Rice Carpet

The artefact

This large spectacular carpet in Sardinian wool and cotton in natural white stands out for its fine abstract decoration created through irregular effects of the traditional pibiones relief technique. It is part of the Moving Landscapes collection, designed by the designer Paulina Herrera and inspired, with fine references, to the landscapes of the island and the characteristic mistral wind that blows through the vegetation and tree-tops, carrying and stirring leaves in new and evocative aerial compositions. The collection consists of 6 carpets with different colour effects.
