Hand embroidered Cushion.
Made with thick wool yarns in an innovative reinterpretation of the petit point technique. Its designer, Charlotte Lancelot, is able to achieve tile-like patterns by using four different stitch lengths. The result is a rug with four distinct designs, as if it were recreating the mismatched floors that can often be found in old houses.
SILAI means "stitch" in the Indian language and represents a reinterpretation of petit point embroidery.
Inspired by the work of craftsmen Charlotte Lancelot has created a contemporary collection which aims to rediscover and celebrates the beauty of hand embroidered techniques.
Squares, triangles, rhombuses, hexagons, octagons and crosses are all embroidered by hand using only dark blue, white, gray and yellow threads. The Silaï collection reinterprets the basic foundations of petit point embroidery through a very specific review of this technique, applied both to the types of stitches and to the scale and thickness of the threads.
The attractive patterns of the rugs, poufs and cushions that make up the series are based on just four stitch variations, hand-embroidered by Indian artisans with 100% virgin wool yarns on a PVC grid. The wooden auxiliary tables in this collection add functionality and make it possible to configure the Silaï space in the most versatile way.
