Inspired by the vivid colours in images from the Hubble telescope, Jan Kath wanted to create hand-knotted rugs that were replicas of high-resolution photographs of space. It has taken him more than 15 years – and with only a small group of specialist weavers – to realise his vision.
The impression of gas clouds, asteroid nebulae and depth is created with a palette of up to 160 colours – a technical achievement in rug design. In each design there are more than 150-200 knots per square inch, ensuring rugs will last for generations.
Material: hand-spun Tibetan highland wool and silk.
Custom size and shape.
