The accessories

The accessories on display – shoes, handbags, hats, umbrellas, fans, shawls and even jewels – are extraordinary pieces: veritable, tiny works of art made with precious materials and refined techniques. The Textile Collections includes small handmade products, such as a remarkable collection of fans, hats and umbrellas, as well as an important series of Kashmir shawls, the sumptuous and colourful cloths that ladies used to wear on their shoulders, originally imported from India and vastly produced in Europe throughout the 19th century.
