Il settore

The traditional textile industry offers a remarkable production, resulting from the mediation between history and traditional knowledge and the needs of contemporary living. The craftsmen working on the island – almost all of them pursuing family traditions, having been trained since they were children in the use of hand looms – now offer a very high quality production, full of archaic memories but, at the same time, featuring a modern design, a reinterpretation of the past to give new life to it. Nowadays, the textiles made in Sardinia feature a distinctive Sardinian character, the core element of Sardinian craftsmanship, but they also offer new shapes, models and materials with a strong and modern personality.
