Sos Isposos carpet

The artefact

An encounter is woven into this prized carpet in Sardinian wool, which is expertly described through the distinct stylised profiles of a man and a woman, that are united in marriage at the centre. Sos isposos, the spouses, is a traditional design which this weaver reproduces with fine taste. Woven using naturally-dyed wool, this carpet can be customised in size and detail.
