|The LISIO Foundation was engaged in two important projects in 2007
The first consisted of the reproduction of a plain crimson cut velvet found to be the original upholstery textile in a set of so-called “Juvarrian” divans conserved at Palazzo Madama in Turin.
The work involved study of a sample of the original velvet, reconstruction of the technique and materials used; the result was an exact reproduction of the XVIII century velvet.
The second project involved the creation of an Obi with a previously unused technique: an uncut gold velvet.
The many difficulties encountered while setting up the loom and in the weaving process were amply offset by the excellent results achieved and the creation of a wholly original textile.
