFICO
The case is perfect for my needs, and I understand the little strip that keeps the chain from the camera.
BRAVO, and I send a kiss to your daughter for her help, sorry no kiss for your face.

Thank you,  Kenneth A. E.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra: 

The case and strap have arrived today. Please, let your father know that I am impressed with the beauty and quality of the strap and case.

Grazie mile. Ricardo
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginerva and Luigi,

I received my camera case and strap today--they are wonderful.  My M9 is much happier in its new case than it ever was in the original Leica case.

 Mille Grazie...Mille Grazie!   Joe Rosenthal
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi and Ginevra,

I wanted to let you know that the shipment arrived today (as scheduled).  It was very carefully packaged and the
case was in perfect condition.  The case is very nice and exactly what I wanted.  The fit to the camera is excellent.

Before ordering I looked at the cases offered by several sites and vendors.  I chose yours because of the high quality
and also because you offered the options I wanted (a hanging door and a thumbs-up cutout) in a selection of leather types.

It has been a pleasure doing business with you. Best regards,  Stephen

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra, dear Luigi, thank you very much - your shipment reached me already yesterday in perfect condition.
The cases and strap are very nice. Thank you very much for the excellent service .

With kind regards,  Rainer Kallenbach
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, Hans here again. The halfcase has arrived, it is beautiful and fits perfectly! Thanks so much for the present.

Caro Luigi, Cara Ginevra, tutto perfetto ! Mille grazie !

Today this afternoon the 2 straps arrived fast, safely, how pretty and outstanding  material and design !!!
Thank you both so much for all,  Michael

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Luigi 
What a Beautiful case. Bello Bello Bello. It’s perfect.

Thanks again, Robert Scontrino =)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Ginevra and Luigi,
 I received your full case and strap for the Rolleiflex 2.8F and I am very pleased.


It is hard to find pristine examples of the original Rolleiflex cases anymore, so I was pleasantly surprised to
learn that you were making your version to fit the camera. It looks fantastic in the aged brown and suits the
classic looks of the Rollei. The workmanship is first rate and the fit is perfect.

I like your idea to allow folding away the side panel which makes it much easier than the original case to take
the camera out when changing film.
 
Thanks very much and all the best,  Walfun

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, Thanx a million! J

To your information I’ve just received the case – absolutely fantastic! Fits my camera just perfect, all buttons
in place and now with quick access to battery and memory card.

I’m really happy for it – worth every penny. For sure I’ll spread your name, products and not the least your
service wherever I can. Please let me know if you need a statement from me (customer) on your upcoming website.

Take good care. Thank you! All the best,   Lars K.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Luigi, Ginevra,
The case has arrived and it's beautiful- fantastic! Thank you very much, Stephanie  

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi,

I was delighted to receive my M9 half-case at 11,25 this morning. I am very pleased with the result of the
modifications and find the case goes very well with my Leica Traveller tripod. I am much happier now that
I once again have the protection of the leather case and I now find the ‘grip’ essential.

Not for me any of the cheap imitations; nothing can beat a ‘Luigi Case’!

Thank you again for all your assistance and for doing the modifications.

Yours sincerely,  P. Delaney
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, Your beautiful case was received today and I think I will be very happy with it.
Yes, my roots are Italian.  Father’s side from Cozenza and my Mother’s from Naples. 

Best wishes,  Sal

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, I am back home and this afternoon your parcel was delivered.

Perfect manufacturing, everything fits properly and the red shutter release mushroom is really convenient.
Thank you so much, I am very happy. Waiting was worth. Good luck for the future.

With my best regards,  Alain

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I received it today and am very pleased! I have packed my camera and will take it to Sochi protected in your beautiful case!

Ciao, Dave
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra & Luigi, 

Today my new Luigi's arrived ! How beautiful!!!!  

I don't not know of a case that comes even close of this quality, let alone the emotional experience
when holding these lovely works of art. So unbelievably pretty. Thank you so very much!

Kind regards!!  Roy V. V.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear family,

the case is here, a very fine speciality of Italian craft. Thank you very much. How can
I clean and care it in future?

With best regards,  Alfred Heidenreich    (Von meinem iPad gesendet)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi and Ginevra,
As you can see by the attached photo I received my case today.
It is very beautiful and I look forward to shooting with it for many years.


Thanks you very much for your high quality work and you quick and courteous help. 
I also hope to bring it to Italy some day for another great vacation there. 

Best Wishes, Matthew
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I have today received my new case (I found out that it was being delivered to my Paypal address rather than my home address).
I would just like to say that the engineering and craftsmanship are outstanding; it has certainly lived up to all expectation.

Many thanks,  Hugo 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra and Luigi,

The case arrived today. It looks great - so good that I need to get another camera just to take pictures of my Fuji
in its gorgeous new case! 
 

Thanks again for your superb craftsmanship and artistry. Warm regards,  John Schertle
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi, 
 

Thank you for your notice. I appreciate it. My friend and I are enjoying your Zen cases. It's terrific.
Will provide you pictures soon. Have a good day,  Petdet

Dear Luigi and Ginevra,

Today I received the half case and strap for my Leica M9-P from you. What a beauty!! Thank you so much. No matter
how many people are copying your design etc, they will never match your ideas and craftmanship. I will buy again from you,
I am sure.

Have a wonderful holiday ! Kind regards,  Chen Stöckli
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

The case and strap with pad just arrived.  It is perfect, and as my wife noted, so elegantly done. She commented that
only the Italians can really do leather goods with such suppleness and workmanship. She will be the prime user of the
Vario X with your wonderful case.  To console myself I have picked up an X1.

I am interested in the same half case with removable back, strap and shoulder pad in your natural aged brown. 
The X1 has the hand grip with it, so I have a question: can you make the case to fit the X1 with the handgrip attached?

Regards,   James
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

The two straps arrived today. Beautiful job on the leather and colors. Thank you for shipping those straps out quickly.
The Cognac colored strap matched my Luigi case that I already had perfectly. (see enclosed photo). 

I will be ordering more from you in the future. Thanks again,  Scott Sharp, California, USA
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra,

I just received the case this morning. Thank you so much - it's a thing of beauty !

All the best, Wolf Kutnahorsky
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello again, Luigi - I would like my FM3 case in Cognac Brown. "Si prega di fare caso a cognac marrone."
I am sure it will be beautiful, just like the one you sent for my F3. "Il tuo lavoro è bellissimo e merita elogi!" -
"Vi ringrazio dal profondo del mio cuore." Best regards from the USA - "Migliori saluti," Ted (Theo).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, Ginevra,  Great craftsmanship work! Not more to say.

I got the package tonight from my neighbor. It took me a while to fit my camera into the case. But now it is in ;) Well,
the case with all the details is perfect and very well done. Also the dark-green colour and the red stitches are perfect.
Many thanks for your service and it was worth to wait. Also thanks for the Leica-keyholder.

By the way, it was good timing. Because this Friday I will travel again to my parents, where I will present your handmade case.

Thanks a lot and best regards,  Christian B.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi, today I received the new M-Mate-M,

Hi Luigi,

just want to inform you, that the case already arrived at my door! Wow … that was fast. Thank you very much for that fast processing of my order!
The case and the strap are just beautiful … very good craftsmanship! And I love the smell of it ;-)  The Leica M really lives up with that case.
Thanks again and best regards,  Wolfgang
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi ! I am soooo happy with the case, it’s amazing, beautiful, everything…!

But one question: do you have something special to keep the leather smooth and waterproof? Any recommendations?
All the best, happy customer,  Jens  (My answer: if wanted, my Coxy cream ! Site...)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,  I received today the case you made for my Vario X. 

It is a work of art. Belissima!!!   Mille, mille grazia!!!!  Best wishes,  Peter C.

Do u happen to have the natutal aged brown in stock? Sarun - Sent from Gap iPhone

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Caro signor Luigi,

le sue creazioni sono veramente parte (di quel poco ormai rimasto) del vero Made in Italy di alta qualità.
Lo dico da giornalista economica del Sole 24 Ore, che da anni segue l'evoluzione del mercato.

Ho appena scatto la prima foto alla mia M8, consegnatami poco fa. Elena R.  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ginevra- I just got my new case today--I love it!!
I sent you a couple of pictures. Thanks for a great job!! 

Have a great day!  Dan 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra,
I have sent you the payment. I was expecting you to send the strap after payment, but I just received it! 

It is fantastic and perfect! 

Many thanks!  Simon
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra,
The (FOR) leica case was delivered today. I liked very very much. really high-quality product. Thank you!!!

With my best regards,  Korhan Kalabak
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi and Ginevra, .

