We didn't know what to expect - especially after having left many a factory in places like Turkey and India feeling bad about not buying something and also about the harsh conditions for the workers. This was an entirely different experience. We were fascinated by the intricacy of the work and the patience and dedication of Marta to what now seems to be a rare art form. All this in an amazing setting (an ancient church).

A magnificent collection of 18th century hand-worked looms all in working order and all housed in a really beautiful building. It is quite a long way off the beaten track but is well worth a visit. When we got there it was all closed up but as soon as someone noticed that we were looking for the museum, they opened especially for us. We were given a demonstration of the different looms and the whole experience was fascinating. Marta, the owner, was exceptionally friendly and her English is wonderful. An absolute must see for people who want to see something that little bit different.

Use her address, (not Tripadvisor map) and head for university area. Marta was at work weaving when we arrived, and she stopped to patiently teach us about the authentic medieval looms that she has restored, to demonstrate them, and show us the traditional weaving patterns of Umbia. She is kind, patient, and her work is exquisite. Boughtba piece for our church's altar cloth.
If you go to the National Gallery of Umbria after, you will see the textiles drawn in the artwork with new eyes!

Don't miss an opportunity to see the exquisite masterpieces woven by Marta and her fellow weavers! They continue a tradition that has been going on in Perugia since the Middle Ages.
Marta does an excellent job of explaining the history and techniques both in English and Italian. Prices for the handwoven pieces are very good. The setting is magnificent! Definitely a MUST SEE when you visit Perugia.

After a fun journey into Perugia on the new MiniMetro we went to find Marta in her workshop. Despite her having a busy day ,she was so kind taking time to show us around her wonderful array of looms. It was fascinating seeing her at work and she was thorough in explaining how she makes her beautiful textiles. They truly are pieces of art and real labours of love. It was a great location for the ancient looms and lovely to see Marta's skills in action. Our daughters (aged 10 and 11) enjoyed the trip and learnt a lot about the history of weaving ( they also enjoyed stroking Marta's little dog, Theresa !) It was a very impressive and interesting few hours spent with Marta.
