Marmo Pettinato - Gabbehs Abstract & Plain Collection
Venetian marbled paper (carta marmorizzata) is the inspiration behind this new collection to be launched at M&O in September 2018 with designs that 'mimic' the natural veining in stone or marble, hence the name. The Marmo Pettinato design in papers is created by dragging a rake-like tool through the pigments, creating a glorious variegated effect. Achieving this effect is complex and time-consuming in hand-knotted carpets. The result is thoroughly modern and unique and can vary from carpet to carpet.