I'm just writing to thank you for the beautiful naturally aged brown with ivory stitching full case you sent me for my Leica M240.
Just as with the Fuji x-100 case I purchased from you a couple of years ago, your case has made the unquantifiable delight of
shooting with an M even more pleasurable. Aside from the unparalleled beauty of your craftsmanship, like all really great design,
form follows function, and your full grip case when combined with a thumbs up grip makes shooting with the M so much easier,
particularly in extremely low light conditions when how steady one can hold the camera makes the difference between getting
and missing the shot.  
                                  
Finally, thank you for your very personal, courteous and responsive service -- not to mention your patient and thoughtful replies
to my questions about how the top part of the case detaches -- very simply and elegantly as it turns out!

I would be honoured if you added my praise of your work to the many endorsements already on your website.

Warm regards,  Elliott Halpern
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi there Ginevra

I just wanted to let you know that the RX1 case arrived the other week, and has been wrapped around my camera ever since. 
It's a beautifully made case, giving the camera good protection whilst still allowing me to quickly access all of the camera's functions. 
I'm very happy with it :)

Thanks very much to you and Luigi !  Best regards,  Ben
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Luigi,

I just received my case today and it is just amazing in every way. 
The quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail make this case worth every penny. 

Yes, it is expensive and I did look at alternatives before I ordered your case but none of the other cases were as good.

Thank you for shipping so quickly and for sending the tracking information.  I'm very happy with my new case! 
My only problem is that now the case will get all the attention and not my camera :)

Kind Regards,  Nick

Dear Ginevra,

I have received the half case for my RX1.  The appearance, finish, and feel of the case are magnificent. 

At first I was concerned by the fit, but I found that I could bend the leather to reshape the case so that it fit more snugly. 
Thank you for creating such a fine product!

Hi Luigi,
The Natural Aged Brown is superb! There is a certain "magic" to these cases which I believe other users have mentioned.
My only regret is not buying one sooner.  Best regards,
Rob

Ciao Luigi

Today, your case has arrived. To be honest, I really do not know what to say – you exceeded my expectation by far !

I did a lot of research on Leica camera cases and I have never seen such a high quality and good looking camera case ever !
Besides the great look, it really feels good in my hands – I love it !!!

As a consequence, I would like to buy a new case for my new Leica M (type 240). Can you do me the exact same style
with the brown/olive leather and red stitches like on the picture below? I just would need the case and the strap !

Besides, do you also have any cases for a Leica M3 ? I could not find any examples in your homepage !

All the best and many greetings, Max
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra and Luigi

Belief it or not - the case already arrived today when I was in the office.
It smells and feels and looks perfect. Many thanks - I can only recommend your work 

Best Regards,  Joachim Oberndorfer

Oggetto: Forza di gravità !!  Dear Luigi,

Just a note to tell you how much I'm still enjoying the case for my Fuji X-100 that I bought from you about 18 months ago.  I have more than one camera, but this is the only one that lives in such a lovely case.  In fact, my X-100 is called by everyone in my family the "Luigi Camera".  I am not exaggerating:  when we are going out for the day, my wife will often say something like "are you taking your Olympus, or The Luigi?".  So brand-recognition of your product is very strong in our family!

Speaking of Olympus, I noticed on your website that you might be making a case for the OM-D EM5 soon?

Now, for one more story about your case.  We were in Paris for Easter last April with our little son and a school friend of his, and we took the kids up to the 1st level of the Eiffel Tower.  I took a picture from there, leaning out with my X-100, when I heard a little snap!  The top half of the case had detached, and it fell 56 metres into the crowds below!  I felt terrible, but was already thinking to myself: "now that it's lost, perhaps I will get the longer-nose version from Luigi".  Well, I left my wife & kids there and ran down all 1,000,000 stairs to the bottom, and found that somebody had picked up the case and placed it very neatly in a place where I could find it easily… so the two halves were reunited, and there was not a mark on it!  Here is the path of the trajectory (at the very bottom, you can see the wire fence where somebody kindly placed the case for me).

Tanti saluti,  Kai Griffin,   Budoia (PN) Italia

Dear Ginevra,

Just to let you know, I have just received the camera case. I have to say that it is the best designed Leica case I have ever seen.
The quality of the leather and workmanship is outstanding.

Thank you very much for your fine service. Best regards,  Michael Jacobs
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,  Thank you for thinking of me.

I showed your camera case to each of two of my friends, one of them a belt-maker and the other a manufacturer of handbags. Neither of them is interested in cameras but they both know leather. 

The belt-maker could not take his eyes and hands off the case. He was fascinated by the curve of the leather around the base of the lens and he asked the handbag manufacturer how this could possibly be done. The handbag manufacturer kept stroking and smelling the leather, telling me that this will look and smell as good as it does today for the rest of  my life and the life of my children – he repeated over and over the words "amazing, amazing".

Your work brings happiness into the world, Luigi ! Best wishes,  Peter

A/Prof. Peter R. C.

Caro Luigi, le custodie sono arrivate. Se queste sono quelle economiche ... Grazie di tutto. Marcello
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi! I confirm safe Fedex delivery of my order. The half case is really nice! I am highly impressed the quality.

You were absolutely right about Fedex and I was not right regarding DHL services. Sorry for this.
We agree to use Fedex for all my future orders.

Next week I suppose to be able to order something for my Leica M9 and possibly rangefinder Bessa and Zeiss.

All the best to you and Ginevra!   Andrey
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It looks amazing ! I haven't put the camera yet but very happy with the look of it.
Thank you so much for such a great service ! I will be ordering a new one once the new Leica M comes in!

Ciao !   V L A D   M A R T I N S
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra and Luigi.

WOW!! Having ordered from you Sunday, the half case, strap and battery/card case arrived this morning (Tuesday).
Thank you so much for the incredible service, it really is appreciated.

As always, unwrapping and mounting a Luigi half case is a special occasion and I took great delight in carefully opening
everything, polishing the camera and finally slotting the case and strap into place.

The last time I bought a case from you it was a while ago for my Leica M6 TTL and I loved it. To this day I still have the
strap and have transferred it from camera to camera since 2003.

Over the years it would seem that you have developed and improved both the design and the quality of your products and
I can honestly say the X100 case is everything I'd hoped for and then a bit more.

The fittings and small attention to detail is quite superb and I have patted myself on the back this morning for spending the
extra dollars and staying loyal to your truly superb and unique brand. 

Luigi, thanks again for a great product which you obviously take enormous pride in.
Ginevra, thank you for kind care and attention and super service.

All the very best,   Duncan

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,  I'm so sorry, but I have been away on holidays. 

Today FedEx has just delivered your case... It is beautiful and I'm very very happy!!
Thank you so much! I will recommend your cases to all of my friends. 

Thank you again,   Jim. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Ginevra

Happy New Year and best wishes to you, your father and family! 
This is a quick note to let you know that the cases arrived shortly after your email. 
They are very beautiful and I am sure that they will last a lifetime! 

Thanks again for your fine work.

 I have attached a few photos like always.   Best Regards,   Alex
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi and Ginevra,

The case arrived this afternoon. It is beautiful; clearly the work of a true master of the art.

I shall be very honored to tell all who inquire about it that it is the work of the great Luigi Crescenzi.
My most sincere thanks to you and wishes for a very happy Christmas!

Yours sincerely,   John E. Riutta
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ciao Luigi,

My Leicatime camera straps arrived today.  Wow!!! So fast... and sooo beautiful! I will enjoy using them so much! *:) happy   Thank you!

Gratefully,   Keith

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra,

 Last Friday I stayed home to receive the delivery of FedEx. And last weekend I gave the case as a present for my boyfriend's birthday.
He was totally surprised and happy. The case fitted perfectly on his Leica M6, color is great, details of the case and even the strap so the
camera will not be scratched by metal parts. Super design and really well thought. The smell of leather mmmmmm.

Thanks a lot for all your help and patience!  The case was a crown on his birthday.

Kind regards,  Elham Aïtelberd
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I received the strap today with no problems. I am very grateful to you for upgrading delivery to FedEx, that has been very fast.
The strap is excellent, and it complements the quality of the camera. The standard strap that came with the camera is of low quality,
and has no neck pad, so I really like having one of yours instead. Merry Christmas to you and your family,

Regards,  Digby

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi, Ginevra.

I got it yesterday! So don't worry about the delivery. 
Goodness, it looks even better with my own eyes. I love this case.. I mean who wouldn't? 

I'm so grateful to you guys. Thanks so much,  Jhang  (Natural Aged Brown for Fuji X-Pro1)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey Luigi! I have recieved my case now and Im very happy with it! Very good quality and really nice color on the leather!
I have attached a image of my camera with case on to the mail, feel free to publish it on the website, if you'd like to!

