HAND CRAFTED RUGS, 2018. PHOTOS BY MARIO CIAMPI
Ceccotti Collezioni has always been a careful preserver of stories. Stories of people, centuries old traditions, manual skills, and quality crafts.
There’s a place, in one of the remotest and most impassable regions in the world, that silk used to pass through, in its journey from the East to the West: Nepal. There, rug making is an art as old as the populations who live there and it has achieved unequalled excellence.
Superior materials, colours, a masterly handknotting technique passed down the generations and, last but not least, the effect of the unique Nature of these places – the sun, the air, the altitude – help create elegant, unique pieces.
Fields stands out for its elegant, fine pattern, where it is the colour, shine and feel of silk that take centre stage. There is, behind the delicate appearance of the pattern, an intricate cutting technique, which adds bulk and a three-dimensional feel to the surface. It takes inspiration from light shimmering on the huge expanses of ploughed fields, which, seen from above, produce a multitude of chiaroscuro streaks, like strokes of an invisible brush.
