Tarantella

This collection is entirely based on Italian peasant design of the 18th & 19th Century. Taken from daily objects such as tablecloths, bedspreads and clothing or from milking stools and ox yokes. A collection built on the rhythm of repeating patterns it reflects ordinary life rather than the highfalutin palazzos, dukes, popes and doges. There are remarkable similarities in some of these designs with South & Central American textile design of the same period and also with Navajo Indian – this is most probably caused by the constraints of the looms rather than any cultural crossover.
