In a palette of six colours typical of Nepalese yarns, this high-quality kilim rug has been hand woven from special Tibetan wool from Argali - a wild sheep breed that resides in the Himalayan mountains. The yarns themselves have been handspun by local weavers, and their naturally faded colours and irregular character lend each rug a truly individual appeal. Each rug incorporates several design details, including a hand-embroidered area with silk yarn - a reference to an old tradition of repairing the rugs. The fringes are braided, a practice that also refers to an old custom in Nepal - this for its decorative appeal. ‘This is a contemporary take on the kilim rug,’ says Hella Jongerius of her inspiration. ‘It retains the high quality of traditional construction and includes crispy, fresh details.’ Colourful silk yarns lend the rug a light and modern character.
