Fortuny Borders, Stamps, Signatures & Labels





Above the Knossos label used on his Knossos scarves, this label was registered in Paris January 1908. Above the silk label used by Fortuny on Velvet coats & mantels. Above the labels used most frequently on clothing and textiles.


Fortuny's stamp from 1919 "Soc. An. Fortuny" stamp, (Societa Anonima Fortuny), used from the time Fortuny entered into partnership with Giancarlo Stucky in 1919 to produce his textiles at the Giudecca factory. It is not clear when the stamps changed from this version to the versions below, it seems likely that the stamp changed after Fortuny passed away and Countess Gozzi took over operation of the company.
