Personalised books and beautiful frames decorated with precious Venetian fabrics.
Over 20 years ago, Adriano Barbieri decided to continue his father’s business and become an artisanal bookbinder.
While Adriano’s main activity is to binds books, he also creates beautiful frames for paintings and for photos decorated with precious Fortuny and Rubelli fabrics, two of the most renown and appreciated Venetian weaving brands.
Since every step of the crafting takes place in the “Legatoria Barbieri” and is entirely manual, some of the crafts created by Adriano’s skilled hands require countless hours of work and extreme precision, but the final result is nothing else but perfect.
If you desire to have a wonderful and unique hand crafted book, in which to collect your thoughts or a frame created with an exquisite fabric to hold your favorite picture, ask Adriano and he will craft just what you were looking for.
