Tessart Cogoni stems from a long-time family experience in textile arts. The refined fabrics are made, as usual, by the skilled hands of weavers, working on flat handlooms, in accordance with the local traditional technique, but also with the introduction of innovative solutions. In addition to the products made according to tradition, she develops an important and exclusive line of furniture designed in collaboration with designers and architects. For decades, Tessart has displayed its products in the main national market trade fairs, in Milan, Rome and Florence. At the Villamassargia workshop and the showroom of Villasimius, its fabrics may be admired to appreciate their details and quality.
Products include functional and decorative fabrics for home textiles and settings in general: carpets, tapestries, curtains, tablecloths, sheets. The decorative motifs are inspired by traditional patterns. Geometric forms, floral and plant motifs and complex themes, heraldic and allegorical symbols, religious and magical marks. Even the colours are inspired by tradition, by the natural colours of local landscape.
All products are manufactured with handlooms, applying ancient techniques, such as a pibiones and a litzus, typical of the village of Villamassargia. The threads used are natural only, including wool, linen and cotton, resulting in top quality fabrics.
