Persia-bed-sm

The Persia Bedding design was added to the sheeting collection in 2005 and has become one of the most highly recognizable of all ANICHINI designs.  Why is it so beautiful?

The bedding is made up of 4 different fabric designs. A medallion, a wide awning stripe and 2 borders. This makes the construction complicated but very interesting. I know of no other bedding collection constructed like this.

In addition, all the fabrics are reversible. The reverse side is just as beautiful and interesting as the “right” side – and because we produce the bedding right here in our workroom we can customize the constructions. For example, we can leave off the flange entirely, or insert it into the body of the pillow cover.

Persia luxury jacquard sheets with alternate flange construction.

Allow me to go further. Persia is woven in Italy by one the very few remaining super high quality boutique weavers. This small factory, near Lake Como, embodies everything legendary regarding Italian textiles.

The product is a woven jacquard. The threads are of the finest, smoothest quality and 100% colorfast.  But the coup de grace is the fact that the weave itself is a twill weave. This twill translates into durability and longevity you cannot find elsewhere.  The bedding also requires little or no ironing due to the twill construction and the silkiness of yarns.

Persia is in a class by itself in the sheeting world. If you are interested in the best  of the best…..this is it.

ANICHINI believes in Noble Materials. Flax, from field to fabric.

At ANICHINI we believe in noble materials. We celebrate the original fibers. The natural, the eco-friendly, the real.

Here, flax dries in a field like it has for centuries. Flax is the source of linen, one of the oldest known fibers, prized for over 10,000 years. It is natural, eco-friendly, durable, absorbent, hypoallergenic, and warm. It has an ease, a grace, a point of view.

From field to fabric. See what we’ve created from flax.

Tibet green Italian matelassé coverlets and shams

Tibet is a beautiful and unusual representation of a matelassé. The first matelassés originated with the invention of the jacquard loom and sought to approximate the white-on-white trapunto quilts of the 18th century. Tibet, however, is a yarn-dyed matelassé, which is not common. The distinct yarn colors are woven to create this intricate, three dimensional paisley design. The yarns are 100% colorfast and the matelassé is completely washable. It is remarkably durable and the hand and look of the matelassé will improve with age.

In addition to the process, there is the place. Tibet is woven in Italy by one of the very few remaining master weavers. This small boutique mill, near Lake Como, embodies everything legendary regarding Italian textiles. Tibet is an Anichini exclusive and signature design.
