Plaids handmade in Italy, entirely composed by wool in jacquard weaving. "GANDINO plaids are handmade in Italy, Calabria, and produced by Lanificio Leo. The story of this artwork originates further north, in Torri Lana 1885 factory. Presented in 2018, it existed since the 70's. Firstly found and designed, it later became a friendship's symbol. During our research for the book “Torri Lana 1885. Archives and Future”, we came across an interesting sample: the Blue-White Oslo fabric, produced in the 70's for the production of optical bedcovers. We immediately put it aside, sure to include it in the publication. From that moment, we looked at it and analyzed it several times. We finally concluded: we wanted to redesign it and turn it into a contemporary product. The next step came spontaneously: we proposed to Emilio, owner of Lanificio Leo, to produce the new plaid. The two wool mills had met in 2016 for a project in which we had involved both. The GANDINO plaid is not the exact reproduction of the Blue-White Oslo fabric: the archival design has been deconstructed, scaled and remixed." (Carla Scorda _Studiocharlie).
