Marbled paper production in Florence dates back to the 16th century when the Renaissance city, its art, and its style were admired throughout Europe. The technique that produces a marbled effect involves floating pigments on water, then transferring the design to paper. Today, marbled paper remains a popular souvenir for visitors to Florence and is among dozens on the list of Italy’s iconic handicrafts.
