Now is your opportunity for you and one other to explore the world of Antico Setificio Fiorentino in Florence!

This Experience Includes:

  • A private, forty five minute tour of Antico Setificio Fiorentino, for two (2) people
  • A private, three-course Tuscan lunch at Antico Setificio Fiorentino, for two people
  • A private tour of Stefano Ricci headquarters and workshop in Fiesole, for two people
  • A visit to the Stefano Ricci Flagship in Florence, for two people
  • A private driver in a luxury car for four hours, for two people
  • A one-of-a-kind, custom tie and handkerchief set or ladies scarf, by Stefano Ricci from your choice of fabric for one

Stefano Ricci, the high-quality Florentine fashion designer, is known around the world for his art of fine Italian tailoring and luxury lifestyle. His collections, entirely handmade, ranging from men’s clothing to elegant home collections and fragrances. Stefano Ricci has boutiques in Abu Dhabi, Beijing, Beverly Hills, Dubai, Kiev, Macau, Milan, Monte Carlo, New York, Paris, Shanghai, Singapore, St. Petersburg, and many other fashion capitals of the world. Stefano Ricci is arguably the greatest men’s designer of our time, and this exclusive opportunity will give you an inside look, with three different tours, into his empire.

You will be picked up in Florence with a luxury car and driven to your private tour of Antico Setificia Fiorentino, The Old Silk Factory, where bespoke orders of high-end silks and fabrics are made using original machinery designed by Leonardo DiVinci. The factory is currently owned, and operated, by Stefano Ricci and family. You will see how custom fabrics are made for their long list of exclusive clients, estates and palaces around the world from the Kremlin in Moscow to the Villa Medici in Rome. Your tour at the Old Silk Factory will conclude with a three-course private Tuscan lunch prepared by one of the Ricci family chefs.

Your driver will then take you through the windy roads and beautiful views of Florence to your next stop: The Stefano Ricci headquarters in Fiesole. You will see their skilled workers working with leather, producing ties and silverware, and you will witness some of the finest craftsmanship ever. After visiting the factory, your driver will bring you to the Stefano Ricci Flagship in Florence. There are stores, and then there are visual wonders that happen to be stores; the Stefano Ricci Flagship is without a question the latter. In striving for the look of a centuries-old palace, the beauty of this store will make you feel as if you are back in time while walking amongst some of the most luxurious leather goods displayed perfectly in handcrafted walnut cases and cabinets. You will be served drinks and refreshments as you look in awe at the beauty of Stefano Ricci’s work.

To top off this incredible experience, you will have the chance to choose from a variety of silks made at the Old Silk Factory, which will be sent to Stefano Ricci’s workshop where he will make either a custom tie and handkerchief set or a ladies scarf for you. You can be sure that your one-of-a-kind gift from the man The New York Times has hailed “clothier to the 0.001 percent,” is something that’ll truly make you stick out in any crowd!

Whichever location you visit of Stefano Ricci's, you will feel like a royal as you admire the most luxurious pieces of handcrafted design. You do not want to miss out on this exclusive experience!

5% of the hammer price for this purchased package will be remitted to the benefiting charity upon successful fulfillment. Please be aware that this experience is not tax-deductible.
