Description

The textile industry generates an enormous amount of contamination and waste, which are getting more visible and problematic in the modern world. That issue was an inspiration for Tartaruga Studio to work on a WASTEWORLD project. It’s a collection of hand woven kilims made in over 90% of woolen yarns recycled from mass carpet production. These yarns come in the full spectre of colors, but can’t be reused in the industry anymore, due to the low beam mass. Nevertheless, they are still an excellent material with the ultimate properties to use in weaving craft.

Kilim itself is a kind of textile which is fully usable, reversable, very dense, and it improves the acoustics of any interior. It can be used as a wall decoration, but also as a space divider or a floor rug. Kilims are always hand made because there’s no technology yet to replace a human’s hands work in the kilim technique.

Due to the limited availability of yarns, every product from the WASTEWORLD collection is unique and made only in one copy. All the kilims are signed; bear a serial number and names of designer and maker. 2% of income is intended to charity.

This set of kilims was designed as a composition, which could work as three different carpets, but if you put all of them together they look like one huge kilim.

About the designer


Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
