They take their strength from the source of creativity of that continent, transposed into valuable, timeless design. The delicate shades of pink are reminiscent of reflections at sunset, where suddenly a green thread twinkles in a sea of warm sand colours. Individual carpet pictures full of naturalness and elegance.
Each carpet is different and was inspired by different elements of the African wilderness.
BAHARI - EXPANSE
BAHARI. The expanse of the veldt – transposed to modern carpet art. Wool from the Tibetan highlands, nettle fibres and silk overlap and create fascinating colour nuances.
KIWUMBI - SANDSTORM
KIWUMBI. The Inspiration for Kiwumbi is the Sahara sand carried by strong winds. The high proportion of wool makes the deep-pile carpet pleasantly soft and gives it a vibrant depth.
CHIMBUKA - SUNRISE
CHIMBUKA. The colours of the sky. Just as light projects bright colours onto the sky in the morning and evening, intense reds and blues are the dominating impression of Chimbuka.
KURUKA - LEAP
KURUKA. The wool for Kuruka comes from black and from white sheep. Here and there, there is a spot of orange and turquoise in silk. The high proportion of these fine fabric fibres guarantees a gentle shimmer.
MPANDO - CULTURE
MPANDO. Mpando reveals its particular charm in the interaction of the colours. A green stripe and an orange stripe rise from a sea of different colours – intensive and expressive.
KINA - DEPTH
KINA. An intense burst of colour. Kina plays with rich colours in elegant reds, browns and blues. Inspired by the colours of the spices at the bazaar and the glowing evening sky over Marrakesh.
SITAWI - BLOSSOM
SITAWI. Blossoming desert. Sitawi ensures bright sensory impressions. A white sea of blossom in the yellow sand of the desert transports this unique natural spectacle to the world of carpets.
SAFARA - FIRE
SAFARA. The volcano – the origin of life. Inspired by glowing lava on dark ground, Safara gives its own expression to our fascination with fire.
KUPANDA - PLANT
KUPANDA. Tropical landscapes. Kupanda translates luxuriant water and plant worlds into the modern art of carpets. Threads made of wool, nettle fibres and silk create dense jungle scenery.
KILIMA - HILL
KILIMA. Kilima traces fine lines in fresh colours. The carpet appears both colourful and reserved at the same time.
NINASAFIRI - I TRAVEL
NINASAFIRI. Ninasafiri is a combination of subtle nuances in beige. Equal amounts of wool and nettle fibres are used as the basic constituents of this carpet. The proportion of silk lends a touch of elegant splendour.
SALAMA - PEACE
SALAMA. Salama works thanks to its harmonious colours. The materials are also balanced out: the deep-pile carpet consists of virtually equal proportions of wool from the Tibetan highlands, nettle fibres and silk.
LIMBIKA - PATIENT
LIMBIKA. Beauty is in the harmony of things. Like the soil in Africa, Limbika shows traces of the sun in a harmonious mix of colours. Natural earthy tones set the scene, colour accents are provided in orange.
