Diart carpet

The artefact

The original Diart carpet is the result of remarkable knowledge, cooperation and exchange between Sardinian and Tunisian weavers. The elegant geometric composition is expertly designed in the charismatic combination of elements typical of the textile tradition of these two cultures, with harmonious bands and a tasteful combination of colours. It is handcrafted using the semipieno (half-bodied) pibiones local relief technique combined with the knotted technique taken from Tunisian culture. Developed as a prototype and produced in different combinations of colours and compositions, it can be customised in size and detail.
