East and Lucky

Danskina builds on its collection of contemporary tufted rugs with the pre-launch
of two new hand-knotted designs by Dutch-born Karin An Rijlaarsdam.

From her studio in Shanghai Karin has created the innovative hand-knotted
and hand-woven rugs East and Lucky. Karin’s work is often characterized by
a combination of influences, including her Dutch background and time spent
working and travelling in Brazil and India. She is also well known for designs
that celebrate the beauty of the handmade. 

East was inspired by Chinese knotting techniques. Hand-woven from a single
rope this is a thick, warm, durable rug that finds its beauty in simplicity and
handmade imperfection.

For the tactile and organic Lucky, Karin turned to the Brazilian lifestyle and traditions.
Lucky is hand-knotted from a twisted cabled yarn, the knots having the appearance
of small rosettes. The design comes in five colours. 

East and Lucky are both made by skilled craftsmen from Northern India.
