The artisan

In Marcella Flore’s textile workshop in Samugheo, a village of ancient and established craftsmanship, precious family know-how is preserved: this invaluable expertise in loom weaving is handed down, in line with tradition, from mother to daughter. Set up in the 1970s by Giuseppina, an expert weaver, the workshop specialises in a textile production closely related to the local tradition, as can be seen in the exquisite designs and typical craft techniques. The business was first taken over by Roberta, and then by her sister Marcella in 2011, who, from a very young age, actively participated in the buzzing life of the workshop and who is extremely keen on collecting the legacy handed down by her mother, thus infusing new enthusiasm into the well-established experience. Marcella Flore’s artefacts are mainly décor textiles characterised by refined manufacture, high-quality yarns and a faithful evocation of tradition in the decorative motifs. She promotes her products in various shops that specialise in quality handicrafts. She also takes part in the renowned Sardinian Handicraft Fair in Samugheo as a representative of the lively and important textile production of her village.

The collection

The production of the artisan workshop focuses mainly on exquisite, elegant textiles and décor fabrics such as curtains, bedspreads, fine towels and other coordinated fabrics, woven with artisanal looms in white, neutral colours and delicate tones, decorated with fine bands of pibiones reliefs. Much of its production is made to order and can be customised.

The technique

In Marcella Flore’s workshop, the main technique used is the typical pibiones, in a very fine version designed for the decoration of cotton and linen textiles in neutral colours and soft shades. Carpets are realised according to a thicker pibiones variant, in the two semipieno (half bodied) and tuttopieno (full bodied) polychrome varieties.
