While the company is known for its earthy tones and contemporary-take-on-traditional rug weaving, the new Heirloom Collection takes subtlety to a new level. Incredibly soft and luxurious underfoot, this collection features pure wool and colourways influenced by the iridescent beauty of nature and aged metals.
Falling under the umbrella of their Latitude Collection, the Berber Knot release brings a modern influence to some of Africa’s animated tribal patterns. Sally Pottharst, co-founder of Armadillo&Co, grew up in Southern Africa, who says the new range is a natural progression for the company. This exploration has resulted in six designs, all hand knotted in pure wool in soft, natural tones.
With muted colours and a soft feel underfoot, the Braid Weave adds an understated elegance and calming influence to contemporary life. As part of the Perennial Collection, the Braid Weave echoes the collection’s circular geometry, while adding a more luxurious feel. Like the other rugs in this collection, the Braid Weave is hand plaited, gives each rug an organic beauty that is difficult to replicate with machine made products.
