The VK-10 rug, reintroduced here by Danish Nordic Modern in collaboration with the Klint family, is one of the last designs Vibeke Klint managed to make in the early 00s. VK-10 is woven in the so-called chain rope technique with Vibeke Klint's characteristic details in flat weave, "lightning fire" and "mouse stairs" in black and white. Combining the two techniques, warp rope and flat weave, is challenging as they work against each other and only the most skilled and experienced weavers are able to balance the rug, i.e. to make the edges flush and straight.
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 in pure New Zealand wool 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.
