Weaving loom

Art and tradition of Garfagnana

In Garfagnana the ancient art of weaving loom " has never ceased to exist; This beautiful area still provides great brands of Italian and international fashion yarn fabrics using traditional chestnut wood frames.

Spinning wool comes from a group of native breed sheep, sheep garfagnina bianca, from which we obtain a wool from the typical colouring cream. The yarn is particularly widespread in the territory's traditional weaving systems. The quality of the fabrics that you will get is given by the particular nuances of color tramandatesi centuries and obtained by dyeing fabric with vegetable dye baths strictly.

An art made up of passion and patience. The skilled weavers are able to create 30-40 centimeters per hour and this makes the fabrics made of precious pieces; the more complex work, sometimes even almost a day, is to mount the old frames depending on the design and fabric width. Since 2006, with the purpose of transmitting and preserving the ancient art of weaving the Textile School Garfagnana with the objective to encourage fans of this veritable "art" to come up to his practice.
