Vecchia Glass Works, Island of Murano, Venetian Lagoon

Murano is an island located approximately 1.5 kilometres north of Venice. Murano is comprised of five islands and has about 5,000 inhabitants. The main activity in Murano Island is the production of artistic glass, (Murano is also called "the glass island"). In addition a main component of the island's economy is tourism. The glass industry was moved from Venice to Murano in 1291 by decree of the Maggior Consiglio to avoid the continuous fires which were happening in the city caused by the furnaces as houses at that time were almost all made of wood. Some of the companies that own historical glass factories in Murano are among the most important brands of glass in the world. In order to protect the original Murano Glass art from foreign markets, the most famous Glass Factories of this island have a trademark that certifies glass made products on the island of Murano.

Our images are printed using premium K3 print technology on Hahnemühle Fine Art Torchon matt photographic paper. The special feature of the light white paper (285 g/m²) is its material: 100% alpha-cellulose defines the characteristically coarse texture. It gives your image a timeless, true-to-the-original charisma with a 3D effect. The hand-made style paper is highly water resistant and the use of premium K3 Epson prints ensures luminous colours and deep blacks for at least 100 years.

Textile print on stretcher frame – a fabric print using modern technology

Your image will be printed on fabric in razor-sharp quality and with brilliant colours and with its subtly textured surface; it transforms any photo into a unique gallery work that is full of life. During the thermal sublimation process, the colours are completely evaporated into the material. The resolution of up to 720 dpi and the enlarged CMYK colour spectrum allows accurate colour reproduction with clear contours. We only use textiles that are free of harmful substances and that have been awarded the internationally recognised Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. Your image is mounted on the solid wood stretcher frame in its true form using only, high quality stretcher frames made of solid wood. The spruce wood comes from German suppliers and is sourced from sustainable forests. To give the stretcher frames permanent protection from losing shape, we triple reinforce the corners under the textile print using metal braces. When mounting on the stretcher frame we avoid using wedges – the frame is so stable that you won't need to loosen or tighten it at a later stage and it will arrive ready to hang.

For any other printing requirements, sizes or framing please contact us and we will be happy to help.
