Tablecloth

The artefact

These tablecloth and napkins made of cotton and raw linen, embellished with rilief a pibiones patterns, are inspired by the traditional design of a stylised lapwing. The sophisticated fabric characterized by the horizontal lines is made by manually alternating threads of different thickness and colour. Edges are refined with a precious hemstitch.
