In Via dell’Anfiteatro is a beautiful shop full of beautiful hand woven items…Tommasi Loom Works.
Some are made right in the shop and you can watch them grow magically from old wooden looms. Lucca was for many years famous for its weaving, but very little is left of this once flourishing industry.
Step inside to an Aladdin’s cave of woven delights.
There are gorgeous scarves in linen, silk, cotton and wool, a small range of clever clothing and articles for your home.
Watch one of the weavers at work.
One member of the weaving family finds it all too tiring.
I think it is great that someone is carrying on a Lucca tradition. Drop in to Tommasi Loom Works and have a look at these lovely things. I’m sure you will find something you will love. Via dell’Anfiteatro is the street that runs behind the Piazza Anfiteatro.
