An ancient craft for women

  • • Marcella learned from her father and uncles
  • • The town of Samugheo is world-famous for its weaving
  • • Wool, cotton and linen are the most used fabrics

Tessile Medusa studio, founded in the 1960s in Samugheo and taken over by Marcella Sanna in 2004, is one of most well-known weaving ateliers in Sardinia. It is known for its carpets, delicate curtains, precious tablecloths and fabrics that are not only manufactured for private households but also for hotel industry. The atelier boasts important hotels on the Costa Smeralda among its customers. Over time, the company’s small manual looms have been followed by larger semi-mechanical looms. Currently, alongside traditional production, the atelier carries out an innovative research of decorative designs, colours and images.

The decoration of this original cotton rug, made with a semi-full pibiones artisan technique, is a contemporary reinterpretation of the black and white chequered geometric pattern found on traditional saddlebags. Characterised by its dual practical and aesthetic value, it is designed as a large bedside rug and is part of an exclusive ensemble for the bedroom proposed by Tessile Medusa.
