Chimbuka Carpet.

Design: Helmut Scheufele.

A Swahili saying states: “A good beginning promises a good end.” Chimbuka means sunrise, and the design reflects the colors of the sky: intense red and blue tones as if conjured up by the morning or evening light. 

Low-pile carpet made from 58% wool, 37% silk and 5% nettle.

Chimbuka, Swahili for sunrise.

“A good beginning promises a good end.”
