Born in a family of beekeepers, Marlène’s passion for insects is reflected in the design of her rug, made in collaboration with cc-tapis. Swarm is a hand-knotted rug celebrating the importance of insects: based on Marlène Huissoud intricate drawings, Swarm interprets the constant movement of insects.

The rug is completely hand-knotted by Tibetan artisans, who have meticulously knotted up to 152.000 individual knots per square meter and uses traditional eco-friendly production techniques.

No dyes, chemicals or acids were ever used during production and only Himalayan wool was used, a rich material with a wide variety of natural tones. Marlène Huissoud’s concern for the environment is expressed in her choice of materials and manufacturing techniques. Through her project she intends to celebrate the importance of insects as their presence in the world is declining: in the past decade alone 40% of insect species in the world have gone extinct.
