Unique to Sardinia
Visit the last master of marine byssus, or sea silk
In Jules Verne’s novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the ship’s crew wear clothes made of byssus (“sea-shell fabric”). Kings and Priests throughout history have worn this cloth. Experience the magic of a tradition lost in time and unique in the world.
