Antico Setificio Fiorentino

An age-old tradition of fine craftsmanship is plied along the banks of the Arno

Based at the heart Florence, this silk weaver, with a noble history dating back to 1780, keeps the the city’s long tradition of handicraft alive at its factory and showroom. Its specialities include brocades in silk and linen as well as damasks and the “Ermisino”, a unique, iridescent taffeta from the Renaissance – all extraordinary textiles still woven on centuries-old hand  and semi-mechanical looms. Apart from an immense archive of their own drawings and colours, everything is custom-made and personalised.
