Okra Runner Crafted in Senegal, Tailored in Italy
The philosophy of Alexandrine is what you get when the culture of precious African fabrics marries Italian style.
It?s not just a simple home decor. Alexandrine also communicates culture, because every item has a story to tell.
The history of the precious African fabrics (which sometimes becomes true art) rich in meaning and tradition is still made with hand loom by skilled weavers who pass their skills from one generation on to the future generations.
These traditional secrets met with Italian culture and craftsmanship, and there was an instant desire to combine this precious material with the style made in Italy, made of creativity and attention to detail. . .
This runner is knotted in workshops in Italy, while the fabric itself was made by weaving crafts to the frame in Senegal. It is generally very light with a gray / beige coloured retro pattern. High knot density and high-class material made in Africa gives it a unique elegant and artsy look. Inspired by the African artistic spirit, while the Italian hands made its final shape gave this piece a collectors item status. ? Size: 200×33 cm
