Description

Material 100 % natural virgin wool The striking Zenues rug, a design by Sebastian Herkner, is inspired by old Colombian civilisations. When visiting the jewellery museum in Bogota, the designer discovered the gold works by the Zenu culture, which are decorated with so-called Narigeura symbols. These peoples lived in the Caribbean plains, through which the three large rivers Magdalena, Cauca and San Jorge flow. Routinely they’d flood the fields so the Zenúes built a vast system of channels covering more than 500,000 hectares, controlling the flow of the water, so that people and harvest would be protected. These landscapes inspired first the goldsmiths of the Zenúes – and now Sebastian Herkner. “These graphic objects have intrigued me for quite a while. Their symbolism is so narrative and expressive”, says the designer. The result: a subtle, yet striking, wool rug with various pile depths in a gentle crème white Each rug is woven with natural virgin wool on traditional looms in ateliers in the Colombian Andes. The ‘channels’ of the monochrome rugs are shaven by hand into the pile and it takes the craftspeople four weeks to complete one rug Product type Rug Materials 100 % natural virgin wool Colours Natural monochrom Country of origin Colombia Place of use Residental Environment Indoor Design and inspiration The striking Zenues rugs, a design by Sebastian Herkner, is inspired by old Colombian civilisations.
