The creation of the Brushstroke Italian natural linen range comes from Stamperia Bertozzi. This soft handmade napkin has been carefully painted by artisans, meaning that each piece is slightly different, influenced by the character, talent, and approach of the artist.
In Italy, natural linen has never fallen out of fashion as lovers of the material appreciate its unique combination of elegance and practicality. The creases are considered a sign of quality, reflecting the authentic essence of the fabric. Each item is woven from fibres extracted from the flax plant. This is a time consuming and gentle process, and definitely not for the faint-hearted. However, the secret of this age-old method is that it produces something that is both strong and flexible, improving as it ages.
The Brushstroke pattern is added using an organic dye that shows the tones and shades of the stunning Italian coastal area. The strokes of the brush are applied in a deliberately bold way, mirroring the sea. The smooth and iridescent surface of the linen is not only beautiful to look at, but it also works well in the dining room, as it does not shed lint. Tough and robust, these delicately crafted napkins are hardwearing and easy to launder.

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.
