London Design Festival 2018

Back

As part of this September’s London Design Festival ‘Sustainability’ theme we will be showcasing the Sari Silk Collection at our Pimlico Road showroom.  This collection  made entirely from recycled saris. 

The recycling process of taking old saris and reapplying them to rugs makes this the most joyous and unexpected of constructions. Ten percent of the sari silk material used to create these vivid rugs is left undyed and as a result the original colours are shot through the design.  This makes very single rug is unique, with a rhythm that is never predictable; during the weaving process, it is left to chance where the colour will fall, giving even the plainest rug a brilliant, unexpected shot of colour.  Each piece flickers with life; delicate floral motifs and geometric patterns imbued by random threads, and the essence of the life of the original.
