Silvia di Piazza
Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy
In her atelier located in the heart of Carnia, a mountainous region in the northeast of Italy, Silvia di Piazza crafts rugs using the hand tufting technique that mixes tradition and innovation. The sketchof each design is transferred on a loom and the wool threads are hand inserted into the cloth with a gun. The bottom of the piece gets covered in an anti-sliplayer of natural latex that protects it. Each carpet becomes a functional piece of art, handmade of precious textiles with non-toxic dyes and no lead.
