"It would be a dream for me to be able to introduce our production and the infinite creative possibilities to all those in the world who are lovers of beautiful things and customized products."
Passion for embroidery and love of anything beautiful run in the Franchini family. It all started with Sara Franci’s grandmother, who prepared bridal and newborn outfits right from her home eventually opening a small shop with the help of her daughter. The business was successful and soon evolved into a larger store, also offering handcrafted nightwear in both silk and lace.
It was here that Sara—starting from the tender age of 4—observed and learned from the family matriarch, eventually starting to embroider herself. Growing up she spent a lot of time in the store helping her grandmother and mother, especially after school. Soon the brand began producing personalized and made-to-measure linens for boating, a new and exciting sector.
Since then, Franchini Mare has specialized in tailor-made luxury boating, bed, table, and bathroom linens. For Franchini Mare, luxury means the highest quality of raw materials, impeccable execution, and—last but not least—functionality. The family wants their garments to be enjoyed, cared for, and loved for years to come.
Birthplace of the Renaissance, Tuscany is known for its strong cultural heritage and picturesque landscapes. Tuscany is actually the 2nd most popular tourist destination in Italy.
It is a vital agricultural region, specializing in cereals, olives, and grapes. In fact, it’s home to one of the world’s most prestigious wine areas, specifically Chianti. The region also has a number of thriving sectors including: mining, textile, artisan, and pharmaceutical.
Florence is the region’s crown jewel, but tourists also flock to Pisa, Siena, and Lucca. The rolling hills of Val d’Orcia, glamorous coast of Versilia, and hidden gems of Giglio Island also make Tuscany an internationally-beloved destination.
