Katja is a rustic hand tufted wool rug with a pile cut in two different heights in an abstract organic pattern. Inspired by the Swedish fashion designer Katja of Sweden and her clothes in jersey, the designer Maja Johansson Starander has worked with an interpretation of textile as corpus.
A specially developed wool yarn with lots of volume has been used in a new unique 3D tuft technique to form the curly, frizzy even waffled surface. The yarn has a deeper colour on the inside which creates an interesting visual depth in the rug. Katja also has a simplistic but well made border.
This rug with its raw urban texture is presented in a both sensual and soft gesture. Like an exclusive piece of clothing fallen to the floor.
