The artisan

Weaver and creative Eugenia Pinna is an example of how the ancient wool weaving tradition, typical of the village of Nule, can be enhanced with a contemporary style and design. Trained as a designer at IED, Istituto Europeo di Design of Cagliari, she brings forth a work that is characterized by innovative solutions, both in design and colour choices. Starting from the materials, technique and motifs inspired by old blankets, she creates new compositions: the result is a small collection of carpets and textile objects, in line with contemporary tastes and trends, and made with the wicker technique; the wool artefacts are woven on Nule traditional vertical looms.

The collection

The production mainly includes carpets. Completely hand-crafted, they feature a 4.5 mm thick texture. They have a strong wear resistance and are double-faced. Customized in sizes and colours, with a maximum width of 200 cm, they all feature the unmistakable style of the craftsman designer.

The technique

For the production of her artifacts, Eugenia Pinna first reworks the graphics of traditional motifs and studies chromatic solutions; she then carries out the work using the traditional wicker technique on a vertical Nule loom, working with Sardinian wool warps and wefts.
