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

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 museum/atelier is amazing. The artist/owner will demonstrate the tradition of Umbrian loom weaving and tell you something of its history. (She speaks very good English.)
