Antiche Tessiture Lucchesi (Lucca)
Silk items may not be the most well-known Tuscan product, but Lucca’s and Florence’s wealth (which enabled the artistic explosion of the Renaissance) was in a good part based on their magnificent silks and brocades of the thirteenth century onward. Antiche Tessiture Lucchesi weaves some of the region’s quality silk and linen products. Items are for men, women, children and the home. From dresses, wraps, scarves, to lampshades, their collection is created in true Luccan tradition—on hand looms. Their materials for dresses are a wonder, embracing and glorifying the female form. They do made-to-order. The quality is such you’ll treasure it for life.
