These linen tea towels are the result of a journey through a 40s archive discovered in an old weaver up in the Dolomites mountains, where natural and vernacular elements have been reinterpreted in these geometries.
A geometric is an abstract of non representational motifs, a shape that is not a picture of something of the real world. It is a vision of the mind which reduces objects to simple shapes: polygons, triangles, circles, lines. Suited perfectly to the weaving based on a system of interlacing warp and weft threads, the geometric designs were the first patterns used to embellish fabrics since the dawn of time.
