Italian Inspiration.

Last November, while strolling through Florence’s Uffizi Galleries, we were struck by the pattern on a picture frame.

Through the magical combination of technology and artistry, we had this pattern translated into a hand-embroidery pattern that now graces an Inspiration Bed at our San Francisco store, Samuel Scheuer. We call our newest creation Uffizi.

Fully hand-embroidered on Italian white linen, our Uffizi bedding is available only by special order and takes approximately eight weeks to complete. Also available in ivory linen, and on white or ivory cotton percale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And, in honor of the frame that inspired our Uffizi handwork pattern, the painting within the frame is by Francesco Botticini, ca. 1470 and is called The Three Archangels and Tobias.

And, this is how it is made: by hand, always.

Meadow Monogram

Being hand-embroidered, as we speak, is our new traditional-modern monogram. Traditional because it’s script with floral touches. Modern because the letter is oversized, the towel is hemstitch-free, and the hand work is done on natural Italian linen. In stores now.

Modernize Me.

We’re obsessed with anything wrought by hand, as most of you know. If it’s embroidery, and it’s by hand, we’re in. The challenge is to make it relevant for today’s aficionados, and to not have it be too fussy.

So, here’s our take, on natural Italian linen. Embroidered by hand, always.

Very proud. #handembroidery #naturallinen #linensociety #livetheluxurylinenlife
