Safara Carpet.

Design: Helmut Scheufele.

Safara is Swahili for fire. In Namibia they know: “If you don’t want to freeze, seek out closeness to fire.” This design plays with the fascination of fire – the glowing red of the embers on dark earth. 

Low-pile carpet made from 49% wool, 42% silk and 9% nettle.
