Silai celebrates the beauty of the age-old art of handmade embroidery where the time, care and patience needed to make something is reflected. It is a “savoir-faire” that is being lost, because we have less and less time, we use objects that we consume quickly and can be replaced easily. Woven over a plastic grid, or a “framework”, petit point is simple rapid diagonal stitching. The design includes four types of distinct stitching that combine in different ways create a beautiful harmony of colors and textures. The result: very lightweight carpets comfortable and with a unique design.
