Handmade wool rug with geometric shapes
The »ames sala« collection arose during a unique design trip round Colombia. Designer Sebastian Herkner visited local craftsmen in whose families the traditional manufacturing methods have been handed down for centuries now from one generation to the next.
Inspired by Colombia’s fascinating culture and filled with deep respect for the artisans’ skills, Sebastian Herkner designed accessories and textiles for ames that are a marvelous meld of modern design and traditional manufacturing techniques. In this way ames offers exclusive design one-offs specially for your living room
In the Sibundoy Valley, between the Andes and the Amazonas, there is a font of knowledge on how to work with wool. It is therefore perfect place for ames to have the »nobsa« carpets made. Thanks to the pared-down patterns and decidedly geometrical forms, the fascinating colors of the woven pattern take center stage.
