"Palette and Zap depict an explosion of colour that developed out of painted and collaged forms combined with computer manipulation. So much of our visual experience now is rooted in the saturation of images via screen-based technology. My intention therefore, was to transform this visual experience of colour into a physical and tactile one via the beauty of the natural materials and their appeal to the sense of touch." Fiona Curran
This rug is entirely handmade, from the spinning of the wool to the weaving on the loom. It is unique, and has been crafted by weavers in the Kathmandu area, whose skills have been passed down through many generations. We use only the highest quality wool for our rugs, that of the Tibetan sheep, for its durability, rich texture and subtle colour variation. To this we have added the vision of a world class designer, and the result is a hand knotted contemporary rug of extraordinary beauty, which will itself become an heirloom to be treasured for years to come.
