Blackpop are excited to announce their collaboration with
contemporary producers Knots Rugs
Three stunning handwoven rugs have been produced using two
of the designs that Blackpop created for their 'Collections'
collaboration with Sir John Soane's Museum.
'Fresco' & 'Capriccio'
Made in Nepal and Jaipur using age-old techniques, these
beautiful pieces are available in two qualities.
150 Tibetan Knot made in Nepal & 11/11 Persian knot made in India
The Tibetan edition of the 'Fresco' and 'Capriccio' rugs are hand made
by skilled artisans in Nepal using age old techniques.
These are made all on the same pile height of 5mm,
and there are 39 colours in this rug.
The Indian edition of ‘Fresco’ is made in two pile heights to give a relief look (high/low) from Tibetan wool and Chinese silk. It is woven using oxidised wool and silk - giving it an antique look due to the process.
There are 44 colours in this rug.
Here's a short video of the making process in Nepal
