Fragment is a rug with torn edges and a fading pattern like a wall in decay. The certain fascination we feel with a ruin of a castle or fragmentary pieces of historic objects is nourished from the imaginative space opened to our inner eye. Our fantasy can wander and drift away into stories from times gone by – Fragment is like a window into an imaginary past.Fragment was developed together with the Patina rug for rug specialists Stepevi. An intense and profound research has brought forth a completely new quality of rugs. Fragment is a rug with a semi-felted wool surface, generating a look of natural individuality and with slightly irregular edges. Fragment’s style is that of unpretentious homeliness. Fragment is a perfect rug for a living atmosphere, where people feel at home.Time matures objects in infinite shades and uncountable subtle differences. Aging and maturation are processes of improvement. It’s the difference, the personality and the distinctiveness that makes matured objects unique – we can see our own individuality in the inconceivable multitude the world has to offer.For Fragment a lot of effort was put into creating rugs with qualities of matured objects. Delicate shades of colour and a natural apparition of pure sheep wool bring the rugs of the series to life. Fragment is the art of subtle maturation.
