When Sustainability, Teambuilding and fine European craftsmanship meet in Florence: Montblanc “Carpe Diem” Olive Oil

News | 4 August 2014

There are very few places that so perfectly evoke fine art, history, artisan skills, and the most exquisite food and wine as Florence, Italy. The city is also home of the Pelletteria Montblanc, where Italian leathers are masterfully crafted into luxury pieces. Montblanc now lends its signature blend of elegant design and fine European craftsmanship to an age-old Tuscan tradition with the creation of “Carpe Diem”, the maison’s first-ever limited edition olive oil.


When Montblanc International CEO Jérôme Lambert walked through the courtyard that leads to Montblanc’s Pelletteria in Florence, he was captivated by the rows of beautiful olive trees he found around the ateliers. He followed the proposal of the Pelletteria team that rather than letting them go unused, the precious olives should be harvested to make exclusive olive oil in the finest Florentine tradition.
