The Chevron design that has been so expertly hand-printed onto this peerless bath towel is absolutely timeless in its appearance and its allure. And the striped border has been cleverly crafted in an imperfect style, to conjure a sense of rustic charm with this lovely organic linen bath towel. In fact, the master Italian artisans at Stamperia Bertozzi have handprinted this design recently. But from its look, it could have been created at any time in the last few centuries. This is largely due to the authentic handcrafted technique that the artisans have allowed to shine through, adding to the human character that distinguishes a very special creation like this from anything else. The hemp linen used to craft this bath towel was hand-woven by master weavers more than 75 years ago. The combination of the hand-weaving and the hand-printing technique has resulted in a bath towel that is truly one of a kind. To hold this authentically Italian creation in your hand is to be taken back in time, while also giving you the unmatched quality that you would expect of first-class contemporary craftsmanship. Since 1920, the Bertozzi family have been creating the most wonderful hand-printed and hand-painted fabrics. Using traditional techniques, these master artisans hand-carve blocks of pear wood to produce the stamps they use to print their own designs onto the fabric. The rich and vibrant colors they hand-mix come from closely guarded family recipes that are passed from generation to generation. Variations in finish or appearance are not considered imperfections, but are the mark of a unique handmade item.
