Fortuny is one of the world's finest fabrics and was first designed and developed by Mariano Fortuny in the early 1900s and is now eagerly collected by connoisseurs worldwide. Fortuny developed his own unique method for printing fabrics based on his years of studying ancient alchemy and dying techniques and his extensive experimentation with different fabrics, dyes, and processes. His intricate process and production methods, unduplicated elsewhere, have always remained secret within the Italian factory walls. This incredible and unique production remains intact, using the same machines and methods implemented by Fortuny himself nearly a century ago. The result is exquisite, unparalleled fabric. Each piece is a unique work of art. With the proper care, Fortuny fabrics will last for generations, aging like any fine antique.
