The exclusive quality that characterises the Fondazione Lisio fabrics comes from our research, taken to the nth degree, into the aesthetic and technical qualities that go into producing a final product of indisputable beauty.
Beauty that derives from extreme attention to choice of materials and weaving techniques; beauty that derives from care in creation of the design, in preparation of the loom and in the weaving itself, which is carried on at the slow rhythms beaten by the ancient hand-operated looms.
At our manufactory, specialised weavers work on five velvet looms, four brocade looms and one loom for gold and silver coarse-woven teletta fabrics.
Thanks to its wealth of knowledge of hand weaving and its practical experience in the art, Fondazione Lisio is a specialist in experimentation with traditional techniques used to embellish and create exclusive products for contemporary goods sectors.
Use in manufactory practice of hand-operated looms offers to those who design and create new fabrics, with new designs, effects and weaves, the opportunity to concretely verify, modify and check, during each stage of production of a sample, the infinite range of possibilities allowed by use of different materials, colours and weaves.
To describe how many-sided and complicated production of precious hand-woven fabrics is means to transmit to a public much more vast than the close-knit circle of experts in the field, an awareness of a heritage of creation and production skills made of equal parts of conception and design expertise and practical knowhow, by providing that public with the tools for truly appreciating and recognising just what lies behind a glorious artistic craft and behind the finished products produced by its practitioners.
