Loro Piano Hosts Public Art Installation at Dubai Opera Garden | The Luxe Diary

From Thursday November 8th to Saturday November 10th, this multi-sensorial installation will invite visitors to discover the secrets of the world’s finest merino wool, one of Loro Piana’s most exclusive treasures: The Gift of Kings®. For this exclusive public event, Loro Piana is honoured to partner with Tashkeel, which since 2008 has nurtured excellence in contemporary art and design and supported the careers of local practitioners.

Proud to share the same passion for innovation, creativity and craftsmanship, Loro Piana has chosen to celebrate local culture by collaborating with internationally renowned artist eL Seed. His striking works mingle traditional Arabic calligraphy with contemporary street art, and this site-specific piece was inspired by an ancient poem written by King Alfonso X, the enlightened, cosmopolitan ruler of thirteenth century Spain who played a pivotal role in the history of merino wool: The Gift of Kings®, both then and now.

The Gift of Kings® wool is the outcome of a tireless quest for excellence, and Loro Piana’s enduring passion for the most exquisite natural fibres. Working closely with leading wool growers in Australia and New Zealand for many years, Loro Piana encourages and incentivises the production of this ever finer fibre.

To celebrate the immense effort that goes into producing this unique wool, each year Loro Piana rewards the finest fibre with the Record Bale Award, and occasionally, through hard work and perseverance, this fibre breaks all known world records for wool fineness, becoming the World Record Bale.

Visitors to the installation will have the opportunity to appreciate this one-of-a-kind treasure and experience the natural wonders of the world’s most beautiful wool.
