Folklore meets zeitgeist. KELIM MOTIFS offers a consummate blend of playful kilim patterns – a salutation steeped in substance.These are carpets that tell the tale of traditional techniques, materials married with the influences and demands of modern times. Today’s zeitgeist is about naturalness and comfort in one, a sense of authenticity that even such a modern-day design has every ability to convey. The canvas for this work of art is provided by fine, hand-woven New Zealand wool, with elaborate embroidery carefully crafted by hand. As each stitch progresses, it unveils two totally different designs, rooted in a classic heritage, yet wrapped in contemporary clothing. A revelation of 12 combinations of totally different natural colours. What more can one say? – It warms the heart. The tree of life has been a symbol of the circle of existence, from beginning to end, for thousands of years. It is also the embodiment of fertility, the merging of many worlds, reflected in almost all cultures on Earth. It is depicted in faithful representations of nature as often as it appears in abstract form, with much importance attached to its branches and leaves. Highly stylised, yet restrained and subdued in terms of colour, its foliage now crosses the chasm to modernity.
