    About the Producer

    Located in Santa Sofia, a small city nestled within the Romagna region, Peromatto is a contemporary textile block printing workshop with roots in the ancient artisanal tradition of “rust printing,” or stampa a ruggine, particular to the Romagna region of Italy. By combining modern laser technology with traditional wooden block stamps, they are able to carve out their nature-inspired designs with precision while still following the traditional method of hand-block rust printing. Each wooden block is then dipped in a natural rust-extracted dye and imprinted onto linen or cotton fabrics by hand with the help of a mallet. Learn more about the art of rust printing.


    100% natural linen, uses natural dyes and colors. Dye is created following an ancient recipe with three simple ingredients: vinegar, flour, and rust. 

    Care Instructions

    Machine washable. Rust-dye stamped linens are extremely durable! Upon first use, we recommend washing with a bit of bleach, which will help brighten up the color of the rust-based dye itself. For future care, gentle bleach treatment for stains will not affect the dyed patterns. Hang dry and iron for best results.

    Nota bene: Do not wash with hydrogen peroxide-based stain removers or color-safe bleach as these products will cause the color to oxidize and eventually wear holes into the fabric. Stick to natural Marseille soap, vegetable-based glycerin soaps, and regular bleach.
