“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” Wassily Kandinsky
Wassily Kandinsky painted Surfaces Meeting in 1934, when he had just moved to Paris. This is the year that starts the last transformation of his painting system. He works with much softer and subtler colour shades and with biomorphic shapes.
We translate this artwork as a fine handknotted rug in 150 Tibetan knots per square inch. More than 400000 knots are handwoven for the smallest size rug.
This rug, with its greys and soft purples, elevates your interior design to a whole new level of calm and refined elegance.
For environmental reasons and to provide our full bespoke service, our rugs are always made to order.
Delivery time for this rug is between 10 and 12 weeks, depending on the desired size and technique.
• 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: 150 x 100 cm (4.9 x 3.3 ft) or 220 x 150 cm (7.2 x 4.9 ft) or contact us to request your bespoke size.
