Gruppo di Installazione textiles at GARDE

Gruppo di Installazione presents a home textile collection of lambswool blankets and cushions. Home textiles, handmade.. The collections of Gruppo di Installazione are generated by a research in traditional and folk craft materials with modern and innovative techniques. Materials used today are the same materials used for trousseau and daily wardrobe since the beginning of the last century and are still produced in centuries-old Italian factories. Gruppo di Installazione creates a domestic ambience by reassuring images of our collective memory. Recovering our history is the essential ground to search for the new; objects from the past towards the future.

The stripes decoration, which recalls traditional blankets, is made by a modern technique of needle-punch-embroidery, that is a mechanical process of fushion of textile fibers. $ 650.00 at GARDE DSC_0065 The Plaid Fiore Agigliato blanket has been made with a double-face virgin wool fabric. The flower decoration has been created by a modern needle-punch-embroidery technique. $ 1.075.00 at GARDE DSC_0068 The Plaid Timbro blanket is part of a project dedicated to the black sheep. The stripes decoration, which recalls traditional blankets is made with Italian black sheep wool using a modern technique of needle-punch-embroidery. Wool from black sheep for a long time was depressed by the market. For Gruppo di Installazione, the black sheep wool is not only beautiful, but full of symbolic meanings. $ 1,075.00 at GARDE Screen Shot 2012-12-28 at 5.54.31 PM DSC_0070 The Coperta Italiana blanket is Gruppo di Installazione's manifesto.
