TAFArtistic Florentine Tablecloths – was founded in 1919 and run by the famous family of artisans of handmade embroidery Cappellini – Chiti.

In 1954 both the laboratory and the shop were rebuilt in today's headquarters of Por Santa Maria by Cavalier Luigi Cappellini and his wife Clara.

The decor of the store is still that of "50s Florentine modern style" dear to the Masters Michelucci and Gamberini.

TAF is worldwide famous for the production of handmade embroidery including hand-embroidered ceremony clothes for children, hand-embroidered tablecloths and bed linens and embroidered home accessories.

The shop offers a wide selection of embroidered sheets and hand-embroidered placemates with classic and fancy designs available in various sizes.

On request, our customers can also order custom hand-made tablecloths coordinated with their chinaware or linens and personalize them with initials.

TAF has taken great pride in providing bridal trousseaus for queens from around the world, wives of great Italian and foreign heads of state and international movie stars as well as table linens for embassies and royal banquets, embroidered with great care and craftsmanship by skilled embroiderers.

The historical TAF store was then joined in 1957 from another one - always in Por Santa Maria - specialized in hand-embroidered children ceremony clothes and christening gowns, embroidered outfits for babies and female's clothing from 0 to 12 years, along with embroidered towels and gifts items.

Our company has been awarded several prizes, among which we can recall the first one for “Tavole Imbandite” event, held at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence in the early 60s.

On December 2002, we have been assigned the gold medal of the “Firenze Produttiva” award, an important recognition for TAF commitment and participation in the economic and social development of the city.