Best regards,  Simon

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
God morning Luigi,

Thank you so much for the quick response and shipment. I am very pleased with the half case for my Leica X2

Best Regards,  Øystein
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strap arrived; Bill was very pleased!  Always, you do such masterful workmanship. 
Thanks again Luigi, for making the world a better place for Leicas, and Leica owners.

to express my appreciation for your kind assistance and looking forward to our future business.

Hello~ I am Hoonok P. from South Korea who bought the halfcase for M9 about a month ago.
I've well received your case and thank you for your memo and...

I was really suprised with your extremely high quality goods with full of craftmanship. Thank you, H. P.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Luigi and Ginevra,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Maestro Luigi! I received the strap-Bellisimo!- Bravo! Grazi- Ciao. Daniel S. - I can not wait to buy another camera for a Luigi case & strap
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The M3 alone is a work of art, but your cases take it to another level. It's almost impossible to make the best even better,
but you somehow manage to do so.

Thanks again and cheers !   B. Garrett

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Ginevra!

Thanks to You and Thanks to Your dad... I received my half-case today already ! Just 2 days after paying you guys
and 'the eagle has landed' - unbelievable. It looks beautiful and Im very happy.

Looking forward doing business with You in the future. Only Leicatime will do;o)

Best regards,   Kim Lehmann

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra,

I just received my wrist strap today, which I'll use on my Rolleiflex TLR camera. 

The ringless-design wrist strap is perfect for the camera and is outstanding in quality.
Over the years, I've come to trust Luigi's fine leather products for my Leica's and other cameras, like my Rolleiflex as well. 
Luigi's products are not only well thought out and functional but elegant examples of artisanship. 

Grazie.  Best Regards,   Mark Booth
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Many thanks, Luigi, for my beautiful S3 half-case. I've seen the cases of imitators, but there's no comparison with yours -
it's like comparing my best Gucci shoes with a pair of old runners! Your cases are superbly made, a perfect fit and are made
of exceptionally fine materials.

I know that I'll soon be contacting you for some more - and thanks for getting the case to me so quickly!
All the best to Ginevra too and keep up the good work!  Kind Regards...Tony Whit.

Thank you very much for this beautiful product. All the best,   Edward
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Ginevra,  My strap just arrived and it is wonderful, just like you ;-))

Thank you.   Ciao,  John
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you so much for your quick reply.  You build one of the finest carriers on the market today and it saddens me there
are companies that try to copy you.  The good news is they just can't compare to your quality.

I noticed you are selling your products on ebay, so I will find a case that suits me there.  
Thank you again and keep up the incredible work!

Respectfully,   Aaron Aldr.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, the case arrived already on Saturday. I really like it as it is very well made and fits perfectly!
Thanks once again.  Best regards from hot Singapore,   Markus
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi, (ordering a new case),


 
If you have forest green for the Leica M3 (late model) that is my first choice, second choice is any of the brown colors for my M3.
Rough or smooth finish is fine with me. Thanks for the beautiful black case for my F2, it fits great and feels very good. Michael Upch.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, 

Thank you so much for finishing the case so fast. I received it in perfect condition, and I love it.
It is very well-made, cleverly designed, and well worth the money.

I am so glad I chose to get a case from you. I have attached a photo of my camera in the case,
please feel free to use it to promote your cases! 

 All the best, Zhaowei,  FROM Singapore
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi and Ginevra,

I got a parcel today. Thank you very much. I'm very happy with your product.
A parcel came with good condition (no damage and didn't open).

Your special handmade box is so gorgeous.
I brought it to my dad and he like it too much :D
My feeling is very good when I use your M-Mate4. It make my camera look so handsome also.

Anyway, thanks again for your nice Leica keychain. Best Regards,   Terry

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Luigi,

I just received your half case and strap for my Leica M2. I just wanted to personally thank you for your amazing product.
I am thoroughly impressed and incredibly pleased with my purchase. Your craftsmanship is astounding. Likewise, the whole
transaction was made pleasantly simple by Ginevra so I would like to thank her as well.

Thank you again and have a great week.

Kindest regards, Patrick
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra & Luigi

I arrived back in the office today after a few days away, to find the FedEx parcel containing my two M9 cases awaiting me.
They are beautiful and I am looking forward to getting mine on my camera tonight.

Thank you both for a very efficient service. If I were you, I wouldn’t bother with updating your website with
‘add to my basket’, ‘checkout’ and ‘credit card details’ – the personal touch is so much better!

Thank you again. Very best regards, Richard T C Austin
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ginevra,

Just wanted to drop a note to thank you for my new case, which can not be described by anything but "sexy"…i am delighted with you and your fathers' craft
as well as service. The package arrived in something like four short days, all the way from Roma. Wow! I hope you both are well, that life is good.

Warmest regards, RhettL. Beck
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Ginevra,

Wanted to let you know, i received your case in order last Tuesday: it's great, I love it!

Ciao! Jasper
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I got the case today. Thank you very much for the extremely beautiful case,
the excellent handcrafting and smart design!!!

Best wishes, Lars Christer Hyden, Stockholm, Sweden
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Luigi and Ginevra,

Thank you for the case and m-mate4, I am very happy with both items.
The quality on build and finish is even better than I hoped, and when
friends start to eye them with inevitable envy, I will tell them where
they were purchased!

If you do make the soft release in olive (Italian) green, please let me
know and I will certainly order one. (Concave)

Alla prossima, Clive
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

I just wanted to let you know that I am back in Prague and received the case and the shutter release buttons. Than you for such quick delivery, and I'm
sorry I was not in town when the package first arrived and that you kept receiving messages from FedEx. They were holding it for me at their office.

Wow, it is such a beautiful case! Even better in person than in photos, which is hard to believe. I love it, love it, love it!! Thank you so much. You are a real
craftsman. I've never owned such a beautiful camera case. I can't wait to start traveling around with it.

I will definitely tell other photographer friends about your cases. And I will also look at my other two Leicas and think about cases. :)

Thank you again, Luigi. All the best, John
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I collected the case and strap today. They are beautiful and my camera looks lovely in the case.

Thank you ! David Litchfield

G'day Luigi and Ginevra

My case and strap arrived today and I am very happy with them.
It is just what I was hoping for. Thank you for the great product

Cheers, Jack

Hi Luigi,

I received the straps some time ago. I just wanted to say thanks a lot!
They were very nice and I have got a lot of compliments from my friends!

And they are both working very well! Knut E. Oen
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

I just wanted to let you know I received your case and it’s absolutely beautiful.
I am very happy with the finished product, your workmanship is impeccable.

I have included a picture of the X-Pro1 nestled in its case so you can see the end result.

Again, thank you so much! Conal Gallagher
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi,

I received the Leica case this morning. It is a gorgeous, well-made case.
Absolutely worth the money for the fine camera it protects.

not do justice to your leatherwork. This case is beautiful, functional, and fits like a glove.

Thank you, Jim Trahan

Luigi,

The package with the 2 straps got here very fast! I received them on Thursday already.
We like them a lot. Great work! They are fantastic. Beautiful!

Best, Erik

Oggetto: Half Case Arrived Today

Incredible! Beautiful and a perfect fit.

Thanks so much for your product and service.
And again, my apologies for some of the miscommunications.

Thank you sincerely, Randall Kelley
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

Just wanted to let you know that I received the package (in the really nice Leica box)
from you the other day and everything is even more beautiful than I expected!

I love the design and the look of your leather masterpieces. All the matching pieces are so nice looking together.
I'm certain that I will be a return customer and I will let all my friends on the forums know just how terrific your products are.

Stay well my friend. Ciao for now, Mark Polis
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Ginevra!

I've had my M9 half-case for some time now and I just wanted to write you back and say,
"THANK YOU!" to you and your father. It is perfect, just what I was looking for, and feels
great in the hands. It makes the M9 much nicer to shoot with.

All the best, from another very happy customer.

Godfrey
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ciao Luigi,

the case has just arrived with me after only one day of travel from Roma to Hamburgo.
And I have to say that I am completely thrilled about the outstanding quality of your craftsmanship.

Thank you you very very much for making this beauty for me and my M9P.
This is by far the best piece of handmade equipment that I have come across in quite some time.

Keep up the good work it is a delight to buy from you.

Grazie! Best regards from Hamburg. Yours, Hannes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi!

Grazie per tutti! YOur cases are all absolutely outstanding. You have made 3 for me... for my d-lux cameras.. I could not be happier.
I purchased a case for a sony camera from someone else. That case last 10 days and fell apart.

You are the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks very much, John
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra and Luigi

Your products have arrived safely – and how beautiful they are! Well up to, even exceeding expectation.
Thanks a lot! When I can afford a Leica, I’ll be coming back to you!

