ndebele rug

Like the paintings on the facades of Ndebele villages, which are traditionally made by women, this kilim combines several geometric patterns, diverse in terms of style.

The kilim is an artisan method of rug making in which the weft is tightly woven on a manual loom, using only threads and no knotting. The result is a light fabric with no pile, similar to that of upholstery. It is a technique that offers great flexibility, a feature that GAN explores thoroughly to create high-impact details.

The Ndebele kilim series is inspired by the way in which the Ndebele people of South Africa, from which the collection takes its name, decorate the facades of their homes with dynamic and colorful geometric patterns. Designer Sandra Figuerola reinterpreted these designs in terms of pattern and color palette, and transferred them to a textile medium that works perfectly with contemporary spaces.

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.
