Vintage Hemp Linen
The vintage linen that makes up our hand towels, bath towels, tea towels, table runners and cushion covers was hand-woven by master weavers over 75 years ago, so it is fair to say that these antique, vintage hemp linen creations are extremely rare and prized. What makes these vintage linen pieces even rarer is the fact that the celebrated Italian artisans at Stamperia Bertozzi have recently hand-printed one-of-a-kind designs and colours onto the linen, blending the antique with the modern.
Exclusive, hand-mixed, natural dyes are used to create the vivid colours on our vintage hemp creations. To create vintage looks to match the fabric, these skilled artisans have employed hand-printing techniques, such as the printing process of using hand-carved blocks of pear wood to apply designs. In this way, Bertozzi have crafted truly unique, authentically Italian creations that will transport you into the past, while also offering all the quality that you would expect of high-end contemporary textile craftsmanship.
