History of typical Romagna prints
This kind of artisan print is very old and has existed since the time of the Egyptians.
In Romagna it has probably spread since at least the 1400s, they were particularly widespread between the late 1700s and early 1900s.
Initially printed products were used as a caparison with Saint Anthony’s depictions to decorate the oxen. Later they began to decorate aprons, blankets, towels, tablecloths, cushions and curtains.
Today the traditional Romagna prints are spreading again thanks to their beauty and undisputed quality.
How are Typical Romagna prints made?
The wooden matrices, made of pear wood engraved by hand, once impregnated with color are placed on the fabric and hit with a mallet until the color has completely transferred onto the canvas.
Then the clothes are dried and the color fixed. The final step is the ironing.
