I Tappeti – Land

Contemporary art and age-old handicraft traditions come together in the I Tappeti Land rugs. These solid coloured “canvases” by Ettore Spalletti over which colour seems to fluctuate silently inspire the simple large painted backgrounds that run across the pure wool rugs. The colour of this yarn offers up extraordinarily saturated deep shades of rust red, coal grey, dark blue, and nude. They are the hues of the earth. Indeed, the name Land alludes to the special wool-weaving technique used for these rugs; the resulting textural effect recalls ploughed fields viewed from above.

This ancient hand weaving procedure called Sumak bestows the rug with strength and body. The weavers wrap the woollen weft threads two by two around robust cotton threads that create the structure, forming small braids that mark the rhythm of the surfaces. The edging – also made out of wool – is hand-woven all around the rug with careful finishing work.
