• The long history
    of Stamperia
    Marchi

    We use antique and modern fabrics to create accessories for the home, for people and for the traditional Romagnola kitchen, with a touch of originality.

  • A collection
    of unique
    hand-painted items

    Since 1991, Lara Marchi has been making beautiful items using the brush painting technique, creating colour contrasts that are utterly unique.

  • Built in 1633, with its weight it stretches fabrics and embellishes them making them soft, compact and shiny.

We've been printing fabrics

since the 17th century

Our work is based on a lengthy and precise processing of the fabrics, which is carried out entirely by hand. Every item we produce requires loving care and traditional procedures skilfully applied. Here we measure time in quality, not quantity.

Here you’ll find antique and modern fabrics, accessories for the home and for people, and items for the traditional Romagnola kitchen, with a touch of originality. Our broad range of antique prints means you can choose how your item is made.

Visit the Museum

Antica Stamperia Marchi is more than a workshop and a boutique. It’s a place brimming with history, with smells and materials; a place where you’ll rediscover ancient arts, tools and methods.
It’s also a museum offering guided visits for groups and individuals on request.
