Discover traditional Umbrian textiles

45 minutes 3-45 people5 euros per person

In 1921, Giuditta Brozzetti opened the Textile Workshop of Hand Weaving where she reproduced traditional Umbrian textiles and some of the most beautiful damasks of the past. In 2004, Marta Cucchia, Giuditta’s great-granddaughter, turned the workshop into a museum where visitors can discover the history of these beautiful fabrics and the secrets of their creation. Remarkably, the workshop uses both the four-heddle traditional manual foot-looms to produce the rustic textiles so typical of these rural areas, as well as jacquard looms to weave both damasks and Perugia tablecloths.
