Schleypen’s work is often described as floor couture. Her new Tweed collection celebrates the cutting-edge of a classic cloth. It’s a nod to Chanel. It’s tweed boldly and beautifully reinvented for floors.
Each tetris-like cube is hand sculptured and carved in relief to give a full three-dimensional experience. These are technically accomplished and complex designs comprising many shades to create a striking pattern. Colourways are Brit Pop red and green and Old School blue and grey. Materials contrast New Zealand wool with lustre cotton.
It is the heady mix of the prescribed and the unforeseen, the innovative fusion of fashion and interiors that makes her rugs so highly sought after and desired.
