Giuseppe Lisio founded his first fabric factory in Florence in 1906. Today, Fondazione Arte della Seta Lisio continues to manufacture priceless silk velvets and brocades just as he did, always by hand on the same ancient jacquard looms and always with the same aim: to keep the art of weaving precious fabrics alive. This beautiful clutch was designed by Preciously Paris founder Carole Tessier, who took inspiration from a beautiful, jewel-like evening fabric from the Fondazione archive — “San Marco” velvet. This stunning fabric was created by Lisio in 1926 and uses the intricate ciselé velvet technique, which contrasts the different tones of light in looped and cut pile, resulting in a rare and very precious material. The clutch's richly embroidered pattern is inspired by the complex geometric floor mosaics in one of the world’s most spectacular churches, Saint Mark’s in Venice.
The clutch has a 110cm detachable gold-finish brass chain with leather shoulder strap and an internal pocket.
