Washable Rug Shuka Dusty Pink Woolable
As part of the Africa Woolable Collection, this Lorena Canals Shuka Dusty Pink Woolable Area Rug was inspired by the Maasai, an ethnic group in Africa. This rectangular wool washable rug bears irregular lines in an extra short pile forming a checks pattern in Walnut colors on a Dusty Pink, Honey Dew and Pearl Grey base. The Lorena Canals Shuka Dusty Pink Woolable Area Rug's rounded uneven edges in visible canvas is finished with short fringes from the base and with the contrasted stitchlines in embroidery ending up as fringes.
The Africa Woolable Collection evolved from Lorena's recent journey to Africa where she was captivated by the wildlife and nature that roamed this part of the world. The irregular contours, uneven borders and bright earthy colour palette in this collection is a representation of total connectedness with the wilderness. This collection is her attempt to grasp the essence of the East African way of life, infused with primitive wisdom, spirituality and plain simplicity. This part of the continent is known for its exuberant nature, rich culture and incredibly talented artisans. Each piece in this Africa Woolable Collection is named in the Swahili language and takes inspiration from distinctive homeware, jewelry and beaded accessories made by these artisans. As with all of Lorena's designs, her hope is to bring people and nature closer together, and there is no better reference than the people of East Africa who are able to live a life in harmony alongside the wilderness.
