“Maddalena’s rugs, immediately recognizable for the delicate contrast of textures and the natural and well balanced colors, show that it is possible to distill long forgotten Mexican craft techniques into very contemporary and minimalist pieces.”
-Enrico Bonetti, Bonetti/Kozerski Architects D.P.
EACH PIECE MADDA STUDIO PRODUCES IS UNIQUE IN COLOR, HAND AND TEXTURE. OUR TEXTILES ARE USED TO CREATE RUGS, PILLOWS, THROWS AND OTHER INTERIOR ACCESSORIES.
All the textiles we produce are carefully crafted to yield one-of-a-kind, timeless pieces. Each rug is created from the wool of the Chiapa sheep, a breed that has evolved over 500 years in the highlands of Chiapas in southern Mexico. The wool is hand-spun by Mayan women on pre-Hispanic drop spindles and is untreated, allowing for deep absorption and saturation of color. This hand-spun wool produces an irregularity to the yarn which gives each rug a unique texture. Because we use natural dyes derived from plants, bark, flowers and insects, our textiles possess a vibrancy of color and a distinctive palette. Master weavers weave the rugs in Chiapas and Oaxaca on pedal looms.
