FRONT London launched a new collection of hand knotted wool and silk rugs by German designer Jan Kath. Called Erased Heritage, the rugs combine traditional Persian ornamentation (such as the Egyptian Mamluks, Iranian Bidjars and Turkish Knyas) with Kath’s trademark distressed effects.
German rug designer Kath creates contemporary hand-woven rug designs using traditional materials like hand-combed Tibetan wool and Chinese silk. His designs display a synergy between contemporary minimalism and old world craft. Kath has stores in both Berlin and New York.