Regards, Paul
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi and Ginevra,

THANK YOU so much for making my beautiful M3 even MORE beautiful! I didn't think it was possible! My photographs I have attached to this email do not
do it (them) justice!

The case has also made the M3 more practical, as previously, with the chrome 'cron 50/2 it was front heavy. Now she sits very confidently by herself without
constantly falling forward in supplication/prayer as if consumed with catholic guilt. I adore the added bonus of smelling the italian leather whilst bringing it
to my eye to look through the viewfinder.

You have given her a new lease of life as I bought her from a guy who had left her to languish on the shelf. I can now use her, with care, thanks to the
excellent (and beautiful) protection that your case offers.

Many, many thanks for your excellent craftmanship, communication and service! As an opera singer, the case recalls to me the nobility of singers such as
Ettore Bastianini... that refined Italianate elegance that is as beautiful as it is strong!

Grazie mille! Gerard
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi,

I received the half case, strap and spare battery/SD cards holder today, and they are beautiful.
I am very pleased with the quality and color of the leather.

The workmanship is outstanding. Thank you very much for filling my order so quickly, and for
shipping it immediately. I received it sooner than I expected, which is always good.

Thanks for taking a peek at my photographs.

All the best to you and your business, Joe
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi and Ginevra,

Hi I just got the case today, it is really the best case I have ever seen. Thank you so much.

Caro Luigi,

...Puo procedere con la manifattura del capolavoro in tranquillità'…. :) - Paolo

ps: non sa quante persone mi hanno fermato per strada a Londra con il commento "that's a really neat old camera" e la loro sopresa nel scoprire dentro la Sua
magnifica custodia una moderna digitale…. :)))) molti hanno commentato sulla bellezza della custodia. Masterpiece, truly. IIf you were come to london to visit
again soon, for a few more days , lets catch up over drinks… ?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi and Ginevra,

I received my new Leicatime half case and strap today. Unfortunately, I have a serious problem with your products. While my M6 and lenses are flawless…
almost 30 years old and without a flaw; they don’t hold up to the quality of your workmanship. I’m scheduled to shoot this weekend with a dear friend, but I
don’t think I can risk harming your wonderful case!

I will work to struggle through my current condition, but your works is bello! Thank you so much. Few company’s strive to reach the excellence that you
reach....

Yours, in admiration,

Curt
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi & Ginevra,

Best regards, Natalie

Tanti saluti da Austria, Johannes
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I had been working when the camera case arrived. My girl friend called me and I asked her to open the box. She said it's very nice.
Later that evening when I came home I saw it myself. Very very nice. Also very happy as it arrived even earlier than expected.
It fits perfect in style and size and I am very happy that I bought it. Thanks a lot for the great design and handcraft :)
Many greetings, Hanno
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,
The case arrived 10 minutes ago (molto veloce!!) in its lovely box, and my camera is now inside it!
Thank-you very much - I'm very happy with it!
Best regards, Kai
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

Luigi, your work and designs look absolutely amazing. You are a true craftsman,
something we seldom see these days and I really am looking forward to receiving
the M9 half case.

Wishing you all the best and looking forward to my next Luigi purchase!

Sincerely, Henry Jamison
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ginevra – just wanted to drop a note and tell you how much I enjoy the case. Wonderful work. Thank you, Edward

Hallo Luigi,

what a beautiful handwork. There´s nothing better for my camera than this case.
I`m glad like a little boy. Thank you!Best wishes from Berlin

Alexander
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the most phenomenal piece of craftsmanship I have come across in years. Thank you so much!

Dear Luigi,

The new case for my Leica D-Lux5 arrive today. It is terrific! Perfect color and craftsmanship is superb.
I can now see why you have so many Leica fans across the globe. I will be taking the new camera and case
to our youngest son’s soccer game on Saturday.

Best wishes, Jim
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello , Luigi =)

I've received your fabulous case+strap yesterday..... nice color and it fits my MP very well. Thanks!

Best Regards, Fu Cong
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Ginevra,
To your dear father and you, I say molte grazie, grazie mille, grazie tanto, GRAZIE INFINITE ... !
It was a very pleasant surprise to get my case before my trip. I appreciate your kindness and consideration.
Getting it so soon was not the big surprise; however, it was the stunning beauty of this Luigi case.
The leather is supple and a most attractive shade of green. The red stitches and lining are a perfect connoisseur's touch.
The strap and battery case are elegant additions. It fits my Leica just like a tailor-made glove fits the hand.
The camera falls right into place. All fasteners and flaps snap in easily. It covers my largest lens perfectly.
It is as beautiful as it is functional. Your case is both a miracle of craftsmanship and a work of art.
I am proud to now call it my case.
I will show it with pride to my friends and relatives. Thank you!
I wish you both continued success in your business and happiness in your lives.
I hope to commission another work of art in the near future.
With respect and gratitude, Tom Pastorello
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi
I have pick up my case from Fedex. What fantastic workmanship – thank you very much.
I wish I could afford one in every colour!

Hello Ginevra, the case arrived this morning just as you said.

I must tell you that I had high expectations from what I had heard about your cases.
And I am still impressed of the high quality! I am VERY happy with the case!
Thank you so much and best regards to your father as well!

Have a nice weekend! Miguel
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Mr Luigi,

I received a parcel with the strap I had ordered.
I have only one word to say about it: it is wonderful! I wish I could write something nice in Italian, unfortunately I don't speak it. Anyway I have to thank you
very, very much and ask you for something: do not stop doing things that are beautiful. It doesn't matter they cost a lot, take time to make and find a few
to buy (but I hope there not so few...). Together with my husband we admire and appreciate good and beautiful hand-made things and we regret they are
vanishing in the mass of trash from China.
So we both thank you (though my husband hasn't seen the strap yet) for your excellent work and we wish you all the best.

Best regards and greetings from Gdynia, Polonia.

Ewa Przybyla

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I would just like to write and tell you that I received my M6 Leica case in the mail today and I could not be more happy with it. It is beautiful and the
craftsmanship is superb. It fits my Leica perfectly and has made it even more enjoyable to shoot with.

Thank you for your obvious care and skill. I will leave glowing eBay feedback for you right away, but thought you might also like to hear from me in an email. I
love your work and the passion you have for it. I hope that if I ever get over to Italy that I might one day be able to visit your workshop and see where you
make your amazing pieces.

Thank you again, Scott Dixon.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

The 2 cases are phantastic ! I am very happy.
Sorry for my late reply but I traveled through France (with the new cases).

Hi Luigi,

Just a note to let you know the new baseplate arrived today. I've fitted it and it is just great. I don't have to hold the Leica baseplate in my mouth when I
change my SD cards anymore!
I'll be leaving a positive feedback on eBay of course.
May I add that you are a delightful gentleman to deal with! I'll certainly have no hesitation in doing business with you again in the future!

All the best! Regards, Alan

Dear Luigi,

I received the half case on Wednesday and am very pleased. I could say so many good things about the case--it looked just like the picture, the
craftsmanship and quality is outstanding, the attention to detail wonderful, and it's beautiful to look at. Your product is very special, particularly since such
high quality is difficult to find today.

I am also please with how quickly you sent me the case from Italy. Faster than many companies would send a product in the U.S. Doing business with you has
been a real pleasure and ordering the case from your web site was very easy.

The 15 mm delux strap with two adjustments is very comfortable and hangs perfectly, The strap actually makes the camera feel lighter. Also, I liked the
batter case.

Thank you so much. My very best regards.

George

Dear Luigi:
It was with considerable surprise that I received the FedEx package with my order just two hours ago and well before the anticipated delivery schedule! I
have assembled everything on my two Leica M9 bodies. Everything is absolutely perfect and exactly as ordered. The beautiful handmade skilled quality of
everything is far above what I expected. Your craftsmanship is truly phenomenal. If you ever want a letter of recommendation, just ask me. I am more than
just pleased with the cases, neck straps and base plates. I am very much looking forward to using everything.
Thank you, Peter G. Kokalis

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I just received the croco case, it is so perfect!!! I love it sooooooooo much, it is such a masterpiece! In your advertisement, you said that your cases are used
to protect Leica cameras, to me, it is my duty to protect your case as much as I do for my camera! I feel happy just by looking at the case.

And from the packing, I know that both you and your colleagues must treasure and love this case so much as well, they pack it like the finest jewel on earth!

I think you are going to miss this croco leather case if you have only made one (joke!)

Thank you so much Luigi! This is truly a museum piece. And I will spread the news!

Kindest regards, Allan
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

perfect.
Thanks Luigi ! very much so.

