The Car-Pet is made due to my passion for crafts, history, colours and wool. The design shows the reciprocity between nature, industry, and craft. The colours are inspired by my surroundings. Nature and the colours of the wooden houses in the town where I am based.
The pattern is inspired by industrial drawings from my great grandfathers metal work. Originally drawn in the early to mid 20th century.
Illustrations of forming and forging sheet metal become instantly more abstract when represented in wool and the technique of the "rye."
The Car-Pet is a "rye" which is a traditional Scandinavian rug made with woollen knots on a linen backing.
