We are BECHIVA - a symbol of the positive energy our pets charge us with, and an expression of the desire to respond to their unconditional love... With quality, style and comfort!
Our idea was born quite trivially. Two friends and partners, a Chihuahua, our attachment to animals and several generations of dedication to handmade genuine leather products!
Omar is an Italian, born and spent his childhood in Bologna, growing up with the scent of leather goods. His parents own a small manufacturing factory, and today, years later, he controls the quality of global brands producing their products in Bulgaria. He and his wife are currently working in their own studio in Plovdiv, one of the oldest cities in the world having its own old town where everything from the old era is kept.
Teo is a Bulgarian who has been producing leather handbags for more than 15 years. His wife's parents and grandparents have also been producing leather accessories and bags for decades.
Over the years - together and separately, the two - Italian and Bulgarian have implemented a number of successful and some unsuccessful projects.
And then we got Tino. - The first Chihuahua in Teo's family and even after the first purchase of expensive but low-quality accessories, the idea of producing comfortable collars, harnesses, bags and leashes from quality materials for our pets. This idea matures for a while until the appearance of Lucky - the second Chihuahua (for a companion on Tino ).
Months of hard work, Italian sense of design ,Bulgarian persistence, daily walks of Tino and Lucky with newly made or improved harnesses and leashes, selection of soft and quality leather, strong but also light Italian metal accessories… improvement to perfection. This is the process of creating and producing the most comfortable and high quality accessories for your pets!
This is also the moment when BECHIVA is officially born - a symbol of the positive energy our pets charge us with, and an expression of the desire to respond to their unconditional love…. With quality, style and comfort!
