A tradition of fabrics since 1842
By saying Busatti, you also say Tuscany and Italy. Not only because the textile company is based in Anghiari, in the province of Arezzo, near the Umbrian border, but above all because it has its entrepreneurial roots in the Tuscan Valtiberina since 1842. This is in fact the official date of entry into the world of weaving of the Busatti company.
That of the Busattis is a story that is inevitably connected with the historic events of Italy, starting from the Risorgimento up to the present day, with investments and digital challenges. The Busatti family is now in the eighth generation of weavers, with stores on five continents.
Busatti fabrics from Tuscany to the whole world
Busatti handcrafted wool, cotton, linen and hemp to create fabrics by the meter and made up. Those who have had the opportunity to try an award-winning cuisine will have almost certainly tasted the dishes on Busatti’s tablecloths. Those who follow American lifestyle bloggers will surely have read about the beauty of these Tuscan fabrics. Those who have visited Dubai will surely have seen the fabric installations in the windows of famous shops.
The international scope of the entire production arises from this need for discovery and exploration. The roots are solid in Tuscany, but the beauty and quality cross the boundaries. And so foreigners want to visit Palazzo Morgalanti, where tradition is still perpetuated today, and Busatti exports its products around the world, where there is a need for high tailoring service or a strong level of customization.
Busatti products for …
– the table, choosing between tablecloths and napkins, centerpieces, placemats and table runners;
– the kitchen, which in addition to being the environment for which Italians have spent the most in the pandemic, can be experienced with greater skill thanks to aprons, tea towels, pot holders and kitchen towels;
– the bedroom, where comfort and relaxation are certainly important with pillows, sheets, blankets, bedspreads, quilts, curtains in fabrics that respect the craftsmanship and manual skills of tradition;
– the children’s bedroom, expanding the range of textile products with accessories, cots and cushions for the little ones;
– the bath-room, which from being just a “bathroom” becomes a room with multiple functions, a sort of space for the care of one’s body, with towels and bathrobes.
The historical tradition of fabrics meets the contemporary, enriching it, without forgetting the original quality. Busatti’s processes take place in Italy, in the Anghiari production plant, inside the sixteenth-century Palazzo Morgalanti. Even today the dyeing takes place on the fibers (and not in the bolt), for a greater durability and brilliance of colours. Have a look at TripAdvisor to read the opinions of those who have visited the factory or bought from the store and get an idea of how much the family atmosphere characterizes Busatti company.
Everything for the table
Which table kit do we need? If eating is always a pleasure, preparing the table where we eat in the best possible way can be a headache. Starting from how to place the cutlery (forks always on the left, knives and any spoon on the right) and glasses (on the right, low for water, rounded goblets for red wines, narrower goblets for whites), I always recommend choosing the colors of the table (plates, glasses and obviously tablecloth and napkins). The table must also be prepared according to the type of meal (breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack, aperitif or dinner).
It’s always better to choose a tablecloth that is wider than the table but not huge, in order not to be short or, worse, to make it touch the floor or fold it in some parts. To decorate a table for a special occasion, it is better to rely on fabric napkins rather than paper ones. A further enrichment can be the use of runners. The alternative to the tablecloth are the placemats, in fabric or natural material (no plastic, please!). A vase with flowers or a candle completes our table with a touch of elegance that is never banal, also because the dishes are likely to be posted on Instagram.
The Busatti company today
When a name tells so much about Italy and Made in Italy it is inevitably linked to the past. In the case of the Busatti company, however, what emerges is a continuous exploration of the future and a desire to perpetrate a historical memory. Eight generations of textile entrepreneurs generate a cultural and productive heritage that becomes the pride of a territory and an entire nation. Made in Italy is essentially a formula that mixes quality and tradition and it has as result a future that expands geographically, gathering appreciation and customers all over the world. Busatti today has a very dynamic online shop and dialogues with food bloggers, influencers, TV personalities, star chefs, prestigious hotels, demonstrating a maturity on digital communication issues that other fields do not yet have. An interview will soon arise from my encounter with the reality of Busatti, which you will still find here on this blog.
