Six generations of Tuscanian roots from the province of Arezzo have been working at the Antica Stamperia Carpegna. Since the beginning of 1900, we have been working in Carpegna, the very heart of Montefeltro. Today, as in the past, we deal with printing on natural fabrics. Techniques have not changed and the main actors are the handmade carved molds in seasoned wood and the peculiar rust color, created according to the ancient mixture of buckwheat, wine vinegar, and soft-iron rust.
