We have teamed up with Ptolemy Mann at the Design Junction show held in London in September 2015 at the old building of central St Martins school of art and design. See our latest collection of these Bauhaus inspired flatwoven Gelims designed and coloured by Ptolemy and made by our Indian manufacturer.
This Grey and Ochre Gelim designed by Ptolemy Mann and made by our weavers in India, was chosen by Ercol to be used in their 2015 brochure. We are very please to have been asked by them for help for the 2016 brochure also and have supplied different rugs for this which look fantastic. However you will have to wait till they launch the brochure. Thank you Ercol for helping us show how good our rugs look in situ and with their great furniture designs.
Rug Maker and Ptolemy Mann rented The Gallery, Craft Central, in Clerkenwell, London to show off the new 2015 collection of Gelims.
Inspired by flatweave Gelims discovered in Northern Iran Ptolemy sourced dyers and weavers who were able to achieve elegant and mesmerising blending of colours.
Visually soft and feathery yet strong and graphic, almost Rothko-esq, this collection is a beautiful example of Ptolemy’s ‘chromatic minimalism’ celebrating an ancient technique which until recently had been forgotten.
Created with Ptolemy’s unique signature sense of colour these are truly original designs. Hovering between fine artworks and functional design they evoke a sense of timeless craftsmanship.
Designed by Ptolemy Mann and made by Rug Maker.
