Ombre from dark to light shades of gray/natural wool.
The Greige Design rugs were inspired by Maddalena’s roots in Italy and her 25 years working with indigenous women in Chiapas, Mexico. The design has its origins in the rich textile traditions of Sardinia.
The rugs are crafted with the wool from a special breed of sheep which evolved over 500 years in the mountains of Chiapas and hand spun by Mayan women on pre-hispanic drop spindles. This special wool is untreated allowing it to absorb deep saturations of color from the natural dyes. With this combination of elements Maddalena creates fascinating textures and patterns. Textile artist Maddalena Forcella brings her Italian sensibility to a Mexican context, using her eye and heart to create elegant and utilitarian pieces of art. Playing with textures, color and experimenting with materials Maddalena is a masterful artist and designer.
This is an artisanal product.
Warp: Light indigo dyed cotton
Edging: Crochet stitch in dark gray to compliment the different shades of gray in rug
