Su Trobasciu, an artisan collective established in 1978, is made up exclusively of women and continues the very long tradition of weaving in Mogoro village. Working with the loom was a solely feminine occupation, which supplemented family incomes for centuries. Carpets, blankets, chest-covers, saddlebags, and tapestries make up the staple production. With the traditional manual looms, different techniques were developed: 'a bagas' for the tapestries, which give life to chromatic symphonies with precious wefts, and 'pibiones' for the carpets.

Su Trobasciu boasts numerous collaborations with artists and designers, such as Carolina Melis, Mara Damiani and Violetta Scanu. The chosen materials are all natural fibres (Sardinian wool, cotton, linen, silk) except for the gilt and silvery yarns which embellish the wonderful tapestries depicting traditional patterns such as the unicorns, horses and flowers.
