Limited Edition of 10p. Handcrafted Wool & Silk.
Contact for Price. 

Inspired by the sunny Middle East and its unique floors & ceilings, “Shade” stands at the intersection of illusion and reality, light and matter, geometry and transparency. Hand-made in Turkey, the rug is composed of 400 meters of carefully crafted wool strips that are hand-stitched to each other in 4 layers and axis using silk threads. 

The intersecting strips reveal unique graphics deconstructed from the Middle Eastern patterns, resembling the light rays inside the shade. Going beyond the traditional techniques, Tamer Nakisci explores the possibilities into the rug making; tying the future to the past.

As a result of an ongoing collaboration, we have designed a variety of experiences; starting from their door sign to unforgettable launch parties. Below are some of those outcomes of our fruitful collaboration.
