Handmade Velvets

Manual velvets are the most valuable among our fabrics: we still weave them on 18th-century looms and prepare their warp on machines dating back to the same period. The most precious of the manual velvets we make is the “soprarizzo” or “soprariccio” or “cesellato“, so called because it has two levels of pile, one high smooth and one lower curly. They are unique velvets, not reproducible with mechanical looms, whose craftsmanship is the result of an ancient art carried out by very few weavers in the world.
