Sardinian Crafts

Discover our Sardinia based artisans and their handmade pieces infused with the traditional craftsmanship of this beautiful island. Ceramics, wood carvings, weaving, ironwork, leather goods and knife making, the island of Sardinia is rich in arts and crafts that reflect the wild beauty and unique charm of the Sardinian culture.

Traditional Sardinian craftsmanship is a varied discipline that has become popular as a form of cultural importance thanks to its loyalty to popular traditions and unique productions.

Sardinian objects and accessories have risen to meet the daily needs of its inhabitants, with domestic use and work in the countryside being the core inspirations for traditional activities. Baskets, weaving, metal and woodworking were initially activities that grew in popularity thanks to the production of sophisticated tools to use in daily life, and that progressively gained sophistication and flair and turned in true forms of arts.

In Sardinian craftsmanship, raw materials and precious textiles are all locally sourced from the region, infusing every piece with the atmosphere of the coasts and depth of the internal areas. Coral, gold, wood and metals are also employed for the production of jewelry, preserved and handed down from generation to generation.

From linear ceramics baked and glazed in natural colors and the renowned weaving tradition that creates stunning rugs made in vertical or horizontal looms, each objects embodies the tradition and history of this stunning island.
