If you’re looking to introduce a clean and contemporary aesthetic into your bedroom – with the finest quality bed linen – the Elisse selection is the one for you. This artisan handcrafted and unique design manages to be very smart and stylish while also having a relaxed air to it. That relaxed feel is thanks to the beautiful, naturally crumpled linen used to craft this special creation.
An unconventional blend of printing techniques is on display with this very fine creation. Where you see the white Elisse design on the coloured background, the artisan has applied an elaborate method called ‘negative printing’ to create the design. They start by hand-printing the elisse design onto the linen using a wax. And they then handpaint the colour onto the entire fabric before washing the wax out of the fabric to reveal the elisse design that remains in the natural linen tone.
Where you see the elisse design in grey on the white background, the design has been printed directly onto the fabric in the traditional way, using a hand-mixed dye.
It’s a feeling of pure happiness when you climb into bed and feel this extraordinarily soft, organic Italian linen surround you. It’s a genuine pleasure simply to run your hand across this luxurious fabric – so you can imagine how good it feels when it’s fully wrapped around you. It’s sheer luxury and indulgence – a feeling you’ll want to continue enjoying for as long as time allows.
This very special duvet cover is crafted from only the smoothest, finest, expertly selected linen, which is woven in the traditional way, in an Italian artisan workshop, on a shuttle loom.
And with this stunning design being realised entirely through traditional artisan techniques – using human hands – it shows itself in a different way every time. You can actually see the artisan’s brush strokes and the direction of their movement across the fabric. So every one of these beautiful creations is truly unique and individual, with a character of its own.
Since 1920, the Bertozzi family have been creating the most wonderful hand-printed and hand-painted fabrics. Using traditional techniques, these master artisans hand-carve blocks of pear wood to produce the stamps they use to print their own designs onto the fabric. The rich and vibrant colours they hand-mix come from closely guarded family recipes that are passed from generation to generation.
Variations in finish or appearance are not considered imperfections, but are the mark of a unique handmade item.
