Think sublime style, unstinting details, old-world craftsmanship. The charm of classic lines and modern style. Sensuous textures and robust colors that dress your home, your life. This is the essence of Anichini.
The company, founded 25 years ago, has emerged to become the most prestigious brand of luxury textile and home furnishings. In an era where the word "luxury" is used to describe everything from a bus ride to a bottle of shampoo, Anichini has raised the bar on the definition of "luxury" with textiles that are the ultimate in opulence and craftsmanship.
The spirit and integrity that goes into the production of Anichini textiles makes each piece a valued heirloom. These textiles are considered to be the "antiques of tomorrow"; they beg to be touched.
Muga silks from Assam; Tibetan cashmere woven in Nepal; Ottoman inspired velvets and tapestries from Turkey; Renaissance replications from Umbria; linen from Lithuania; woven silks from Morocco. And, the search never stops.
A premier bedding and linen company based in rural Vermont? Such is the case with Anichini, whose Old World manufacturing techniques and fondness for voiles and silk twills belie its Yankee roots. In 1986, CEO Susan Dollenmaier founded the company with a singular goal: to create luxury sheets that were locally made and that had little or no impact on the environment.
That goal, and focus, continues to this day, and it has resulted in palpable success: The collections are a favorite with hotels and high-end resorts worldwide. The color palettes are soft and elegant, and patterns are inspired by exotic regions like Persia and ancient Asia, as well as from Dollenmaier’s own stash of antique linens—many found in flea markets close to home. It all adds up to an inspired product that’s at once local and global.
