Its special colours and atmospheric look were inspired by the ocean and the different color tones of the sea. As one moves around the carpet, the carpet itself seems to move. Depending on light and point if view its colours and nuances change. Just like the ocean itself, it sometimes appears to gleam smooth and silvery in the sun, at other times descending into shadowy darkness and clouded mystery. The design makes use of irregular layering, which alludes to the depictions of tectonic plates in ocean cartography and transform the rug into a dynamic ocean withi one’s own four walls.
The rug was hand-woven in Nepal and is made of 100% silk. The shimmering silk and the special method used to dye the threads in nine different colour gradations engender striking visual effects that bring to mind the ocean waters.
