Oyyo’s New Swedish Flat-Weaves Are a Master Class on the Reuse of Leftover Yarns

For Oyyo's new series, Landing Site Irregular, the focus was on the reuse of leftover dyed yarns to create experimental compositions in custom colors, such as vibrant-azure blue and light tangerine. Smaller in size than their original offerings, these rugs breathe new life into the yarn, but the geometric underpinnings remain, inspired by visionary architects and artists Shusaku Arakawa and Madeline Gins’s theories on space and color.

Tantuvi Travertine Collection Offsite Online

Tantuvi’s New Rugs Were Inspired By the Travertine Quarries of India and the Spanish Steps of Rome

On car journeys throughout India, Tantuvi's founder Arati Rao and Adam Sipe often pass through cities and villages set against a dramatic landscape of marble and quartz quarries, mountains, sand dunes, magical desert lakes, and jungles. “The sandstone color that permeates all these landscapes is always on my mind,” Rao says. “Travertine quarries are all over the region and the earth changes from beige to ochre then deep ruby as you move throughout.” These colors were the inspiration behind Tantuvi’s latest collection, fittingly called Travertine.

A Palazzo in Puglia Provides the Perfect Backdrop for These Vintage Rugs

Earlier this spring, T Magazine published a story on a new design hotel located inside a restored 1861 palazzo in the village of Gagliano del Capo, which seemed a perfect encapsulation of everything that's beautiful about Puglia, frescoed ceilings and all. The Australian-based company Tigmi Trading — which sources one-of-a-kind vintage and contemporary Berber rugs from Morocco — seems to have also taken note of the palazzo, which provides the backdrop to their latest collection, Casa D'Arte, in these photos.

The rugs are made with artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico, and are decorated with graphic, glyph-like symbols — although his more recent designs, which we're featuring here today, incorporate abstraction and curves.

Prediction: You’re Gonna Want Each One of These Abstract, Geometric Danish Rugs

Röd Studio specializes in rugs made with non-traditional materials, experimental forms, and a more conceptual idea of storytelling behind each composition. Their Assemblage collection, which employs materials like horse and goat hair to create a more three-dimensional work, was inspired by the visual identity of Marrakech, while their Face It pieces explore both the humanity and abstraction of masks.
