Oh, well. Autumn is here and I couldn’t be much happier. You probably think that I hit my head hard since London weather is very breezy and rainy. But, the only things that I truly love this season is the way how mother nature works her way, the hot cups of tea and the cozy warm clothes.
And talking about feeling comfy, artist Carolina Melis is warming her way into our lives with a new line of fine rugs, wallhangings, curtains and bedspreads. The sardinian born and London based Central St Martins graduate, Melis is the creative director of Mio Karo brand.
Inspired by traditional motifs from Sardinia, the collection is entirely designed with the typical pibiones handmade weaving technique. Using cotton,silk and wool sourced from the island, this particular type of stitched relief is created from numberless grains that gives the special design.
The collection was presented at the Italian Cultural Institute in London as part of an exhibition dedicated to Carolina, who is an internationally world known due to her list of clients such as Vogue, Chloe, Ikea, LeSportSac and Microsoft.
Wow! This funky geometric rugs will be great in my room. Well, still deciding which one. Any ideas?