Dear Luigi, I was just using my Leica M6 last weekend, it has one of your cases on it and I have to say it just makes using that beautiful camera better. Your
cases are a real pleasure to use, a practical luxury. I hope all is well with you.
I bought a Panasonic GF 1 digital camera 6 months ago. Panasonic designed the GF1 to look like a Leica M and I think it would look terrific with a Leica
Time leather case. The camera has a large screen on the back however Panasonic makes an accessory finder that clips to the hot shoe bracket......just like a
Leica. The clerk at my camera store said that everyone that buys the GF1 also buys the little electronic viewfinder because they like to use the camera
as if it were an old rangefinder. They buy the GF1 because of the classic look and they use it as if it were a classic design, as if it did not have the big screen
on the back. I almost never use the big screen, the little viewfinder is very high quality and very easy to use especially in bright sun light, plus it look better.
Just a thought, perhaps you would consider making a case for the GF1. I think it would sell even if you did not make the case with a drop down panel on the
back to allow access to the big rear screen. A Leica time case would really complete the classic look, the store said that it is a very good seller in the USA
but I do not how popular they are in Europe. I think they might be a good product for you.
Thank you for making such high quality cases, they are such a pleasure, all the best

Allen A. Rudolph

Dear Luigi,

My case just arrived. It's nothing short of magnificent!

You are an artist (and those tawdry imitators on ebay know it,
which is why they try to imitate you but can never match the quality).

Thank you for your attention to detail and craftsmanship.
My M9 looks twice as good with the case as it does "nel nudo."

Feste Felici,

Hi Luigi,

yesterday when I came home from work I found a Fedex parcel in front of my door.
Inside a georgous, awesome halfcase for my digilux. Thank you so much. Great work.

Next camera will be a M8 or 9.
When I earn enough money to buy the cam I let you know to get a new halfcase.

Best, Andreas

On my website you can see some Digilux images.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi,

Just wanted to say the case arrived safely last Friday and thank you very much.
Beautiful quality, looks fantastic and really makes the Leica feel more tactile, alive, willing to take photo's.
Great stuff.

Cheers, Duncan

It will work perfectly for my application with the lenses I plan to use when traveling. Excellent!

Most appreciatively,

George

Brilliant news, the case was delivered TODAY !! What service.
It looks beautiful so many thanks and just what I hoped.

Kind regards, Andy
--------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi, Thanks for being so helpful.

Actually I picked it up in fedex yesterday.
I drove all the way down to the fedex in another city.
they did not send it to the local one near my apartment.
The case is great! I m in love with your products.
will absolutely buy more for my other cameras.

Thanks again! Patricia

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi, thank you for the information. Today I got it.
Me and my husband we are happy about this beautiful case.
It was the best birthday present for him.

Thank you for everything.

Best regards, Anka
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The cases and straps arrived today and are all that I could have asked for.
The workmanship is fantastic. You are to be congratulated. Amazing service.

Attached is a picture. Thanks, Mike Cooper
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

Thank you thank you! See the pictures, which you may use, if you wish. I was worried that the green would be too bright, but it's not, and it sets off the
back body of the 2005-built SP beautifully.

The case and strap are truly fantastic pieces of craftsmanship, and are very beautiful. They complete my outfit in the way that no other case could. There
are many features that are attractive, the hump covering the self-timer giving extra grip, the tight fit on the body, the reassuring neck strap with the neck
padding, the ease of removal of the body case... The workmanship is truly first class, and the stiching is perfect. You must have got your No.1 man to do this!
I am very impressed.

Thank you again. Stephen Kentwell
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

I want to inform you that I have already received the package in good condition, and the strap was of excellent quality (as always)!
Thank you very much for the good communication and extremely fast shipping.
I will certainly let others know of how excellent your quality of service is to various web forums (ie. RangefinderForums, Leica User Forums, etc).

Till next time. :-)

Best regards, Crescencio
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi - I received the camera case and strap this morning.
This is THE BEST PRESENT I have ever gotten for myself. I have
been taking pictures for 30 years, and this feels like nothing I
have ever had before! Amazing! The craftmanship is as fine as
an Italian Renaissance masterpiece! The sewing more delicate
than the sewing of arteries and veins on the heart (I am a heart
surgeon). I will stop before getting ridiculous - maybe it's too
late for that. THANK YOU and congratulations on your fine work.
I will be a repeat customer - rest assured. George
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

The cases are magnificent!

Thank you, Michael
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Mr. Crescenzi,

thank You very much for sending me the case with the beautiful details and Your friendly additions!
I´m glad to have such a fine handmade masterpiece for my Leica.

Best regards from Germany,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

the case, strap & softie arrived today. Thank you very much for this
beautiful case and especially for making the grip oblique. The leather
feels very good and handling is improved significantly. I'll definitely
recommend your cases and wish you all the best!

Cheers,
Torsten
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

Just thought I'd send a quick message to say BIG THANK YOU for the Rally Half-Case.
I absolutely love it! :) I will leave you a wonderful comment on ebay also.

Good luck for everything and remember to take time off to relax, you need it!

Will be buying an X1 in the near future so you will hear from me soon regarding
another Rally case most possibly.

Take care and talk to you soon.

Kind regards,
Kevin

Dear Luigi,

I received the brand new Leicatime case for my Nikon FM3A yesterday.

The case together with the strap and the bottom screw are simply wonderful!
It is such a pleasure to see and feel true craftsmanship put on a
beautiful product.

A good film camera becomes complete only when it is fitted with a
Luigi's superb hand made case!

All the best for you and your business.

Kind Regards, Jukka K.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was very pleasantly surprised to receive today the beautiful case you made for my Leica X1.
It arrived much sooner than I expected. You always do such wonderful work and it is always a
pleasure to do business with you. If you ever need anything from Texas I hope you will ask me.

All the best and thank you again for everything.

Hello Luigi,
At last, the leather case and strap for my M9 has arrived this
morning. We have had very severe weather for the last few weeks in the
UK and the case has been delayed at a Fed Ex depot in Manchester- they
were not able to deliver as the roads where I live have been close
with snow.
Anyway, the wait was well worth it! I am delighted with my case and
the strap. The camera sits much better in my hand with your grip and
the feel of the leather in the hand is gorgeous. The craftsmanship is
exemplary; you are a true artist. I've got a couple of days of
shooting for a client this week, so the case will be put to the test,
to say nothing of the M9.
Many many thanks for your service and for producing such a crafted and
worthy product.

Hope your holiday is a good one.
Ciao,

Linda
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

the black M9 case with red stitching arrived today. Thank you.
Its a beautiful product, fantastic craftsmanship and makes the
M9 look even more special. Let me know if you want some
photos.

thanks again, best wishes, Steve
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I just want to tell you that my half-case has arrived today and it is simply beautiful - it fills me with pleasure! You are truly a master craftsman. Such a joy
to see, to touch, to smell... thank you very, very much! I am really very happy. Thanks also for the key ring.

With very best wishes,

Chris Kendall
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I just got the package from FedEx and it's just beautiful and the feel of it is just very high quality.
So I just want to thank you for the best camera case I ever had !!

Thanks !!
Warat
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

Your latest masterpieces arrived today. Wow, how beautiful!!! Che bellissima!!! I immediately feel in love with this wonderful rainbow case. An absolutely
novel and most impressive idea for you to manufacture such a true work of art. I would not surprise me to one day view this case and strap in a museum of
modern art - maybe I should suggest this to New York's MoMA.

Thank you so much for this beauty! And perfect timing too! Tomorrow I'll attend a birthday party of a friend and naturally I'll be taking my M7 with your
beautiful case along. No doubt many people will mention the nice case and strap.

I admit, that on the strap, I removed the two leather protection flaps at the circular rings. This was because I prefer this to the tighter original fit. But I
keep them on the strap for the Minolta CLE.

Best wishes from (finally) sunny Bonn in Germany!
Mike
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi,

Your black croc-like case arrived a half hour ago. I spent 15 minutes turning it in my hands, studying the manner in which you created it, figuring out how the
full case was to be removed from the half, admiring the stitching, the leather "piping" corners, the beautifully crafted strap, and the wonderfully finished
interior. Then I was surprised to find your note inside and the SS concave shutter release button; thank you so much! The case is truly a work of art. Now I
just have to wait a little more time for my M9 to arrive...

David
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ciao Luigi.

It arrived!
And there's a song from an old James Bond movie "Nobody does
it better...."
Well nobody does better than you on straps. It is perfect,
beautiful, crafted wonderfully with the removable neck pad too.

Grazie.
I wish I could afford more cameras so I could order more straps!

But I will still order another at some time just to have variety.

My warm best to you.

