S'Iscaccu di Anna Deriu

S’Iscaccu di Anna Deriu

In 1984 I entered the “Gruppo Tessitrici di Bolotana” (Bolotana’s weavers group), developing immediately a passion for weaving arts. Thanks to some more experienced weavers, I learnt and developed all the secrets behind weaving work and natural dyeing. In 1985 I had already taken part in many exhibitions, in Sardinia, in Italy and abroad, as the Maison Objet in Paris, the Macef in Milan and other Fairs and Biennals in Sardinia.

Over the years, I have worked for many vocational schools as a teacher and with many designers, to teach and promote all those techniques I learnt. I work using horizontal looms and traditional techniques: a pettenedda, a rànu, a mustra, realising valuable crafts.

Without leaving tradition aside, I am always willing to undertake new challenges, exploiting ancient knowledges to realise new crafts and modern furniture accessories.
