100 Via delle Cartiere, Amalfi, 84011, Italy

The Amatruda family has been sifting pulp in Amalfi since at least 1483, and theirs is one of the few remaining outfits in town still hand-making the paper that made Amalfi famous in the late Middle Ages. The shop is a ways up the road past the paper museum, where you can get a good sense of this dying artisan craft before continuing on to Amatruda to purchase a few sheets of history in the form of cream-colored stationery, writing paper, cards, and envelopes made from hand-pressed, uncut cotton or cellulose pages that retain the texture of the felt presses and the ancient watermarks of Amalfi.
