As an admitted fanatic of geometric designs, my bias toward the new ‘Infinity Collection’ by Sarawagi Rugs is self-evident. Designed by textile designer Else Bozec over the course of a months long residency in Kathmandu, Nepal during 2017 C.E. the collection reminds design need not push the technical limits of technique, but rather can excel by masterfully utilizing those limits – in this case the regimented structure of handknotting – to synergistically reïnforce and amplify the design. The varied visual and tactile textures embody the same lively visage of urban façades, with each region inviting new though and contemplation to almost ask – as one would of said façades – ‘What’s going on (in) here?’ I don’t know, but I am captivated while I try and figure it out.
