We strongly advise you to pay a visit to this town. You’ll be enchanted….
A big thank to Mrs. Anna Lisa Piccioni, President of “Academy of Deruta Work” who has created for us beautiful beads, buttons and sewing accessories, and enabled us to design our models in tune with the antique Deruta designs.
Each majolica/pottery button and bead is unique since it is handmade and painted only for Giulia Punti Antichi.
For this reason your “Deruta embroidery” is a unique piece of art.
