The textile studio Prof. Cannas is located in the heart of the Gallura region, surrounded by the granitic mountains of Aggius. This atelier keeps the local textile tradition unaltered and alive, and is the result of an all-female line of experience: the studio was founded in 1997 as a co-operative and then incorporated in 2005 by the 10 founding partners. This small textile company was also the head of I.S.O.L.A.’s Experimental Center1 until the day of its closure, later on continuing to work inside the same beautiful historical building. Here, skilled artisans weave carpets in the old-fashion way, using horizontal looms and only locally sourced cotton or wool, and emphasizing the use of typical decorations such as geometric patterns or the local “a date” style.
