Italian Pottery Tour: Tuscany

Week two of our Italian pottery tour takes us to Tuscany and surrounding provinces where we meet with the most innovative and unique artisans. Over the last two years, these artisans have been busy creating new designs for us.

We also met with the leading Italian linen producer, who has been weaving linens since 1842 in Anghiari, Tuscany. We are excited to announce a partnership with Busatti available at Biordi Art Imports for Holiday 2021.

We have some very exciting new Italian products this holiday season.
