What Is A Patchwork?

The patchwork It is very fashionable if we talk about design. This textile technique has not been born recently, although its presence and commitment to decoration issues has already increased for several decades. What does it consist of? Through the union of pieces of cloth sewn together, carpets, blankets, tablecloths and clothes are obtained, among other types of products.

It is an expression of creativity and color, but also of precision when it comes to cutting, tracing and assembling fabrics. You get unique carpets with fully customized designs. Zigler's patchworks are the result of this process of craftsmanship with materials such as hemp, cotton or wool.

It is an ancient technique that the hippie movement and culture rescued in the 60s. But as everything always comes back, it is now part of a decorative style booming for its great possibilities and versatility. Why? We will talk more about the types of patchwork, although we can already tell you that the use of natural materials gives a lot of play for the creation of environments with this type of rugs.
