SHOP IN UMBRIA: CRAFTS & ARTS

Crafts & Arts

Craftsmanship in Umbria has preserved the tradition and the ancient techniques of production. The origins go back to Medieval times and the Renaissance when the so-called arti minori reach their greatest heights.
The ceramics from Deruta, Gubbio and Gualdo Tadino;  the wrought iron in Città della Pieve, Gubbio, Assisi, Cascia, Magione and Montone, the art of inlay decoration in Todi, the woven fabric in Perugia and Montefalco, the lace in  Orvieto and the embroidery in Assisi and Città di Castello, are the most famous and iconic Umbrian crafts.
