Loretta Caponi

4R Piazza degli Antinori
Tuscany , Italy
39 055 211-074

Actor Anthony Hopkins once described Loretta Caponi, located in the flower-frescoed Palazzo Aldobrandini, as “the finest store in all of Italy.” It’s hard to disagree. Almost everything in this 6,500-square-foot atelier is hand-stitched and embroidered by a team of craftswomen overseen by Signora Loretta and her daughter, Lucia. Racks and shelves are crammed with handmade linen tablecloths, silk nightgowns, cotton pyjamas, and children’s clothes. But Signora Loretta works mostly to order: delivery takes approximately one month.
