Gandia Blasco Gray Hand Tufted Surf Race Rug
GAN's Surf rugs are characterized by a completely atypical format that offers a lot of possibilities. Designed by Alejandra Gandía-Blasco, their elliptical shape is inspired by that of surfboards. This is the Blue Indico Surf Race model, with a pattern in gray and green tones made using the hand-tufted technique and 100% virgin wool.
It is a piece that can be placed along a sofa, a great option if you do not have much space. They can also be used in the bedroom, as bedside rugs or at the foot of the bed. It is ideal as a rug and even to hang it from the wall as if it were a tapestry. This model is also available in another version of reddish tones.
SURF, A RUG FROM GAN'S HAND TUFTED COLLECTION
Hand-tufting is a manual rug-making method in which a special handheld tool shoots and cuts a portion of wool following a pattern over a stretched cotton fabric. This technique offers great freedom in terms of designs, thicknesses, finishes and colors. With it, GAN makes possible the impossible.
ALEJANDRA GANDÍA-BLASCO, DESIGNER OF THE SURF SERIES
Alejandra Gandía-Blasco is the creative and communications deputy director at GANDIABLASCO. In addition, she is an interdisciplinary artist who likes to combine visual and technical artistic expressions with references from the fashion or artisanal worlds. She studied Fine Arts at the UPV in Valencia, later completing her training in Design and Communication at Central Saint Martins in London. For all these reasons, she occasionally designs specific collections for GAN. She is part of the third generation at the head of the company, which she joined in 2012. She conceives the different typologies and means of expression of design and art as a whole, not as a cluster of separate disciplines, hence her tendency to mix plastic arts, the design of everyday objects and communication.
