ABOUT OUR SUNSTRIPE RUG

‘Sunstripe’ is our second project in collaboration with Made By Node and the Kumbeshwar Tecnical School Nepal.

Launched at the PATTERNITY Biennale ‘Pattern Power Superstripe’ in 2013 –  the rug forms a salutation to the sun which plays a key part in the making process. The bold monochrome design is a nod the traditional drying technique during which the rugs are arranged in neat lines a’top the Nepalese rooftops.

‘Sunstripe’ has been made by employees of the Kumbeshwar Technical School, a founding member of Fair Trade Nepal.

At PATTERNITY we are committed to understanding the manufacturing processes behind our products and projects. We are proud to use the power of pattern to bring attention to wider and worthwhile issues – in this case the importance of Fair Trade manufacture.
