Avino, is a collection of rugs designed by Cristina Celestino for cc-tapis, as a natural continuation of the bespoke rugs designed for the Palazzo Avino.
In 2020 Cristina Celestino reimagined and redesigned the rooms and suites for the iconic hotel which included custom textile projects, taking their cue from the wonders of the Italian gardens of Ravello, and the odyssey of forgotten legends of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
From this imagery, she designed a collection of custom rugs created by cc-tapis PROJECT, the contract sector of cc-tapis. Each rug was produced with special custom sizes, the designs being adapted to the scale and specification of each room or suite.
In 2021 Cristina Celestino presents 5 new designs in standard sizes, adapted and developed with cc-tapis to be included in their permanent collection.
A collection which is produced by hand in Nepal using linen, wool and pure silk. The rugs feature monochromatic geometries and patterns, oversized floral designs from indigenous Mediterranean flora such as pomegranate fruit, citrus trees and asphodel flowers. The fresh designs draw inspiration from the colours and natural elements of the Amalfi Coast.
