Tessitura Artigianale Giuseppe Gaggioli

Tessitura

Since 1932 Tessitura Gaggioli has been making velvet and silk damasks by hand on historic looms that date to the 1800s. The art of making the fabrics has been passed down through generations. Its damasks contain a thread count of over 12,000 in cloth that is only 64 cms. high. Tessitura Gaggioli makes velvets: “Terciopelo”, operati (worked), negativi (in negative), and soprarizzi (above the curl) with backing in cloth of gold or silver. Its velvets are used for upholstery and furnishings, and in formal and religious clothing. Its historic archives contain over eighty drawings, but others can be made on request.
