ABOUT THE COMPANY

‘BEAUTY WILL SAVE THE WORLD’
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

BUSATTI HOME TORONTO is a Canadian representative of BUSATTI s.r.l. an exclusively family owned Italian business creating handcrafted fabrics for dining table, kitchen, bed, and bath. Complimentary glassware, dishes, cutlery and decorative items are also produced entirely in Italy for the Busatti company home collection.

Founded in 1842 in the medieval Tuscan village of Anghiari, the company is still owned and operated by the Busatti-Sassolini family now in its 8th generation. The Busatti family can trace its origins as far back as the Italian Renaissance and their ancestral home is in the place of Piero della Francesca. The original Busatti workshop, which remains today, is only a few kilometers from the birthplaces of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Raffaello.

          

This dedicated workshop lies in the vault of an ancient palace and reveals two centuries of the experience and refinement of the people who work there with great skill and passion. All their endeavors are influenced by the Tuscan sensibility and the splendor of the surrounding art and magnificent landscapes.

The family began by making uniforms for Napoleon and their craft has evolved to the present day where only the finest fabrics of linen, cotton and wool are produced using the purest artisanal techniques for dying, spinning and weaving. These historical processes ensure an environmentally sustainable production. The workshop is more a place of artists and artisans than of manufacturing, as antique shuttle looms, forerunners to the Industrial Revolution, produce timeless fabrics of great complexity, durability and softness. Skilled hands of village sewers finish and embellish these products with hemstitch, embroiderie and lace.

For 170 years Busatti has embraced the philosophy that ‘Only Timeless Beloved Things Become a Tradition’ and they have maintained the pledge to ‘Never disown the origins, the taste or the quality’ of their products despite the global pressures for commercialization. To this we add the famous words of Fyodor Dostoyevsky stating ‘Beauty will save the world’ as we work to bring pleasure and beauty into everyday lives through the unparalleled quality and elegance of the Busatti products.
