LEGENDS OF CARPETS.
Inspired by the landscapes and colors of Africa, and hand-knotted in certified Nepalese workshops, the collection “Legends of Carpets” translates abstract painting into timeless, woven works of art. Wool from the Tibetan highlands, fine Chinese silk and nettle yarn all possess exceptional qualities which consequently characterize every product. In Nepal, our certified partner workshops have often been in the hands of the same family for generations. There, carpets are hand-crafted using traditional Tibetan knotting methods under sustainable and socially responsible conditions. Due to the heterogeneous nature of fibers and threads, to their diverse colors and hues, and to the personal interpretation of craftsmen, every rug ends up being a unique masterpiece. These objects are living proof that true values are wisely handed down from generation to generation.
Chumwi - Salt
Earth's white gold, salt is elixir. It is one of the most precious things the sea bestows upon us. Standing next to the carpet Chumwi, one will be surreally transported to the endless, awe-inspiring expanse of a dry salt lake. Imagine walking on a grey/blue luminous desert.
