Damasks of Lorsica

In the small village of Lorsica, located in the Fontanabuona Valley, in the hinterland of Portofino Coast, the antique art of Damask production still thrives.
Thanks to the link with Genoese corporations, during 15th century silk and damask production started in this area and nowadays is still carried out on antique looms, with the two sides of the fabric that still bear the same designs as long ago.
The classic motifs of the palm tree, the fine consistency of the work and the complexity of the design which recalls old patterns, such as the palm tree, the rose, the parsley or the Napoleonic Bee, make these products particularly precious.
