or Call to Order

Tech­ni­colour Flock, a design by Peter Saville for Kvadrat, is a rug that cele­brates the connec­tion between wool produc­tion and the sheep them­selves. The craft­ing process for this rug involves hand-spin­ning colored flocks of wool, result­ing in irreg­u­lar and volu­mi­nous weft yarns that mirror the diver­sity of indi­vid­ual sheep and their unique colorations.

This metic­u­lous approach ensures that each rug in the Flock collec­tion possesses its distinct color expres­sion, much like the varied hues found among a flock of sheep. The five avail­able color­ways blend natural wool tones with pigments remi­nis­cent of those used to mark sheep, creat­ing a harmo­nious yet visu­ally dynamic palette.

Tech­ni­colour Flock adds warmth, char­ac­ter, and a touch of whimsy to any inte­rior space with its rich texture, indi­vid­u­al­ized color vari­a­tions, and nod to the natural world. Whether used as a focal point or as a comple­men­tary element in a room, Flock invites tactile explo­ration and visual delight. 


Peter Saville


Peter Saville grew up in Manchester, Lancashire, and received his early education at St. Ambrose College. In 1965, he attended Manchester Polytechnic to study graphic design and remained there till 1978.

Peter Saville is deemed one of the generation's most famous British graphic designers and art directors. He gained popularity by designing several record sleeves for Factory Records while serving as art director of the studios.

Unlike most 'commercial artists' of the time, and indeed since, Saville was free to create without approval. He made his art in the context of mass production, accessing an audience through pop music, best shown in the series of record sleeves he created for Joy Division and New Order between 1979 and 1993.

Throughout the years, Peter Saville produced brilliant artwork, achieving creative and commercial success.
