Another event that Palazzo Tournabouni held for their 'Bespoke Fashion Seminars' during Firenze's Pitti Uomo, was on Bespoke fabrics and clothing.

We went to Casa Del Tessuti for this segment of the seminar to visit the Romoli Family's business.

Here is the excerpt the fashion seminars' handbook on Casa Del Tessuti:
"At Romano and Romolo Romoli's historic shop, you'll find the best quality fabrics from Italy and abroad, from Tasmanian wools to Mongolian cashmere; the rare, extremely precious vicuna of the Andes, the finest Seal Island cotton, printed silks; and silk brocades and velvets also suitable for decorative uses. But what really sets this historic Florentine shop apart is the courtesy shown by the proprietors, who are always ready not only to find solutions to their clients' every need, but also to offer everything from the culture and history of Florence to training in the arts of fabric and design."

Not to mention, it is the most expensive fabric shop in all of Italy and used by all known designers... pretty impressive, eh?

Here are some photos I took while visiting the shop and some special fabrics I found:

Loom from the 1500's.

24 karat gold and silver thread.

Orange and 24 Karat Gold fabric from 1700's. Yellow and 24 karat gold fabric from 1500's.
