100% new wool, hand tufted
Handmade by Nanimarquina
"The character "Jie" is made up of a radical and a phonetic character. The ancient ideograms of the Chinese Jie character depicts on one side the street as an intersection, evoking "life" at the crossroads, while the center portion of the character is made up of two "earth" characters whose ideogram shows a clay on potter's wheel... a connection to the ceramic colors used by Neri&Hu in the series." -according to Neri & Hu.
Neri & Hu takes inspiration from the tile patterns of Shanghai streets, a place where life literally happens. The name of the collection corresponds to Jie 街, the Chinese character that embodies the essence of a city: the constant movement, dynamism and frenetic activity. The result is an eclectic hand-tufted rug presenting different pile heights and finishes, made of 100% New wool.
Hand tufting is a manual weaving process that uses a pistol-shaped contraption. The rug's design is made over a taut cotton fabric and weaved with a tufting gun, which pushes and cuts sections of wool thread that are fastened to the base with a layer of latex.
