Bold, squared layered pattern,in acid tones of mustard yellow toned down by complimentary greys, inspired by the texture of the traditional rag carpets. The hand drawn lines make the pattern softer, fluid, while square, closed layout creates a static impression.
The rag rug, often multicoloured, made of strips of odd fabrics woven in place with threads, is a long-time presence in grandma’s house and a recent addition to the modern interior. The basic concepts that define this object are reuse, recycling and collage.
The richness of the pattern is due to layering of various scraps of different colours. The layering gesture and the collage practice were reinterpreted and the rag rug design principles were translated into bold and colourful patterns, creating the Layers and threads collection.
