Gabrielle is hand-woven in a new bouclé quality made from 100% linen which gives the rug a light and dry look. By applying linear effects along both warp and weft, designer Maja Johansson Starander has transformed artistic passion and skilled handcrafting into an exquisite rug. Inspiration for the look was drawn from vintage textiles as well as carefully mended details on clothes and everyday objects. Gabrielle comes with new proportions, presented as a slightly asymmetric square rug in three unique color schemes.
