I had read about this workshop before coming to Perugia, so it pains me to call the experience average. I give the physical building and atmosphere a 4 or 5 but the actual textiles on offer a 2. When I visited, I had not booked...More

Dear Christopher, due to the fact you didn't experience the guided tour you probably hadn't realized we produce beautiful damasks (that's the actual name for this kind of fabric) in our workshop. Umbria's textile tradition has very ancient roots and our Laboratory is the last...More

We read about this in the NY Times and they were correct. Marta Cuchia greated us and spent over a half an hour describing the process that her family developed for weaving extraordinary fabrics. Her passion and love for her family creations are infectious. The...More

Beautiful location, fascinating architecture, wonderful textile creations. A must see location for anyone who enjoys craftsmanship or should it be craftwomanship? I'd always wanted to see a flying shuttle in action and it was very impressive.

This the No 1 attraction here. Imagine a 13th Century church where St Francis is known to have prayed (they know the exact spot) that houses a series of Middle Age looms turning out medieval textiles that copy the designs from classic Renaissance paintings. You...More
