The textile cooperative Su Marmuri was founded in 1971 in Ulassai, with the clear intent of preserving the local ancient textile tradition. Today, this is Sardinia‘s oldest company, staffed solely by women. All their products are one of a kind pieces or limited series, entirely handmade on horizontal looms implementing the typical “a pibiones” technique. This is a typical Sardinian weaving method, used to create stitch relief decorations. Choosing only natural materials, such as local sheep wool, linen, cotton and silk, the lab produces carpets and tapestries, curtains, tablecloths, pillowcases and many more textile home décor complements. Su Marmuri crafts both traditional decorations and contemporary experimental patterns, while also collaborating with important artists such as Maria Lai, with whom the cooperative has consistently worked since 1981.
