Bamboo Design. Emanuela Garbin and Michela Boglietti for Carpet Edition. 26.10.2020
After the Bamboo Shaded collection, Carpet Edition has chosen to collaborate with Emanuela Garbin and Michela Boglietti to create Bamboo Design, a line of carpets worked and carved so finely as to create magnificent three-dimensional designs.
Like Bamboo Shaded, Bamboo Design carpets belong to the company’s Hand Made catalog and are made of bamboo and cotton. Their long process of processing is articulated in a series of complex manual steps: after preparing the wire through carding, spinning and dyeing, this is tied to the frame to create a polychrome carpet, rich in shades tone-on-tone; only later the craftsmen intervene with a careful and precise carving work, thanks to which it is possible to see sketched on the surface various designs inspired by the natural world.
Emanuela Garbin and Michela Boglietti, in fact, have chosen to tell through this collection some ‘fragments of travel’, ‘instants of breathtaking views’. Not surprisingly, each version of the line Bamboo Design recalls a pristine landscape: Ground, with its warm colors and irregular lines, reminiscent of the wheat fields or the arid expanses of earth inflamed by the sun; Iceberg, between geometric designs and gray shades, is inspired by the silence of the glaciers; Jungle, in which the three-dimensional texture reproduces the veins of the leaves, transports in an unusual and green vegetation; Seashell, with its delicate semicircular carvings, evokes long beaches beaten by the waves.
Thanks to the collaboration with Emanuela Garbin and Michela Boglietti, Carpet Edition has been able to combine the value of artisanal production with the beauty of design, offering an extremely elegant, precious and eco-sustainable carpet collection. The choice of natural materials, in fact, in addition to having a low environmental impact and always ensure strength, versatility and comfort, fully respects the ancient tradition while meeting the needs of contemporary style.
Only in this way it is possible to bring even in the most modern homes the magic of a ‘know how to do’ lost in the mists of time, put at the service of modern design.
