Inspired by our daughter Freya’s first attempts at drawing - mostly comprised of pages and pages of empty frames - which we interpreted as her preparing herself to try something new. Frames embraces the contradictions inherent to self expression - reserve and spontaneity; delicacy and practicality; self preservation and recklessness.
These contradictions are also present in the composition. Bamboo silk is a soft and ethereal yarn whose iridescence causes it to look different depending on which which way the pile is facing. For Frames, we deliberately chose colors that interact with light in order to highlight this feature. These are rugs that begin to change as soon as you lay them on the ground, where, as they are covered by overlapping footprints, they become an evolving map of a household.