Mark
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi;

I received the case today. How extraordinary, it is beautiful! Thank you so much. I love the smell. You truly make a most wonderful product and less than one
week from order to delivery in the USA? Impressive! There is no reason anyone should buy a cheap copy of your fine work. The quality is truly befitting of a
Leica. Do you do other leather work besides Leica camera cases? Women’s purses? I’d like to make a gift to my wife some of your workmanship.

Bruce Bell
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Grazie! Grazie!

I received the case and it looks nice.
My boy friend likes it very much and thanks for making it.

Luigi:

My newest case is lovely… black with red stitching for the M9. But your half cases are always great.

I am only emailing to thank you because I took the m9 to New Orleans to shoot the mardi gras. The camera fell to the street at some point and was kicked a
few times. The camera was neither hurt nor marked. The case saved the camera … and the case was unmarked too.

The case still smells like leather although the strap now smells like beer. Fortunately, I like beer!

Thanks for making such nice cases. I consider mine priceless!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi

This is Gail Comes AKA redxxx in New York city.

Early this morning I just got my case and it is beautiful. I knew it would be.
Once things got sorted out, I thank you for the prompt service and attention.
And thank you for the button and strap.
ts wonderful to know of people who take such pride in their work.

All the best to you and your family.
Sincerely,

Dear Luigi
I've just got the case. It is really pretty, and functional, as I would expect from your description, and pictures. What really draw my attention is the box it
was packaged, and the key chain. both marvelous, indicating that you really love what you do!!
Thank you again,
Mirek
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,
Sorry for the delayed response to the case/strap/acc.s you sent so promptly. I received my M9 while I was on holiday, and I returned just yesterday. Your
case quality with attention to detail makes my leica only look and feel better! Thanks so much for your most outstanding product. I look forward to future
business with you.

Dear Luigi

I received the camera (Leica digilux 2) case today.

The case is wonderful workmanship and it just fit with the camera very well.
I think that I can get more better photographs to be taken this case!

Thank you so much.

Good luck.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

thank you very much for your help. Five minutes ago I got the parcel and now I dress my M9 with your excellence case.

The camera is looking more valuable and like a jewel. It´s the same if a nice woman get a wonderfull new dress. It´s famous.

I telephoned with fedex 2 hours ago and said them that the only problem is the big lie the driver made.

But today is christmas and you make me very very happy with your work. The other users are right when they say "your cases are the best one round the
world"! It is!!!

Nice christmas and a happy new year - and I think my M6 needs also a new dress ;-))

Best wishes to you as a 100% respectable guy and your family.

Ciao

Dear Luigi,
The 1/2 case has arrived..........
It is perfect.....there is only one problem....I am not keeping for myself.....

Thank you so much for the wonderful service.
Buon Natale & Felice Anno Nuovo

It was fantastic.

Many thanks Luigi !

My case arrived today - I am delighted by it
- it is just as I had hoped it would be.

I know Italian leather craftsmanship from other things
and this is fully up to the standard I expected.

I now feel that my Leica is properly protected !

Dear Luigi,

I just received your half case from FEDEX and immediately put it on my M8.
I love it.
My only regret is that I did not buy it earlier.

Thank you so much.


Antonio
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I've been using your strap for couple weeks now; I love it!
yours is the best compared to the other two straps I ordered
before, thank you and wish Luigi's products are always the best!

the quality is supreme, when I opened the package I noticed
that whoever cared so much about the packing must very care
about the craftsmanship too.

the Essential Strap fits my LX3 the best, the classic will be
for my next camera.

the Essential is slightly short for me, but I still love it. I think I
might order another longer one and other products from you
in the near future.

thanks for the high quality products and prompt shipment,
please keep me posted.

Sincerely,
Leng

I just wanted to say thank you so much and it is really a DREAM,

By the time I will take some pictures and recommend it at the Leica

Please know that this will now become a treasured possession,
which will be handed down to my son and future Nation family members.

Hi Luigi - I just got the case yesterday. WOW!!!! I am so impressed with the quality which exceeded my already high expectations.
It looks wonderful on my camera and the strap is excellent as well. I work at a camera store (pictureline.com) and I will show it to
my good Leica customers. Hopefully you will get some orders from them.

Thanks again! I love it!

Ciao Luigi,
ieri sera ho aperta la rally e devo dire senza "leccare" che è la più bella borsa che ho mai avuto.
Ho visto in giro quelle dei tuoi imitatori e sinceramente non sono neanche da paragonare.
Grazie mille di tutto e spero di sentirci presto.
Un caro saluto.
Paolo
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi,
I love the camera case. It is one of the most beautiful things I have ever bought.
The only problem is, everyone keeps borrowing my camera now.
Thank you! Sanjay
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi,

The case, (FM2N Prototype) just arrived and it is GREAT! I love it, you
made the case just the way I had envisioned it.
You say it is not perfect, but with all due respect, I disagree, it is
PERFECT. Your craftmanship is wonderful and is the reason that everyone
refers to your cases as the best, the ultimate.

Maybe you should offer this case as a regular item. Any photographer that
has used one of the so-called "ever-ready" cases that attaches to the
camera with a screw has found that once in awhile when the case is not
perfectly aligned with the camera bushing scratches result, and often.
Everytime, no matter how careful, with this type of a "ever-ready" case,
the owner will have a scratched bottom plate. I think those photographers
with an expensive or collectible camera who wish to use it on a tripod
would buy this case to protect the camera.

Anyway, Luigi, thanks again for a perfect case. Please advise if I owe
you any money, if so, I will mail a check immediately.

With best regards,
Bruce
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi,

Thank-you so very much for the very fast shipment of the 2 Leica cases.
They are works of art and fit both of my Leicas like a glove.
I get many compliments about your cases from my friends and I always
tell them to go to your website for the very best of the best!

Thank-you again and may you and your family have a safe and very Merry Christmas!

James Young
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi,

The case have arrived, just to say a big thank you for your gift, your design and quality is truly amazing,
I have already pass your details to lots of friends and shops alike here and in the UK, hope that you will
get a lot of business from them too. No doubt I'll be back with another order soon.

Best, Danny
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Luigi, I got the case for the Digilux 3 yesterday - beautiful!! You are the master! Thanks for the ....... too.
If I find of anyone else who wantes a case, I'll send them your way. Have a great one, Mike
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Luigi,
I received my two cases by FedEx today. They are beautiful! Your leather-work is wonderful.
Thank you very much for the excellent service.
Regards, Jeff.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi,

I've received your parcel. I do like the special made strap, it's really good.
I always said to my friends that "you're the best and your cases worth every penny although the Euro keeps going up".
I want to thank you once again and hope we can meet in the near future. Ciao!

Kind regards, Kelvin
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The cases and straps are perfect. The custom grips for the Leica M6's
and the Nikon SP's plus the CLE are all works of art. Art only goes
so far; do they work and fit my hands? Again perfectly. The grip fits
my hand like an Italian glove. For both vertical and horizontal
shooting, grip and case are fantastic. Someone might point out on
the that the selftimer is covered on the SP case. To that I answer
this is a carry and shoot case, not a tripod case.

You have one very happy customer, everything about the cases and
straps is perfect. In the near future I will be more than happy to
send you photos, either regular or digital of the SP's, in their new
1/2 cases.

Anyone that really uses their camera for photos, and not just neck
decoration, will love and order this style case. Finally, The Rally
color and finish is just beautiful.

With much thanks and appreciation

Tom Hendrickson <leojr39@bellsouth.net>

Dear Luigi,

I have received our package.

I have to say that the case you made looks simply beautiful - an
exquisite piece of precision -craftmanship. I really admire your art -
I could see the dedication and years of experience that went into it.

Thank you very much for the fine work. I hope we'll do business again
some time in the future.

Kind regards, belated Christmas-greetings, and a very happy year 2008 to you.

- Petra
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Luigi,

I got the case today. What I can describe it is supreme crafts and beautiful leather!
I can smell a difference when I hold it in my hands! I wish I could have more than one
leica so I can buy more beautiful "coats" for each of them!

Thank you and happy 2008 to U!

Qing
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello Luigi,

I just wanted to email you to thank you for the absolutely amazing, exquisite case you sent me.
It really is beautiful and makes my M2 look even better and safer than ever!

You truly have an art and everyone I have shown the case to agrees. My fiancé's father Maurice
took one look (and a smell) of the Italian leather and was instantly reminded of his childhood in
Bologna where his family is from. In fact, he would not leave the case alone!
My fiancé's grandmother has said the she will give me the M2 case for Christmas because she
was so pleased that it was made in Italy.

I now can't wait to go out and take lots of pictures. I may even save up my money and contact
you again soon to get a case for my Leica IIIF.

