Design by Sybilla, 2003.
Using a Picasso painting as a reference point, fashion designer, Sybilla, fills the white space with the essential features of flowers — black stems, petals and the other stalks are interlaced, forming an elemental tapestry. In the line of abstract art, this work implies a rhythm between femininity and toughness, imprecision and simplicity.
Made of hand-tufted 100% New Zealand wool, the Black on White Flores Rug by nanimarquina is available in two sizes.
This is a handmade craft product. Minor variations, in size and color, are inevitable. Do not dryclean.
Material(s): 100% New Zealand wool
