Mpando Carpet.

Design: Helmut Scheufele.

The Hausa say: “When the music changes, so does the dance.” This design takes its name from the Swahili word for culture: Mpando. Intense and expressive, a green and an orange stripe stand out against a variety of nuances. 

Low-pile carpet made from 55% wool, 25% nettle and 20% silk.
