Gandia Blasco Red Hand Tufted Surf Race Rug
The rugs of GAN's Surf series have a very original shape that offers many different possibilities. Designed by Alejandra Gandía-Blasco, their elliptical format is inspired by that of surfboards. This is the Red Indico Surf Race model, with a pattern made with 100% virgin wool in reddish tones using the hand-tufted technique.
It is ideal as a rug and even to use it as a wall hanging. Placed along the sofa, it is a great option if you do not have much space. Or, it can be placed in the bedroom, by the sides or at the foot of the bed. This model is also available in another version of gray and green 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.
