Sliced Quartz Beige

What inspires the making of a carpet? In the case of this Jan Kath design, the objective is to recreate the uniqueness of marble and onyx. The realization of design is an extremely time consuming process. Since there is no repeat pattern, it represents a special challenge to even the most experienced weavers. The fibres of wool and high percentage of silk creates a fascinating contrast, as Jan Kath explains: “It is precisely this natural anarchy of thousands and thousands of color points that makes this piece unique.”
