“Art should be like a holiday: something to give a man the opportunity to see things differently and to change his point of view.” Paul Klee
Paul Klee painted House on the Water (original title in German: Haus am Wasser) in 1930.

Over half a million knots are woven by hand for the smaller rug size.
For environmental reasons and to provide our full bespoke service, our rugs are always made to order.
Delivery time for this rug is approx. 12 weeks.
• Technique: Tibetan handknotted in 80 or 100 knots per square inch. Choose 80 kpsi for a coarser, more textured rug, and 100 kpsi for a finer rug.
In the Tibetan handknotted technique we follow the centuries-old handcraft tradition. We first set a vertical wooden loom, on which we stretch cotton warp threads from the bottom to the top in a continuous loop. We then make the knots around two warp threads and a metal rod. The knot count (80, 100 or 150 kpsi -knots per square inch-) states how many individual knots are made in one square inch. A higher knot count allows for more detail in the design while also resulting in a finer rug texture and a longer-lasting rug, as the knots are tighter and denser. Tibetan rugs are extremely high-quality and an wonderful example of pure handcraft.
• Material: New Zealand wool.
Pure New Zealand wool is a high-quality, resilient material that offers the brightest colour absorption and creates wonderfully soft rugs.
