Marta Cucchia fell in love with the traditional techniques of Umbrian hand weaving and has continued to carry on this historic craft, which three generations of women in her family before her have kept alive. Her great grandmother, Giuditta Brozzetti, started the studio in 1921 in Perugia and now, under Marta's care, it is one of the last in Umbria to practice and promote this age-old craft. Marta describes her techniques, the motifs and types of looms she uses and the 13th century church in which her studio is located.
