Universe

Materials: Himalayan wool and silk

Density: 300 000 knots/m²

“the universe is a box which contains the earth

which is a box which contains the house

which is a box which contains the humankind

which is a box which contains the soul

which is a box which contains the universe”

Inspired by an art piece that Sara Badr Schmidt had in one of her installations, this “thought leading thread” written on a monochrome background imposes itself as the focal point of the rug. “Universe” is minimalist in its design yet complex in its technique, as its tight and precise knotting makes it possible to obtain the small size and the sharpness of the characters on a dense weaving base.
