Giglio Pattern History:
"On 29 June 1440 on the plain of Anghiari in Tuscany, an imposing battle took place which saved Florence from the invasion of the Milanese and in practice also the Renaissance, allowing a great sigh of relief to be felt to all the citizens of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.
Florence did not forget Anghiari and from that day granted him the use of the Florentine Lily. A friendship that has lasted for centuries and that my ancestors wanted to seal with a fabric, the Giglio. To make it even more valuable we made it in 100% linen. Even today we weave it and compose it in exactly the same way.
A refined and valuable table knight that evokes deeply rooted and precious friendships.
WHAT IS A KNIGHT?
The sense of the classical term is more or less known to all but not everyone is familiar with the meaning it encompasses in the field of furniture. The rider is in practice a strip of fabric which, by covering the table by the width, gives rise to a two-piece apparatus.
The beauty of the rider is all in its use: you can have knights of the same fabric but in different colors alternating them, varying the finishes and types so as to create always fresh and innovative equipment.
It is ideal for important or valuable tables that it is a pity to completely cover with a tablecloth, for counters or designer furniture.
Furnishing with knights gives more space to ideas and creativity and allows you to furnish with elegance and freshness."
"Weavers in Tuscany since 1842
Since 1842 the Busatti family has been weaving in the cellars of the Palazzo Morgalanti in Anghiari, Tuscany. Busatti is still a synonym of quality and tradition, but also of innovation because of a constant search of new designs, colors and models. We can meet any textile home decor and linen request. In addition to our normal production lines, we can customize any request to your specifications. We can make tablecloths, curtains, bath towels, fabric panels and many more in any dimension and shape. We can also create and make exclusive embroideries or a customized unique pattern."
Care & Washing Instructions:
Washing Instructions for best results:
To preserve the brilliance of the color and the beauty of the fabric:
- First washing at 40°C / 104°F, following washings even at 60°C / 140°F
- Do not use softeners and do not centrifugate
- Hang to dry or lay flat, do not tumble dry
Linen/natural color will tend to turn slightly lighter after some washings.
These Italian fabrics are woven on antique Jacquard and Ratiére looms, this is why you might find some small irregularities on the weft which are impossible to avoid.

Washing bath towels or other small product with fringes is quite simple: put the item in a cotton or linen and cotton blend pillow case and put it in the washing machine. You will get a perfect washing and fringes won’t be damaged.
Will the fabric shrink when washed?
These fabrics have no synthetic fibers therefore there is minimum shrinkage.
