my name is Carolina Melis, I’m a designer and I’d like to introduce you to my latest project called Galinanova.
For the past couple of years I’ve been collaborating with the artisans from Sardinia, in particular with the weavers from the two villages of Ulassai and Nule.
Sardinia has a very strong tradition of weaving using both the vertical and horizontal loom. All the wool is local – from Sardinia – and some of the colours naturally dyed.
In this site you can see some of the pieces I’ve created, which are currently on sale on requests.
I should also mention there is an exhibition sponsored by the Sardinian Region at the Italian Cultural Institute in London on 39 Belgrave Square.
