Description

Mercado Moderno

The contemporary textile designer Ines Schertel manufactured an one of a kind rug using a six thousand year old technique. The rug is not made as textiles in a loom, but, instead, is felted through the friction of the wool fibers. The combination of friction, water and soap contracts the wool fibers producing the unique pieces of textiles. It is the designer’s desire to revitalize the ancient technique of making carpets, which originated from the nomadic tribes working with sheep wool by hand. The knowledge from the past - with which the designer had direct contact in Kyrgyzstan - is used to produce real, pure, 100% natural carpets. The wool comes from the herd of Textel sheep that are kept in a native camp in her ranch in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
