Behind The Seams - Antico Setificio Fiorentino

On our most recent trip to Florence for Pitti Uomo, we were lucky enough to be taken on a private tour of Antico Setificio Fiorentino, one of the last remaining workshops for silk manufacturing in the world. Founded in Florence in the Eighteenth century, Antico Setificio Fiorentino is located in Lorenzo Bartolini 4, in the heart of the San Frediano historical quarter. Today as in the past, it weaves made-to-measure fabrics on antique looms following Florentine tradition.
