A wall full of colorful spools is the background that welcomes the work of Lucia Pucci, the tireless embroiderer who, with the fiery passion inherited from her mother, spends long hours weaving colored threads onto fabrics of every kind. Her company, Ricami di Lucia, is a quaint workshop flooding with ideas, textiles, and love.


Lucia Pucci works on commission or following the moment’s inspiration, creating household bedding and layettes for babies, cushions, and furnishing items. She embroiders by hand or using the embroidery machine (which for this profession is like a pen for a writer) and weaves onto a wide variety of fabrics such as silk, cotton, linen, lace, or jute.

The secret to her creations lies in the wise and courageous use of colors sewn together until the design comes to life. Testifying to her mastery is the piece that makes her the proudest, a tablecloth of great sentimental value, on which can be found as many as 90 different colored threads on a single design.
