Botanical Rugs

Botanical Rugs are hand-knotted rugs, depicting flora that have been foraged and pressed before being composed into intricate designs. The specimen come from the designers own herbarium, a library of pressed botanicals that have been collected over several years.
The botanical pattern are influenced Millefleurs tapestries of the early Renaissance. The gradient in the rugs’ background colours reference photographic techniques in particular the botanical photographs of the 19th Century botanist and photographer Anna Atkins. They emphasise the essential relationship between plant specimen and light.

The rugs are made in silk, wool and linen. The silk yarn evokes a play of light that makes the rugs optically in flux and ever changing depending on the point of view or when moving past. The collection is available in 4 colour ways Rose, Moss, Corn and Blue and in several standard sizes. Custom colours and sizes may be ordered on request. In extra special circumstances we can work with locally harvested plant species.
