September is an elegant, highly tactile rug that provides a joyful centrepiece to any home. In Hella’s own words the design is a “botanical and material collage”, brought to life thanks to a host of different materials involved in its construction. Here, hand-spun Tibetan wool combines with nettle, bamboo viscose and silk in vibrant colour fields.
Featuring an intriguing surface of colourful geometric elements embedded into a natural base, September reveals a large abstract shadow of a leaf at a distance, which is knotted in a higher pile than the bright shapes that first attract the eye.
Two slightly different designs and colourways see the leaf differ in shape, and the placement of the geometric shapes vary across the rug. In addition, the natural colour of the nettle differs from season to season with a pleasant irregularity, highlighted by shimmering silk. Taken together, all of these elements contribute to a sophisticated design with unique variation.
