Poetry perfected. An expression of passionate weaving. Poetry is a rug in Arkad-pattern with dark earthy tones shifting to light ethereal colors. The edgings on both sides are unique; seven cm wide in three wide colored streaks. From lightness to darkness, dawn to dusk, stone by stone, element by element – the pattern is reminiscent of building blocks, but also holds a history of knowledge and genuine craftsmanship. A patchwork, a mosaic, a tapestry turned into an eclectic figuration of perfection as a result of uncompromising craft at the top of its game. An ever-relevant poem bridging the gap between yesterday, today and tomorrow – where the rug tells a compelling story through color and shape. A story that is yours. And Kasthalls.
