Lucky is constructed from a twisted cabled yarn developed exclusively for this design made from pure New Zealand wool. Hand-knotted by skilled craftsmen from Northern India, Lucky is made by hanging loose yarns from a loop, then two by two the warp yarns are knotted together, downwards, leaving loose cutpile fringes, which give a charming unfinished look. Tactile and organic, this thick, warm and durable rug suits most floors and interior styles, the knots have the appearance of small rosettes.
Karin found her inspiration for the design in Brazil. ‘I am always intrigued how rhythm and dance are deeply embedded into the culture here, connecting different generations and social layers,’ she explains. ‘One day I found a beautiful “afoxé”, a percussion instrument handmade out of a calabash gourd wrapped in a net of knotted rope and beads. This Afro-Brazilian instrument is often used in spiritual and activism-related music and dance performances. The afoxé became very popular in Bahia, Northern Brazil, which for me is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The knotted rope around the instrument inspired me to develop our hand-knotted design for Lucky.’
