Kolam - AKWB-7004


The inspiration for this series of hand-knotted carpets is Kolam, the ritualistic folk art of creating patterns from rice flour at the entrance of south Indian homes. Lines and loops are drawn around an underlying grid of dots, bringing together the geometric and organic. While preserving the sacrosanct symmetry in individual forms, the designers break free from traditional rules creating unexpected and joyful studies in color and form, richly layered and dynamic in composition. Kolam has an ephemeral quality that is made permanent with each handwoven knot, through the weaving process. Both crafts, with the lyrical, rhythmic movement of the hand share a meditative quality in their making.
