Design House Stockholm Basket Rug
Sharp angles and soft transitions play the roles in a shadow play that is both illusion and reality. Lena Bergström once again finds inspiration in her beloved Norrland.
The rugs graphic pattern pays homage to old handicraft traditions such as birch bark baskets and rucksacks.
The unique handicraft and techniques of weaving and cutting creates a trompe l'œil of those traditions. It comes in four sizes but can be customized as a special order in other sizes.
Material: Handtufted carpet 100% wool, cotton backing. Other information: Vacumm clean regularly to remove particles in the wool. Spots can be removed using a clean cloth with lukewarm wate
