“Art is linked to what hasn’t been done yet, to what has not been created yet. It is something outside of you, in the future, something to search for.” Eduardo Chillida
The artwork of Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) represents one of the greatest artistic accomplishments of the late 20th century.
To pay homage to the artist, the Chillida collection was created based on a chronological selection of his work: Figura Humana – 1948, Dibujo Tinta – 1957, and Collage – 1966, pieces that reflect the gestation process of his renown sculpture: Peine del Viento located in San Sebastián. The collection also includes one depiction of his famous hands: Mano from the ‘90s, and Gravitación from 1994.
Chillida’s artistic nuances have been faithfully translated into rugs, all handmade using various techniques and fibres, such as wool, silk, and hand-spun mohair, to create different textures, showcasing the essence of his work.
Manual weaving produced on a vertical loom in which the strands are tightly fastened to the warp by knots.
The shape and thickness of the knot differentiate the variety of hand-knotted rugs and the finish will result in a 'Cut Pile', 'Loop Pile' or a braid-style in the case of Sumak rugs.
The number of knots will directly affect the density, definition of the pattern, durability and value of the rug.
