Pond Soumak

POND soumak

Pond is a tactile collection of handwoven rugs with a variation of heights and structures. The pattern is an abstraction of a fish shoal, tightly organized and coordinated in precise arrangements. Fast moving shoals usually form a wedge
shape while shoals that are travelling can form squares. This has been interpreted
in a collection of handwoven rugs in various colours. Charlotte von der Lancken has worked in close collaboration with Kateha and its weavers, using a combination
of weaving techniques in order to achieve the diamond shaped rug and the outlines through soumak-twist weaving. Pond soumak is edged with woven hemmed wool egdes in a contrasting colour.
