Giuseppe Lisio founded his first manufactory in Florence in 1906. Today, Fondazione Arte della Seta Lisio continues to manufacture priceless silk velvets and brocades just as he did, always by hand, on the same ancient Jacquard looms, and always with the same aim: to keep the art of weaving precious fabrics alive. References of the complex geometric pattern, based on intersecting circular figures, are taken from a floor mosaic in one of the world’s most beautiful churches: Saint Mark’s Cathedral of Venice. It is executed with the refined ciselé velvet technique, which contrasts the different tones of light effected by looped versus cut pile. The first time the ‘San Marco’ velvet was setup on the loom by Giuseppe Lisio in 1926.
Preciously Paris commissioned British artists to reinterpret the traditional Italian Baroque with modern twists.
