In the 1980s and 90s, Vibeke Klint often weaved in a technique called warp repp. Unlike flat weave, where it is the weft that forms the pattern, it is the warp – the vertical thread – that forms the pattern.
Setting the loom up for a rug in warp repp takes up to 1 week, as there are 6 threads per. centimeter. This means that there are often well over 1000 warp threads in a rug.
Most often, she combined warp repp with flat weave technique in her characteristic details in a “lightning” pattern. This is a challenging combination, as the two techniques work against each other and are difficult to balance, i.e. that the edges align.
Vibeke Klint mastered the difficult art of limitation, which makes a design timeless, of which the VK-3 design is an excellent example.
The VK-3 rug is available in 5 sizes: 60×130 cm, 80×240 cm, 140×200 cm, 170×240 cm and 200×300 cm.
Available in 2 colors: black or white with lightning details in black and white.
