Map
4 Via Lorenzo Bartolini, Florence, 50124, Italy

Ring the bell to gain access to the garden of this fabric workshop owned by the Pucci dynasty and opened in 1786. Wander past the climbing roses, palms, and olive trees to the spice-and-beeswax scented showroom stacked with rolls of silk brocades, damasks, and lampasses woven in the adjacent atelier on eighteenth and nineteenth century looms. The fabrics don’t come cheap, but consider investing in a few meters to create unique cushions, or a chair covering, back home. Alternatively, snap up one of the ready-made stoles, silk-covered notebooks, or bags.
