“Almost without exception, blue refers to the domain of abstraction and immateriality.” Wassily Kandinsky
Kandinsky painted Sky Blue in 1940 and it is currently at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
Writer and art critic Michel Conil Lacoste described this artwork as follows: “The implementation is […] so clear that there can be no incidental feature: a combination of precision and imagination!”
We have the privilege to weave Kandinsky‘s Sky Blue as a Tibetan handknotted custom rug for your home.
With 23 custom-dyed blues and pastel colours, woven in over one million handmade knots, this rug turns every room into a floating dream-like paradise.
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, depending on the desired size.
• Technique: Tibetan handknotted 150 kpsi.
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.
• Size: 180 x 240 cm (5.9 x 7.9 ft) or 225 x 300 cm (7.4 x 9.8 ft) or contact us tp request your custom size.
