02/08/2019 - Jaipur Rugs, India’s most ethical producer of handmade carpets, and Italian designer Matteo Cibic have come together to bring out a vibrant collection of handcrafted rugs that are inspired by Cibic’s visit to Jaipur, Rajasthan. The city was recently inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
 

Cibic has taken cues from the city’s architecture, colors and the miniature paintings and played on the culture and beauty of the historic city. This pop, graphical and colorful collection depicts a phantasmagorical India!

Cibic has mixed geometric and decorative patterns together in this bold, contemporary collection and used the many shades of pink, rose, orange and peach that are typical to the city. He has used bold motifs and iconic figures such as the Rajasthani mustachioed soldier, the monkeys, the triangular flag, as well as iconic views of Jaipur's buildings and monuments.

The collection is named after Wunderkammern, known as cabinets of curiosities that came into existence in the mid-16th century in Europe. These room-like cabinets were repositories for all types of wondrous and exotic objects.

At the show, Jaipur Rugs will also exhibit contemporary designs by in-house designer Kavi and celebrity designer Gauri Khan.
