Concierge.com's insider take:

Disembark at any vaporetto stop on the Giudecca (Palanca is nearest to the shop), head west, and keep walking. Right at the end of the Fondamenta San Biagio, in the shadow of the new Hilton Molino Stucky, you'll find this Aladdin's cave of sumptuous fabrics: great bolts of rich cottons and silks in colors fit for a pasha. Fabric was one of the many passions of Mariano Fortuny, the Spanish nobleman and polymath who lived in Venice in the early 20th century. He drew inspiration from an enormous collection of historic materials, mixing epochs and geographic provenance to create his own unique fabric designs. But while the results are here for all to see, his fabric-printing methods remain a closely guarded secret: If you even try to sneak through the pretty neighboring courtyard into the factory itself, you'll be asked politely but firmly to leave. If you want your own piece of Fortuny, you'll have to pay about $200 a yard here at the factory—still significantly less than what you'd fork out elsewhere.
