Delightfully tactile and hand-tufted in India, coloured using earth-conscious acid-free dyes; a subtle sorbet yellow hue and complimenting dark navy come together in an abstract placement of shape and colour. Drawing inspiration from her own surroundings, Manz created pencil drawings and geometric cut-outs based on the shapes formed as sunlight peered through her studio windows. Available in four striking designs, with various tufting techniques used throughout, each rug boasts a tactile quality whilst the placement of block colour and oblong shape add minimalistic charm. The Balance rug is the perfect addition to a carefully curated interior, place in front of a sofa, lounge chair or at the side of a bed for an understated introduction of soft pastel colour. Proceeds from the production of each Balance rug help to support children’s education in Nepal. Shop the rest of the Cecile Manz rug series here.
