The Desert in Bloom is a phenomenon that happens around every 4 years in Atacama, the driest desert of the world, in the North of Chile. The infertile earth is embroidered with a veil of flowers resembling a colorful rug over the fields. As our National Anthem states, “And your countryside embroidered with flowers” is a collection of rugs inspired in the beauty of the desert in bloom.  Far from a literal interpretation, this project is an abstraction of the landscape and its tranquil aesthetical appeal in terms of materiality, texture and depth of tone.
