Il Mondo di Aracne: handwoven accessories, interior decoration & textiles

My name is Franca, and I live in Zagarolo, a little delightful country town not far from Rome, Italy.

I have practiced the art of knitting for several years, before starting my full-time activity as artisan and weaver in 2004.
In 2006 I founded my personal trade "Aracne" and began to participate in markets and dedicated exhibitions. Since 2007 I have been teaching weaving and knitting in Zagarolo and in Rome, as well as selling my textiles both in my workshop and on the web.
Here on ETSY you will find my latest and best creations: each of them is carefully hand-woven using the finest materials and the most personal designs, to provide a unique style for everyone.
