VK-6 , exclusive, handmade runners and rugs of New Zealand wool, originally designed by Vibeke Klint, now relaunched by the Danish brand, Nordic Modern in collaboration with the Klint family and weaver Gitte Annette Knudsen, who worked for Vibeke Klint for a number of years.
The handwoven Vibeke Klint carpets are made in northern India. Nordic Modern collaborates with third generation weavers in a local production workshop with associated dyehouse and showroom, who have proud craft traditions, extensive experience with weaving techniques and a solid knowledge of materials.
Vibeke Klint (1927-2019) has been described as the 20th century's most significant Danish weaver and designer. Her life's work, which includes everything from carpets, home and clothing textiles to interior design and furnishing projects, teaching and communication, is an important part of Danish design and Danish cultural heritage. Vibeke Klint developed her textiles in close dialogue between her watercolors, materials and weavings.
Each individual rug is handwoven and therefore unique. The weaving varies slightly from rug to rug, depending on the person who weaves the rug - and the wool yarn is hand-dyed, so there may be variations in the color tones.
An undermat is included for the runner.
