Threads of history: the grand tradition of the Art of Silk
Alternating movements of hands and feet combine with mastery to weave works of art, akin to an enchanting melody performed by a thousand instruments played by countless fingers.
This is Antico Setificio Fiorentino, one of the few remaining workshops for silk production left in the world, thanks to the rituals and precision of those who celebrate the rhythm of life among the ancient looms, like the timeless warping machine built in the 18th century on a design by Leonardo da Vinci.
Centuries of history featured in aristocratic residences, noble palaces, and prestigious villas contribute to the charm of this special place. It is the very essence and origin of Made in Florence.
We have the same mission today as we did in the past: bring great beauty into the world, a legacy of a great tradition.
