The Return of the Cotta Griccia

As usual, simply beautiful.

And the return of the cotta griccia.

An Italian fashion wonder, an artistic design that was done away with in a fit of modernization in the 1960s.

The starched linen is pressed in the artistic pattern you see here.  That is partly why in Roman sanctuaries you see stools and not chairs with backs.  In this way, vestments and the like were saved from being wrinkled.
