    "AF153" carpet collection by Antonio Forteleoni.

    Pibiones technique is realized through the use of bars to which a large wool weft is wrapped around. This passage creates a very compact curl, reminiscent of a small grape, which in the dialect of Sardinia is called “Pibione”.

    The result is a very heavy fabric, 5 to 10 mm thick depending on the size of weft and irons, characterized by a dotted texture.


    All of our carpets are handmade to order

    Antonio Forteleoni was born in Sardinia in 1987 and graduated in Interior Design at IED Milan in June 2010 and subsequently deepened his knowledge in product design at the prestigious Central Saint Martins school in London.

    He began his career as a designer in a solo exhibition at “Abitare il Tempo” in Verona in 2012, in which he was selected, among young designers, by Giulio Cappellini.

    His aesthetics soon approached the world of fine arts where he worked on the concept of materiality of the surfaces and on the reinterpretation of traditional elements in a contemporary key. His works have been displayed in important museums in Rome, Milan, Paris and NewYork.
