RUG VK-5

Selected handwoven rugs
Design Vibeke Klint

In collaboration with the Klint family and weaver Gitte Annette Knudsen, who worked with Vibeke Klint for 8 years as a weaver, NORDICMODERN has put together a collection of 8 different rug designs. The designs are based on unique rugs that have never been in production before.

Our collection of hand-woven rugs designed by Vibeke Klint is made in Northern India. We work with the third generation of a local production facility with their own dye works which boasts proud traditions of craftmanship, extensive experience of weaving technique and in-depth knowledge of materials. Together we select the most suitable yarn grades and material compositions.

Each rug is hand-woven and therefore unique. The weave varies slightly from rug to rug, depending on who has woven it. The wool yarn is hand-dyed, and therefore slight color variations due to the nature of the wool and the dyeing process may occur. This is all part of the rug’s character.

Available as a rug

The VK-5 rug is actually the very first design by Vibeke Klint based on a rug which she made for her mother in the 1940’s. The original rug has been in the family ever since and is now owned by her oldest son, Peter Klint. The rug is based on the double weave technique, giving the rug a pleasant thickness and softness.

The rug is available with pattern in black and white with a 3 cm visible white edge.

All rugs benefit from lying on an underlay. The smaller the rug, the more important it is that the rug has an underlay. It extends the lifetime of the rug and makes the rug more slip proof.

Vibeke Klint (1927-2019)

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 rugs, home and clothing textiles to interior design and decoration projects, teaching and communication, is an important part of Danish design and Danish cultural heritage

Material

All rugs by NORDICMODERN are made of 100% wool from New Zealand

Wool has a natural coating of fat which makes it dirt repellant.

Furthermore, as opposed to most other fibres, wool does not burn.

Thus, wool does not need to be treated with fire retardants in order to be used even at places with special fire requirements.

Maintenance

Easily maintained – high quality wool

Daily cleaning

Use the vacuum cleaner frequently when the rug is new. It is normal that the rug produces shed fluff for a period of time. Vacuum in the direction of the plie and never with the brush down.

Stains

Immediately dab the area with a white cotton cloth to prevent the stain from penetrating the fibres.

Carefully sprinkle a bit of water on the stain and dab again with a white cotton cloth.

If the stain does not disappear, the rug should be cleaned by a professional, for instance: Vaskeriet.dk

In order to avoid staining from the floor it is recommended to use an underlay.

Rugs in warp repp technique should always have an underlay.

The use of an underlay also assures that the rug lies even and prolongs the lifetime of the rug

Wear

It is a good idea to turn the rug around twice a year to avoid uneven wear and to place e.g. plastic or felt protection under the feet of heavy furniture standing on the rug.

Note that the colors may fade if the rug is exposed to strong sunlight for a longer period of time.
