The Subas Karo Rug, available in three sizes, is a subtle, monochrome design by Sebastian Herkner, who experimented with mixing different structures and surfaces. The entirely handmade piece combines a stripe and check pattern as well as various pile heights and weaving techniques, giving the wool rug a contemporary feel while showcasing the artful craftsmanship of the Colombian weavers. It’s an understated, yet intriguing design that’s great for adding textures to any room
Each rug is manufactured in family-run workshops located in Suba, a suburb of Colombia’s capital Bogotá. The craftspeople there have learnt the techniques to process sheep wool from previous generations. Alone the preparation of the wool takes three days, while the artesanos and artesanas work 15 days on producing the final rug
German designer Sebastian Herkner is a long-term collaborator of ames and has visited Colombia multiple times to experience the country’s cities, nature and people first hand. He also visited many of the ateliers that ames has partnered with to learn about the unique traditional crafts of Colombia's regions. A sought-after contemporary designer and recipient of many industry awards, he has worked with many international design brands, creating intriguing pieces that showcase his intuition for interesting material, colour and texture combinations
