PATCHA By cc-tapis
Handmade Himalayan Wool rug
Silk, Himalayan Wool
A captivating composition of color and pattern comes alive in Patricia Urquiola’s latest collection for cc-tapis, Patcha. Utilizing the patch-work spontaneity of mixedmedia collage, Urquiola expresses the gesture of overlapping and assembles strips of mint green, lavender, taupe, burgundy and speckled technicolor fields. Layering one atop another to create inventive graphic compositions. “I tried to emphasize the concept of spontaneity,” she says of the process.
A myriad of textures, pile heights and colors meet in each rug, utilizing sustainable dyeing techniques which use less water and novel materials like castoff silk from Indian Sari production. Central to Urquiola’s creative process is the investigation of reused and upcycled materials, breathing new life into once discarded wool. The speckled technicolor fields are created by using left-over silk and surplus wool taken from the production from previous rugs. The result is a combination of woolen fragments that resemble jagged papers and colorful cardboard, assembled in an extemporized composition.
