The colors in the rug will be perceived differently depending on the angle you view it from.

Gummi Twist Handtufted
In search of forms and colours which are in line with a living room´s floor, I designed "Gummi Twist". "Gummi Twist" is the german name of a kids jumping game, which is twiddled with a long elastic. The elastic composes lots of different exciting shapes during the game...
Gummi Twist Handtufted - Orange carpet from India.
Handtufted carpets are made by hand using high quality raw materials, but rather than having knots that need to be tied, a special ”tufting gun” is used to push loops of yarn through a scrim (pre-woven backing).
The last stage in the production is trimming the pile to the desired length, thereby exposing the thread ends for a softer pile.
This technique allows for a quick and effective process and gives the weaver more freedom and range to create detailed patterns and shapes otherwise restricted in handknotted carpets. The end result is a long lasting high quality carpet at an affordable price.
Wool is a natural textile fibre and one of the most sought after materials for rug making. Wool rugs are highly durable and perfectly capable of resisting wear and tear of every day use. Wool has a naturally dirt-repelling effect and is easy to keep clean. It is also flame resistant and characteristically retains it’s shape so that the pile of the rug always rises.
