This tapestry-like art piece PALLADIO is handcrafted using mohair threads on a cotton warp base on a tapestry loom. Signe used her signature looping technique, which consists of ongoing rows of loops with six thin mohair threads, woven together with wool in a classic rug construction. The thin yarns allowed the artisan to make a subtle colour gradient, inspired by the interior of the Basilica of San Giorgio and the light and water around Venice. The textile artwork is hung on an ash wood bar.
