Sitawi – Best Earth Tones

“Burnt hues and elemental forms to set the hearth aflame”

Wallpaper* Magazine has taken notice – yet again – of one of our products. This time it’s the rug Sitawi of the Legends of Carpets collection. The popular British design and lifestyle publication has bestowed upon our carpet one of the much coveted Wallpaper* Design Awards, specifically in the category “Best Earth Tones.” Of course, it goes without saying that the warm, earthy hues of the rug is what caught the magazine’s eye.

Inspired by the beauty of African landscapes, Walter Knoll's carpet collection translates abstract painting into timeless, woven works of art. Wool from the Tibetan highlands, finest Chinese silk and nettle yarn all possess exceptional qualities which consequently characterize the rugs. Sitawi, “blooming” in Swahili, induces sensorial stimuli: as if in front of a white sea of flowers in the yellow sand of the desert, this unique natural spectacle created by the carpet becomes a palpable experience.
