backstitch composition rug

Design Raw Edges
100% new wool
Made by GAN

The reverse side of embroidery work was the inspiration from which the Backstitch collection was born, with its seemingly random stitches, the result of the pattern that is meant to be shown on the side that is visible. Raw-Edges' designers discovered this frantic and irregular world while learning the technique of embroidery and, fascinated by its hidden and involuntary beauty, they created the suggestive designs that make up the Backstitch collection.

Deepening the possibilities offered by hand-operated looms, at GAN, they have gone a step further by exploring not only the traditional flat hand-loom designs, but also elements with high volume, practically three-dimensional, using pure virgin wool that is knotted, cut, braided or looped.

Its manufacture combines a hand loom technique with hand-embroidered areas. The embroidery work is made by the GAN Women's Unit, a team composed of female artisans in northern India. Powered by GAN, it offers autonomy and economic independence to the women who make up this group through stable and well-paid work.

This is one of the most representative pieces of the Backstitch collection, a series designed by Raw-Edges studio and inspired by the apparent randomness of the back of embroidery work. The Composition Green model is made with a predominance of green tones. Its energetic embroidery hints at a particular shape or pattern, giving it a certain artistic nuance, so it can be used both as a rug and as a wall tapestry. It is available in two sizes as well as in the Composition Brick version, in pink and coral tones. The series includes two other models, Calm and Busy, with similar inspiration but a different stitching style.

Anti-slip underlays are an easy to install solution to improve the care of your rugs. They prevent friction and wear and tear, prolonging the rugs useful life and keeping them well ventilated by preventing direct contact with the floor. Custom sizes are also available by calling the hive showroom.
