Weaving store Florence, Tuscany

Well, what a find. I didn't think I would discover a small weaving shop in the middle of the bustling tourism of downtown Florence. Two large floor looms filled the shop space, a few shelves full of cones of coloured yarn and a young woman busily weaving and running the shop. Scarves seemed to be the order of the day and that is all that she sold. I bought one scarf but the sett was too open, the scarf too short yet the colour arrangement suited me. I bought it more as a momento of my visit rather than an item to wear. Nice to know that I could find handweaving in Florence though.
