The Mediterranean island of Sardinia is known for its beautiful beaches, its pecorino cheese and, increasingly, for its unusual textile tradition. This has been influenced by a history of invaders and conquerors including the Phoenicians, the Ottoman Empire, and the Spanish. For centuries rugs and textiles have been produced using skills passed from mother to daughter.
The ‘pibiones’ hand-weaving technique creates motifs in raised bobbles to give a bas-relief effect. This is done by winding thread round a long needle held above the warp threads on the loom.
