“Art is linked to what hasn’t been done yet, to what has not been created yet. It is something outside of you, in the future, something to search for.” Eduardo Chillida

The artwork of Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) represents one of the greatest artistic accomplishments of the late 20th century.

To pay homage to the artist, the Chillida collection was created based on a chronological selection of his work: Figura Humana – 1948, Dibujo Tinta – 1957, and Collage – 1966, pieces that reflect the gestation process of his renown sculpture: Peine del Viento located in San Sebastián. The collection also includes one depiction of his famous hands: Mano from the ‘90s, and Gravitación from 1994.

Chillida’s artistic nuances have been faithfully translated into rugs, all handmade using various techniques and fibres, such as wool, silk, and hand-spun mohair, to create different textures, showcasing the essence of his work.

100% New Zealand wool

Hand knotted

Manual weaving produced on a vertical loom in which the strands are tightly fastened to the warp by knots.
The shape and thickness of the knot differentiate the variety of hand-knotted rugs and the finish will result in a 'Cut Pile', 'Loop Pile' or a braid-style in the case of Sumak rugs.

The number of knots will directly affect the density, definition of the pattern, durability and value of the rug.

Persian knot
This is a hand-knotting technique, in which half the knot is wound around the warp, while the other half is left loose. The result is an asymmetric knot that can lead to high densities and truly detailed motifs.

Turkish knot
This is also a hand-knotting technique, but unlike the Persian knot, consisting in tightly symmetrical knots that achieve consistent pile and is used for thick rugs.

Indo Nepal knot
To create this type of knot, the craftsman winds the fiber around a rod, working more quickly. The fiber is subsequently cut and the cut pile or loop pile is obtained.

Sumak
A technique in which the strands are fastened to the warp, which makes the rug seem to be constructed of braids. In this manner, a flat structure with surface relief is obtained.
