The rug is entirely made by hand. The special technique of hand-tufting in different directions enhances the three-dimensional feel of Basket. Several threads in different colours creates the desired lustre. The rug is then carefully cut by hand into a tromp l’oeil graphic pattern that pays homage to Swedish handicraft traditions such as birch bark baskets and rucksacks. Sharp angles and soft transitions play the roles in a shadow play that is both illusion and reality. It comes in beige or grey and in four sizes but can be customized as a special order in other sizes.
