As one of the last professional hand weaving manufacturers in Switzerland, the Tessitura Artigianale di Valposchiavo holds a precious space in keeping traditional Swiss savoir-faire alive. It is located in the Valposchiavo, an Italian speaking region of the beautiful alpine canton of the Grisons. The weavers link traditional techniques with modern designs to make high-quality fabrics out of cotton, linen, hemp, nettle, wool, cashmere and silk.

Kölsch fabric, a traditional checked pattern with a small star in every white square, used to be hand-woven as a part of the dowry for the bed linen of the bride-to-be. The manufacture still produces it in various colours, even if today, it is mostly used for soft furnishing or as a fashion accessory. Visitors can buy table linen, soft furnishing, accessories as well as fabrics by the meter on site. Additionally, Tessitura Artigianale di Valposchiavo offers made-to-measure services to give life to textile ideas for interior, fashion and furniture designers.
