Garfagnina wool, merino wool and cotton

It is a composition of textile structures made with honeycomb weaving woven on hand looms of 16 and 24 healds, which allowed the development of a macro dimension of its structure.

It represents the most eloquent expression of what the knowledge of “full and empty” can express, the foundation of textile design.

Honeycomb weave is traditionally used for linens and tea towels. Made with very thin or low quality yarns, here it is distorted to enhance its incredible three-dimensionality.

To create the weaves I chose local Tuscan wool, merino wool and cotton which, with their consistency, made the weave “plastic” and enhanced the third dimension of the fabric. The macro fabrics are installed inside ash, oak and venghè wooden cubes made by a craftsman from Pisa.
