GRADIENT is a jacquard woven rug made from Merino wool, Mohair, linen, and cotton.
By felting and manipulating the fabric after weaving, the materials change. They start to wrinkle, shrink, move, and distort, revealing their most tactile characteristics. Through this process, different textures and organic shapes are created, looking and feeling luxuriously tactile. As a result, the woven rug gets a three-dimensional character and the graphical design transforms into a variety of tangible textures.
This rug has no real front or backside, since they are both equally valuable. Each side expresses a different feel, a touch to treasure.
This piece is made in collaboration with TextielLab Tilburg.
