Patchwork Restyled by Golran
Patchwork carpets, which are again unique pieces, are all handmade by cutting and artfully sewing together vintage carpets that are subsequently dyed with monochromatic vegetable pigments, giving an array of colours ranging from bright shades to pale, natural ones. The patchwork technique allows carpets of any size to be created and assembled to achieve the desired visual effect. Indeed, in patchwork the overall composition is pieced together from details, thus enhancing the charm of the decorations and textures of Oriental carpets. All the sewing is done by hand using precious yarns, according to the ancient art of embroidery.
With this collection Golran combines its know-how and experience accrued over the years with creativity and experimentation, thus anticipating a tendency and channelling it into a new trend.
Carpet Reloaded uses new cutting-edge techniques to rework and reinterpret Oriental carpets from the first and second halves of the twentieth century. The past, with its materials and traditional weaving techniques, is projected into the present via decolorizing processes and subsequent monochromatic dyeing stages that give the carpets a new identity. The resulting products are original, entirely handmade and highly precious; they are similar in terms of technique and mood, but each is absolutely unique.
