Busatti


I work at a University and recently one of our faculty traveled to Italy to photograph the Busatti Weaving process. This is a family owned business located in Anghiari, Italy and believe it or not, they import their cotton from Arizona where they say the best cotton in the world originates.

He brought me some samples of their woven textiles and they are just beautiful. I thought you might enjoy a glimpse of these marvelous works of art! Such lovely pieces, and I think I will just frame them.

Wow -- those are gorgeous. I think I'd frame them too -- they're certainly not something I'd want to tuck away!

How pretty they are. And to think the cotton is grown in Arkansas.

Oh wow! Those are amazing! I love everything about them -- the colors and the pattern!

Definitely frame them. The colors are so pretty. And nice to know the cotton is from the US. Sort of a turnaround isn't it. Please post a pic if you frame them.
