A Gentle Gathering

Home textile series

Textile objects that reclaim a sense of slowness

A Gentle Gathering is a home collection of slow objects made with ancient restored handlooms that weave following the pace of the body. It tells stories about rural memories, tranquility and artisanal rituals.

The series brings people together, slowly embracing them in a warm and intimate atmosphere. It springs from the need for re-setting our values with something simple and familiar, disconnecting from a hectic modern life to be in touch again with matter and craft. Consciously, and with care.

Its blankets and cushions are entirely 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 piece 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 tactile 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
