Kuschel writes a love letter to wool. It says that weaving can become a means of communicating and connecting with the surrounding environment, a practical and poetic, ancient and sustainable means, thanks to which the human spirit finds one of its purest and most genuine expressions. The texture comprises of intertwined and hand-knotted threads and fringes in warm or cold shades reflected in the wool and silk yarns for a tactile and visual experience rich in nuances and craftsmanship. With this precious wool rug available in two versions, Salem van der Swaagh signs her first collaboration with Tacchini.