Thank you again so much,
Stuart

Clifford (Kerlegon) again, I just wanted to let you know that i
have received the case and also how very pleased i am
with it. it is the most beautiful camera holder i have
ever seen. Thank you
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nice chatting with you… you have a very satisfied customer (twice over).
Even if I don’t buy another case from you (as that would entail me buying
another camera, which I would hope to limit), I would definitely be an
evangelist of your great product, workmanship, and service.

Best regards,
Edward

Dear Luigi,

I cannot believe how beautifully the camera fits the case and how well made it is and how

Dear Luigi,

I have just received my camera cases as planned.
Thank-you very much, you did an excellent work on these and I'm very happy with it.
I shall be able to "dress" my favourite cameras in new clothings made by an Italian
magician (the Armani of camera cases (;-)))

Thanks again and take care, Jeran-Pierre E.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi,

The case arrived on Tuesday 12th February. I returned from holiday yesterday and unpacked it.
I like it! It is just what I want and it fits perfectly.

I will tell my friends about your services but unfortunately they have cameras that cost less than your cases!
Thanks again for wonderful service and I look forward to doing business with you again.

Sig. Crescenzi la volevo ringraziare per l'ottimo lavoro svolto, so che
non ci sarà bisogno di ribadire la sua Bravura, ma mi permetto di dire
che la borsa è splendida....e il destinatario ne è rimasto
affascinato!!
Intanto io mi spupattolo una M6, chissà che in futuro mi
venga voglia di vestirla!!
Grazie ancora e Buon Anno!!
Virna
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Luigi,

As you know, I purchased one of your cases about two weeks ago.
It is great. It serves as protection for my M8, and it really lets me get a better grip on the camera.
As well, of course, it is very well made--by a true craftsman.

Again, thanks for your help and your excellent craftsmanship!

Chris
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Luigi:
I have received the package. Everything is in good shape as expected.
Thank you very much for a job well done. It's been a pleasure doing business with you.

Cher Luigi

J'ai bien reçu votre courroie ce matin.
MAGNIFIQUE... SUPERBE... Elle est encore plus belle que ce que je pensais.
Un grand merci, les photos ne pourront en être que meilleures !
Avec mes plus cordiales salutations

Pascal Gérard
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Caro Luigi,
Si signore non sono solo un magnifico Artigiano, lei è anche grande Mago. Grazie mille.**

You take the hide from a beast of burden, and magically transform it into a work of art.
I never realized that, in this new age, there are still highly skilled Artisans such as yourself
still around. My father was a cabinet maker, and he produced some fine pieces with hand tools only.
I admired him, and I am placing Luigi C. on that same pedestal of craftsmen I admire.
I had read about your skills and all the praise everyone had to say about your work,
but this was far above my expectations. They didn't do you enough justice. Bravo!

And then, to top this off, you somehow got the case to me the day after you posted it.
That in itself tells my you must also be a magician.
(Can you tell I am excited with the case?)

I have seen the cases from Leica, Every Ready, Zhou, and others, but there is no comparison, Yours are the Best.
I think this is the best birthday present in my 57 years of life, followed closely by the M8.

Oh, before I forget, the cutout for the ThumbsUp fits the Model #1 quite well.
No need to shorten the length of the cutout. I am enclosing a pic to show you.

My sincere thanks to you.

Gentilissimo signor Crescenzi,

La half case è arrivata questa mattina assieme alla cinghia.
Pensavo fosse bella ma supera di gran lunga la mia immaginazione.
È stupenda e dona alla M8 uno straordinario aspetto "d'antan".
Complimenti per il suo lavoro, mi avevano parlato molto bene dei suoi prodotti e vedo che la sua fama è del tutto meritata.

Ringraziandola infinitamente per la sua cortesia e e per la velocissima spedizione, la saluto cordialmente.

Con amicizia,
Enrico Pandiani

Hello Luigi,

Many, Many Thanks for my Burgundy camera Strap, it is Truly Superb !! & Fits Perfect !! I am Absolutely Made Up !!
I have Tried many Different straps over the years, but nothing comes close to a Luigi Strap, The Quality & Craftsmanship
are Unbeatable !! Plus, by the time you have spent money on all the other straps, you have bought 2 Luigi Straps !! Great Value !!
Think I will have to try a " Made to measure" Case next.......Talk soon.

Once again, Many Thanks,

molti Ringraziamenti,
Neil.

Come sei bella (the case)

Luigi:

This is the exact color I wanted! Beautiful craftsmanship and
design. Love it.

Ciao, Rick
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi,

The case is beautiful, and it looks great on my M8.2.

There is no need to send me a gift, the cases themselves are gifts enough.
You make the best cases in the world for our beloved Leicas, and I will
always go to you for them.

All the best, Luigi!

I will send some pictures of the cameras in their cases soon. My
M3 is getting a CLA, so I won;t get it back for a month or two.

Ciao, Anthony
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My new M8-case...

...has arrived yesterday. What should I say: Everything perfect, as expected ! ;-)
Very nice item, perfectly made, i love it. Thank you Luigi, also for the nice box
(the third one over the years, and every time with other pictures :-)))

Thank you again and maybe we´ll hear from each other once more, until then
with the best regards from Germany

Thomas
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you very much, Luigi.

In the meantime your case has just arrived, my M8 was quickly installed and I'm still on tour with the set. It works very well and is comfortabe to use.
Especially the gripp is very good to handle!

Many regards from Berlino und a joyful christmastime to you and your family

Uwe
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

My case arrived today it is beautifully made. Not only does it protect
but makes my Titanium M6 look better! You were right I should have
ordered the deluxe strap too!

I will take a look at your website an make a small order including a
few other items and the deluxe strap in Rally.

I can appreciate the materials you use as I work with leather for
cars. Your vegetable tanned leather is wonderful.

The workmanship, trimming, smell and fit is excellent, the details
like the match of the rally leather and the thread works really well.

The trimming is finely crafted like I would expect from a fine pair of
shoes. I would happily recommend your work any friend.

Thank you once again.

Best wishes

Kris
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I just wanted to say thank you very much for the prompt service. My Basic case for my M6 arrived today and it looks great!
I was very impressed by the quality of the product and also how quickly it arrived.

Many thanks,
Chad Olm
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
hello again...

camera strap on the market...so I have ordered 2 more.

would like both of them to be like the previous one I just
received ... black without engraving

thanks again!

mark
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you my friend. The soft release just reached me in Tokyo and it is

Dear Luigi,

Please excuse me for not writing to thank you sooner, but I didn’t open
the parcel until Christmas as it was a present.

I must congratulate you whole heartedly on your superb craftsmanship.

The design of the case is faultless and it is something which I hope to treasure for a lifetime.

I’m travelling to South East Asia next week and am looking forward to
taking many pictures with my wonderful and stylish case cover!

Everything from the quality of the leather to the cut and the stitching is perfect.
Thanks once again,

Best Wishes, Justin Gill....
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Happy New Year Luigi--

Thank you for the beautiful case for my D-Lux 4. I have just
returned to my very cold home in New Jersey after 2 weeks in sunny
Florida and this case was waiting for me. It fits the camera
perfectly and I will enjoy using it and receiving the many compliments
that will surely come from friends that see it.

Ciao, Michael Gast
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi,

I just wanted to write and say thanks for the beautiful M8 case.
This is my fourth case, you can tell I think that they are a perfect match for the Leicas' quality.

Mostly I am amazed at how I could place an order on Friday and have a case the next Tuesday!
Great service once again.

Many thanks, Karl
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks Luigi, for the beautiful straps!

Gentile signor Luigi, ho ricevuto ieri la custodia in pelle
nera con cuciture rosse; le confesso il mio stupore per la
qualità e le finiture del prodotto, veramente molto bello.
Sono felice dell'acquisto e la ringrazio per la solerzia
con cui l'ho ricevuto.
Posseggo altre leica M che attualmente sono nude, nel caso
decidessi di "vestirle" sicuramente sarà con i suoi
prodotti.
Con molti cordiali saluti.
Marco Pinamonte.

Dear Luigi,

Today I've received the ordered halfcase.

It's sooo beautiful !
It's really a perfect piece of craftsmanship.

Thank you very much ! It's worth every Euro !
The fine leather smells wonderful.

It will be perfect !

Kind Regards, Jens

Dear Luigi,

I just received the item you have shipped to me; a croco half camera case for Leica M3!!
I really like it very much. The case is cute! The strap is cool! The color is as I expected.
The size is just for my Leica!
Especially, your built-in grip is perfect for my usage! I am sure I will be getting more and
more skillful in operating the camera thanks to this grip.

I really appreciate your work. Thanks a lot!!!

I just send this mail to expect my gratitude for your deluxe camera case and your efforts.

