With its classical style, this organic linen vintage table runner has all the bearings of an item produced in a byegone era. Yet this calm maturity has such an eternal appeal that it is very much in keeping with modern tastes.
What makes this particular table runner so unique is that the artisan has allowed the genuine handcrafted technique to shine through. At the intersection of the lines, at the corners, you see the way the artisan has layered up the stripes. This amplifies the human quality that distinguishes a very special creation like this from anything else.
The hemp linen used to craft this tea towel was hand-woven by master weavers more than 75 years ago. And recently, the master Italian artisans at Stamperia Bertozzi have handprinted the decale design onto the ancient fabric. The combination of this handweaving and hand-printing technique has resulted in a table runner that is truly one of a kind. To set eyes upon this authentically Italian creation is to be taken back in time, while also giving you the unmatched quality that you would expect of first-class contemporary craftsmanship.
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.
