A Gentle Gathering
Home textile series
‘A textile collection that evokes memories of quiet times, gestures and old rituals’.
A Gentle Gathering is a series of slow objects made with ancient restored handlooms that weave following the body's pace. These blankets and cushions are handmade in a textile district in the North of Italy, using wool yarns chosen from a forgotten archive. The making of each piece goes through manual and slow processes, where expert, immersive and repetitive gestures leave a trace of imperfection that makes every artifact authentic and unique.
Drawn from an earthy palette, the collection is reminiscent of the Mediterranean landscape. It describes the traditional checkerboard motif, organised in a textured grid play where the dense and soft mohair blocks are gently framed by relief lines and placed on a rough and primitive wool surface. Simple in aesthetic, but rich in tactility and made with a sophisticated method of manufacture.
The need for re-setting our values with something simple and familiar; the pleasure of disconnecting from a hectic modern life: these ideas inspire the whole series. The truthful beauty of rural memories, tranquility and artisanal rituals bring people together, embracing them in a warm and intimate atmosphere. It reminds us to get in touch again with matter and craft. Consciously, and with care.
