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


Tartaruga Studio

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
