Peacocks carpet

The artefact

The decoration of this large carpet in natural white wool revives the ancient local textile motif of the stylised peacock, repeated in the harmonious tone-on-tone composition with reliefs crafted according to the traditional pibiones technique on a finely striped background. Handcrafted, it is part of the distinctive collection of carpets by this handicraft workshop, featuring modern interpretations of traditional techniques and subjects.
