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.
Muse is a tribute to the Eastern arabesque, which recalls the geometric and visual impressions of ancient mosaics. The pattern looks as if it were made of tesserae, painstakingly matched together on an invisible silk ground. This is a labour of love that takes a lot of patience and experience and comes out of the manual skills of Nepal’s expert weavers, who intertwine every single pattern, thread after thread.
