The Granducale design draws its inspiration from the early Renaissance period, but the skilled artisans of Stamperia Bertozzi first hand-printed the highly ornate floral motifs back in the 1930s, using the same style of hand-carved blocks of pear wood that have been applied to this linen tablecloth that we present to you today. In honour of the original, the talented craftsmen have remained as true to the earliest archived design as possible, but this time, the block-printed embellishments have been applied to the linen in a gleaming shade of gold.
The stamps that have been used to apply the motifs to the cloth are not alone in remaining in line with tradition, this magnificent, regal colour is the result of a hand-mixed recipe that has been passed down the family and kept secret from generation to generation. The appealing gold colour contrasts with its unimposing, yet charming white backdrop – the natural, organic linen from which the tablecloth has been made.
The table linen shows its intricacy, as well as the level of care and precision that has been taken in the process of its creation through its use of a multitude of separate motifs, each having been applied using its own distinct block. The tablecloth’s drop—an area constantly on display to your guests no matter the amount of glassware and tableware that sits upon the table—features different designs to those in the centre of the cloth, for example. The elaboration of the tablecloth’s final design is immediately apparent, resulting in a finished product that is fit for dining events of the utmost luxury.
A true triumph of a handcrafted table cover, the Granducale hand-printed linen tablecloth will be the star of the show at every occasion.
