The value of craftsmanship

Small handicraft companies, the fruit of the experience of craftsmen who take their cue from top quality Italian design in making their creations.
A large number of businesses in the province operate in the field of artistic handicrafts or excel in the art of restoration. In fact, a class of craftsmen and wood restorers has been formed in recent years, one which has succeeded in capturing the attention of the international market. There are companies specialising in the application of highly precious wood finishes, such as gold leaf, and those that have succeeded in reinterpreting typical Tuscan style with a modern, up-to-date approach.
Wrought iron companies give shape to unique objects for furnishing interiors as well as exteriors. Ceramic manufacturers combine modern taste and mastery to create a unique mix passed down from one generation to the next. The same goes for artistic joinery, which offers objects of guaranteed appeal.
Another must is typical Tuscan stonework, which offers a modern reinterpretation of an old-style product.
Imagination and creativity can also be found in a sector that is currently witnessing a major boom, namely furnishings and furnishing accessories. In fact, Prato supplies the whole world not only with upholstery fabric but also sofas, beds, wardrobes and all other kinds of furniture, be it classic or modern, with the use of innovative, new materials.
Improved quality which has already achieved significant results and a solid reputation both in Italy and abroad.
