We wanted to make aware people of the carpets' world, in order to revalue and appreciate this object that gathers in itself expressions, practices and habits belonging to distant and ancient populations, but we wanted to do this through a beatiful game indeed!...
So we have created a little framework, give at disposal strands and needles with rainbow's seven colours and we asked each person to do some knots with a choosen colour in any point of our little carpet. We wanted people to know the know and its complexity and to feel themself as an artist, choosing firstly among 7 colours the strand they wanted and the place for the knot, then making them leave a little signature on this carpet.
Now..as we all know every colour spreads out a singular energy, different sensations and feelings from person to person, so our 7 coloured strands unfortunatly weren't enought because every single person choosed a different colour strand from the other ones...but, luckily, our studio doesn't run out for colours! So a little multicolour carpets was born, with amazing and brilliant colours.
We just didn't teach how to make knots, we had so much fun to see lots of people trying to learn something new. Then, it's possible for every child to feel a bit adult by learning the art of knotting, so complex and difficult, and for every adult the chance of feeling like a child, letting them be helped, smiling about their mistakes and trying again with curiosity, also remembering them that they are the true artists of this fantastic and original little carpet. This is our friendship carpet that, still today, keeps in joining together people from different countries.
