The Poetry rug is an expression of passionate weaving. Poetry is created in the Arkad-pattern with dark earthy tones shifting to light ethereal colors. Maja Johansson created the pattern that is reminiscent of building blocks, but also holds a history of knowledge and genuine craftsmanship. Poetry is an ever-relevant poem bridging the gap between yesterday, today and tomorrow – where the rug tells a compelling story through color and shape.
