Designed by artist and architect Paulina Herrera, Fessura features a striking design reminiscent of a large crack running through a boulder. This rug is part of the Pietra collection,  inspired by the designer’s sketches and watercolours of geological textures found along the Sardinian shoreline formed naturally by age and erosion.

Mariantonia Urru established her workroom in Sardinia, Italy, in 1981, driven to produce textiles using long-established techniques – and to revive some that were nearly forgotten. With an enduring dedication to exploring different methods of construction, Mariantonia’s expertise in weaving and manufacturing leads to designs that reflect local heritage in a contemporary style. The results of Mariantonia’s mission are seen in our selection of her rugs and cushions, comprising a modern colour palette and reinvigorated traditional motifs.


Pure new Sardinian wool and silk.
