Ring the bell to gain access to the garden of this fabric workshop owned by the Pucci dynasty and opened in 1786. Wander past the climbing roses, palms, and olive trees to the spice-and-beeswax-scented showroom stacked with rolls of silk brocades and damasks woven in the adjacent atelier on 18th- and 19th-century looms. The fabrics don’t come cheap, but consider investing in a few yards to create unique cushions or a chair covering back home. Alternatively, snap up one of the ready-made stoles, silk-covered notebooks, or bags.
