Prejudgement by Sílvia Matias / GUR

Prejudgment by Sílvia Matias / GUR

This GUR is inspired by the pre-association of things, that pre-define genders, stereotypes and another kind of associations. It’s about standards that we create in our society, that in this object are retracted on how we automatically attribute colours and forms to genders.
Exploring with an illustration of a visual shape, dots, and the “puxadinho” technique as elements to create the final outcome. Simple and direct. 
  • All rugs by GUR are handmade in Portugal
  • Held in a traditional handloom with raw rag
  • Embossing technique or colors overlaying
  • Finished with basic sewing

Material: 100% Cotton

Dimensions: 47" by 27.5" (120cm x 70cm)

The essence of GUR is making these typical Portuguese rugs more fun. They use the same techniques with carefully selected materials. The rugs are very authentic to what they have always been but now they involve a design factor working with artists and illustrators, translating their ideas into rugs.
