IKE and KOI, in Japanese respectively “pond” and “carp” are two rugs in pure wool in the shape of a parasol, produced entirely by hand by the best Indian artisans.
The project is the result of research that began with a trip to Asia and the study of Japanese prints at the end IXX century. representing the local fashion just before the Western contamination.
Thus was born the love for this romantic and iconic object which in the dream world represents adaptability and luck and the desire to transform it into something that goes beyond the carpet and towards a window open to a mysterious and colorful world.
IKE its dominant colors are the blue of the pond and the red of the carp. It is the curiosity of exploration, the excitement of the entomologist, the beauty of movement.
