Handwoven Vibeke Klint runner designed in the late 1980s.
Materials: Weft in English felted wool, warp in New Zealand wool with a 5 cm folded black edge.
Technique: Warp repp with details (lightning) in flat weave.
The rug is reversible and can withstand even heavy use. 100% New Zealand wool has a high lanolin content, making the rug naturally resistant to dirt.
Available in one color combination and five standard sizes.
Can also be customized in special sizes.
In the 1980s and 90s, Vibeke Klint often wove in a technique called warp repp. Unlike flat weave, where it is the weft that forms the pattern, it is the warp – the vertical thread – that forms the pattern.
Setting up the loom for a rug in warp repp takes up to 1 week, as there are 6 threads per centimeter. This means that there are often well over 1000 warp threads in a rug.
Most often, she combined warp repp with flat weave technique in her characteristic details in a “lightning” pattern. This is a challenging combination, as the two techniques work against each other and are difficult to balance, i.e. that the edges align.
Vibeke Klint mastered the difficult art of limitation, which makes a design timeless, of which the VK-4 design is an excellent example.
The combination of dark blue and black was repeated in many of Vibeke Klint’s rugs from this period, and was so characteristic that weaver Inge Alifrangis chose a detail from just such a rug for the front page of her book “Vibeke Klint – the weaver” which was published in connection with Vibeke Klint’s 70th birthday in 1997.
