Conosci meglio l’artigiano

L’Isola del Ricamo di Paola Garau

Embroidery and Sewing arts have been part of my family tradition for generations, however I have been spending much time researching ancient works, techniques, materials and designs to widen my knowledge and improve my products. Thanks to my handiwork as well as to my many experiences, I transformed my passion into my work.

In my studio I create not only objects with new patterns, but also exact reproductions of traditional works, inspired by old designs and crafts, without distorting tradition. We use natural fabrics and yarns as linen, cotton and silk and light ones as organza and tulle, only made in Italy.

We use all classic stitches, unthreading and counted-thread embroidering: punto antico (Italian drawn-thread technique), pulled thread work. Concerning lace work, we use macramé and tatting, needlepoint and bobbin lace as well as goldwork, used to realise Sardinian traditional costumes and sacred art products.
