The history of brocade:
Brocade is a magnificent and timeless fabric with a rich history. Often used for formal wear and special occasions, brocade features an intricate design that is created using a supplementary weft technique. This technique gives the fabric a raised, embossed appearance, making it look as if it has been separately embroidered.
The word ‘brocade’ comes from the Italian word ‘broccato’, which means ‘embossed cloth’. Brocade is typically woven on a draw loom, and the quality of the fabric depends on the skill of the weaver. When made with care, brocade can be a beautiful and opulent fabric that adds a touch of elegance to any outfit.
So as you can see, we wanted to capture that beauty through the unique, passion-driven block printing method.
The beauty of block printing:
The artisans of Stamperia Bertozzi have been applying their skill and expertise to the creation of luxurious block-printed textiles for a century. Their painstaking process begins with the selection of only the finest pear wood, which is then hand-carved into intricate stamps.
These stamps are used to meticulously print the elaborate gold floral motifs that adorn your linen tablecloth. The result is a work of art that is as functional as it is beautiful. Whether you are hosting a dinner party or simply enjoying a meal at home, Stamperia Bertozzi’s block-printed linens will elevate your dining experience to new heights.
