Designers team WHYNOT! created carpet Lietuva inspired by Lithuanian identity – its ancient traditions, colours, clothing, and the handicraft. One of the unique Lithuanian craft elements is colourful woven stripe once used in the national costumes. Different yarns are crossing together and creating geometric patterns, stylized flowers ending in elegant colours combinations. In the carpet these artistic signs are used next to the contemporary modern linen craftwork, altogether bringing the touch of Lithuanian soul. Lietuva is available in different colours which defines Lithuanian nature: blue of the lakes and frost; light grey reflecting the sky; green of its woods contrasting with wild sand dunes. This is Lithuania portrayed in the carpet Lietuva.
How Its Made
This linen carpet is made entirely by hands in one of the eldest linen factories in Lithuania. While keeping the traditions, nevertheless, the craftsmen are going with new technologies as well, that’s why they use tufting technique – it is still made with care and hands, but in use with technologies.
