Kina Carpet.

Design: Helmut Scheufele.

The Yoruba in West Africa have a saying: “If something remains in the dark, dive to the bottom.” In Swahili, Kina means depth. The deep, rich colors of the design are inspired by the spices at the bazaar and the glowing evening sky over Marrakesh. 

Low-pile carpet made from 45% wool, 35% nettle and 20% silk.

Kina, Swahili for depth.

“If something remains in the dark, dive to the bottom.”