Best, Makoto

p.s. I also like your burgundy wrist strap. I put it on my D-Lux 4!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello Luigi,

Received my order, just wanted to express thanks for the added wrist strap and to say
I am astonished at the quality of the half case and strap, it exceeded my expectations.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi,

My case arrived today. It looks great and fits my Leica perfectly. Very nice work.
Thank you for the Leica Time book and the keychain too. I appreciate your kindness.

It has been a pleasure to work with you. It was very easy to order from you and your
cases are top quality. You are a true professional and I will recommend you to my
friends and family.

Best wishes and thank you again.

Sincerely, Darrell Katz
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

I am very satisfied with the case and accessories. The grip definitely helps me get
sharper pictures, the strap is lovely and very supple.

The sd/battery case is very practical, still a bit tight but I suppose that the leather
will adapt slightly to the contents.

Charles
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

I received the strap and soft release in perfect order.
Very happy happy with them! Just perfect on the M8.

Grazie, Maurits

Hi Luigi!
I just received the case: it's so beautiful and it fits my D-Lux4 perfectly.
I cannot thank you enough. It was well worth the wait.
Thank you also for the keychain.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you Luigi !

The case is Fantastico! Better than I expected.

I show all my camera friends and they really like the case.
They like the smell of the leather too.

That was very fast for delivery.

When I buy my next Leica camera, I will buy another case from you.

Thank you very much for making a great product.

Ciao Luigi, (par la France !)

Ero già abituato alla superlativa qualità dei tui prodotti, ma
veramente son rimasto stupito della bellezza della mezza borsa per la
SP. Il colore rally è veramente ottimo per "vintage" macchine
"vintage" come la SP.

Di piu, la qualità del cuoio è tale che la mia cagnetta l'ha annusato
per qusi mezz'ora ! Son dovuto informarla che questa era la _mia_
macchina fotografica ! :))

Sul serio, ti ringrazio di nuovo per questa bellissima borsa,
aspettando il piacere di te chiederne un'altra, stavolta per la mia M5...

Molti, cordialissimi saluti, ed un baccione a Massimo!

J. Pascal
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello, Luigi -

The cases arrived today and I have just finished unpacking them.
They're beautiful!! Thank you very much! Or, I should
say....bellissimo! Grazie infinite!! My new "70th Anniversary" MP-4
in mint condition also arrived today, so it's like Christmas in
January for me. :-) Soon I will ask you to make a case for that one,
too.

Be well, thank you again, and I will contact you again very soon for
another order.

Ciao, Jay
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I just get the order, and I have to thank him for his speed and efficiency,
also commented that I was very impressed on the quality of materials
used and to give my most sincere congratulations for your work ,
"because there are few professionals like you,"

without being repetitive, my congratulations.

grateful

Dear Luigi,

I received few days ago the black half case with built in grip I just
bought for my D Lux 4.
It is gogeous and the camera fits perfectly well. It is even a greater
pleasure to have it always ready to shoot and very confortable.
The strap in perfection too.
I will show it and talk about your great work to many Leica owners
Thank you very much.

Jean-Luc Vinckel
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Luigi

- Your strap for my M8.2 is absolutely magnificent
- you do brilliant work, and I look forward to doing business with you again
- greatly appreciated!

Best regards, Vic

Hi Luigi,

What a beautifully made leather case for the M8.

It embodies the immaculate Italian craftsmanship, ingenious design and flare!
Further more, every M8 owner should have one and forget about the Hand Grip from Leica!

David P.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Luigi,

I received the strap yesterday, it's perfect!!!!!!!!
I really like this strap, the finishing, the qualilty of leather, the smell... retro & classic...

Ciao Luigi. I just wanted you to know that I received my M8 case
black with red stitching and battery holder and it is a beautiful work

wonderfully. Thank you so very much. It is so great that I will
probably order the same in the Rally leather soon so I can switch back
and forth. Best Regards- Hal Jones, Chattanooga, Tennessee USA

Dear Luigi,

Luigi,

Your package arrived today, and I wanted to tell you that the Dlux4 case is
even more beautiful and well-designed in person as I had hoped.

Truly a fine product.

Thanks! Chris Maytag

Hi Luigi,

FedEX just delivered the 1/2 case.

It's very, very nice.

For your information....I had previously purchased a xxxxxxxxxxx 1/2 leather case but didn't like the design.

Your 1/2 case is its replacement; I like yours much better. It fits my MP very well. I'll sell the Kameraleder to someone else now that I have a better
replacement.

Thanks also for including the Leica keychain! I'll use that too.

If I need another 1/2 case, I'll certainly order from you. I'll also advise any other Leica owners of your cases.

Ciao.

Dear Luigi,

Returning from three days of a tiring business trip, I found a parcel from Fedex awaiting my return. Your beautiful case and carrying strap for my CLE had
arrived!

Your products truly are masterful works of highest craftsmanship! Simply handling the case and strap is a delight. The attention to detail is impressive. My
CLE has found a snug and comfortable fit in it’s new dwelling. Handling the camera has been greatly improved by the ergonomic fit of the camera and case in
my right hand.

Both the case and deluxe strap clearly show they were designed by a photographer. The high quality of materials and workmanship show that more than
commercial interests were the consideration – a Master had produced these, who can be rightfully proud of his creations!

Lugi, what true works of art! Thank you so much for the masterfully crafted case and delux strap!! And thanks also, for that nice Leica key chain!

Best wishes!
Mike

I finally received my case today. It takes a long time in Canadian customs!!!

I have to tell you the pictures on your web site do not do the actual product justice. It is beautiful!!!
Very well made, you are truly an artist. Everything about it is perfect. There is no other product on

Thank you very much

A very big thank you for the beautiful Leica M6 half-case + strap. The

The photos on the website look nice, but feeling the leather and
seeing it for real is much and much better.

Thank you very much and I will spread the word regarding your
beautiful products.


With kind regards,

Hi Luigi -- The case arrived today and wow, it looks GREAT! Better than GREAT! The perfect compliment to the camera, and quite practical (with the drop
door). This make me think I should have another camera so that I could experiment with different leather, different stitch color!! Maybe I should get the
case first, then the camera.

Thanks for a wonderful product,

Best regards,

Luigi,

It has been several months since I received my D-Lux4 case from you
and wanted to send you a note thanking you yet again for such a
wonderfully made product. It is rare in this modern world of ours to
find hand-made, well-crafted products such as yours, and you do Leica
owners a great service by creating your lovely cases.

I only wish that you, or someone else, made such fine cases for my
Nikon DSLR cameras!

With many thanks,
Chris Maytag

Dear Luigi,

I just received your D-Lux4 case. It is even more beautiful than I expected!

My Leica is naked no more!

Dear Luigi,
My Crescenzi M8 case arrived Wednesday morning. Within 15 minutes I switched straps and had the case fitted. It looks beautiful -- a true work of
Italian art! It fit with my largest lens perfectly. (With your large nose, it was less like an SUV and more like a Cadillac sedan.) My wife and I had a
luncheon date. I fit a 21mm lens on the camera and put the external finder in the battery case on the strap, and we were off to a local lake for lunch and a
test of the case.
The case is as functional as it is beautiful. It snaps open easily. The nose hangs just right -- it is not in the way of my hands. The LCD cover snaps open
smoothly and allows full access to the digital controls. The case closes easily, without hitting the camera body or lens. Oh, and did I mention it looks like a
work of art? And your case feels and smells as good as it looks.
There is only one problem. People used to admire my camera -- now they admire the case!
Thank you for this artistic and functional masterpiece, and for the prompt delivery.
As soon as I can, I will go back to your website and see what else I may need. In the meantime, I will sing your praises on the internet!
With admiration and gratitude, Tom

P.S. Bravo, Grazia, Bravissimo!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Mr. Crescenzi,

I just wanted to thank you very much for the beautiful case for my new M 8 Leica.
It is a rare pleasure to see such excellent handmade workmanship and quality.
And the service was beyond my expectations.

You can be sure I will be showing this to all my friends with great pride.

Thanks again and bon weekend, Larry Pillard
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

Thank you for sending the case so promptly. It is as I imagined, beautifully made and looks great on my new M9.
As the camera has a paint finish I wanted to give it the best protection I could, and I am sure that is what I have got.

Thank you for your most efficient and charming service.
Your reputation is well deserved.

Best regards,

John K.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi,

I just received your package, thank you very much. The colour is gorgeous,
exactly what I had in mind. Put this with the M9 on the counter of the most
lively bar in whatever city of the world, go somewhere else for dinner, and
nobody will ever steal it, the whole thing looks just so old. Great.

Best regards, Wolfgang
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Luigi:

The case arrived, and it's beautiful, as promised! Many, MANY thanks!

As ever, Michael
