Intricately Woven Nuragic Satellitaria Tapestry by Roberto Sironi in Cream

Estimated Production Time4-5 weeks

About

Building on his obsession with ancient cultures and the way in which prehistoric objects shaped them, Roberto Sironi has designed two tapestries, Nuragic White and Nuragic Black, that superimpose various aerial views of migration and architectures of native Sardinian tribes. The name Nuragic comes from the nuraghe, massive stone structures found all over the island. The tapestries overlap bird’s-eye views of these structures in various scales, as well as proposing an interpretation of trade routes through the mountainous terrains. The mixture of techniques (tall pibiones, short pibiones, simil-litzos) and materials (Sardinian wool, cotton, linen and silk) complements the juxtaposition of the various worlds. The tapestries are hand-tufted, with a hand knotted fringe, and finished with hints of hand-embroidered phrases from the mysterious Nuragic language. The collection is produced by Mariantonia Urru from the town of Samugheo. The Urru family has dedicated themselves to recreating the entire chain of production - from producing their own yarns and warps to creating new techniques based on original weaving to hand finishing each carpet. Each strand of yarn used for these tapestries was created specifically for the project.

About The Maker

Pretziada

Pretziada

View Profile
Pretziada is an interdisciplinary project combining the worlds of journalism, design, craftsmanship and tourism. Our mission might seem contradictory - we want to bring the world to Sardinia in order to preserve all of the particularities of this Mediterranean island. But we truly believe that, working with full respect for the unique local heritage and traditions we can bring change, modernity and innovation to Sardinia without losing an ounce of authenticity. We live full-time on the island, traveling through small mountain towns and coastal villages, learning about the culture and meeting artisans. Ivano, born and raised in Milan, comes from the world of fashion and contemporary art. Kyre, a native Californian, spent years as a Set Designer in New York. In 2015, we moved to a small, rural corner of southwestern Sardinia to begin Pretziada. We've since been honored to win The Design Prize for Best Design Newcomers and to be included in the Beazley Designs of the Year show at the London Design Museum. Our small, curated collection is composed of a combination of classic Sardinian art-crafts as well as exclusive collaborations between Sardinian artisans and international creatives. Each item is backed up by months of research and confrontation, followed by true interaction among the artists, artisans, designers and us. The collection exudes sardità (the essence of Sardinia) with a contemporary, clean aesthetic.
