Anna Segreto's company
Laboratorio tessile Anna Segreto was the result of the artisan's experience and passion for weaving. Stemming from a lucky combination of taste and renewed tradition, textile productions meet the expectations of the customers who are more and more concerned about quality and the taste of fine craftsmanship. The accurate weaving of the fabrics allows flexible and productions which amy be customized in size, colours and the use of precious figurative patterns inspired by the iconographic heritage of Sardinia. In the workshop and the showrooms, located in Villamassargia, a town that enjoys deeply rooted weaving traditions, and Villasimius, the wide range of products may be admired and the weavers may be seen working on flat handlooms.
The production is inspired by the past, including series of textiles intended for interior decoration: curtains, cushions, bed linen, tablecloths, rugs, towels and other accessories. These handmade products are characterized by the use of local textile techniques, such as the a pibiones, meaning "grape-shaped", and ittuzus, meaning "on heddle looms". The decorative motifs are cleverly reinterpreted with colours, compositions and forms suitable to decorate contemporary settings with balanced hints to tradition.
To ensure a top quality production, only handlooms are available at this workshop. The local a pibionis and a littuzus techniques are implemented.
