ruud van oosterhout designs a series of special carpets in a pure way. he appropriately calls it: ‘understated chic’. “as a designer i’m fascinated by the beauty of pure materials such as a blend of mohair and wild silk – without any additives. the technique of the hand spun fibres combined with the traditional crafts and knotting skills of the carpet weavers in nepal, are for me the purest way of working.”
