Antico Setificio Fiorentino

A visit to this amazing workshop in Florence has been on my list of things to do for several years.  I finally made it recently and it was above and beyond my expectations.

 

Situated in the Oltrarno, not far from the extant medieval walls of the city, the factory is open to visitors by appointment.  I went with a group from Florence and we had an excellent tour, ending in the showroom where we were surrounded by their beautiful fabrics on rolls and treated to tea and pastries.  A lovely experience in every sense.
