Decorative arts in Italy: PassartIn the heart of Rome, just a few hundred meters from the entrance to Vatican City, sits a small shop: Passart. They have been in the trims and tassel business for generations and are still the official Papal passementerie for religious vestments. Their primary business continues to be for home decoration and textile finishing and adornment. We met the owner, whose small shop features a textile museum, and who continues to produce tassels and trims and his family did centuries ago. One of the photographed tassels is 75 years old and made with silk and gold yarns,
and others of opulent detail and fine handiwork.Please enjoy and for more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
