OKHA: The Stone Rug Collection

OKHA Design Studio, South Africa has released a collection of abstract, geometric rugs influenced by traditional African Tribal Arts. The Stone Collection features six different designs in six different colourways and is woven using a blended twine of bamboo silk and Himalayan wool.

The rugs are a contemporary exploration of a creative heritage that is evident in many genres of African artistic expression; sculpture, carving, beadwork, body adornment. Geometric forms are intrinsic to African Tribal Art, the presence of simple, vector forms dates backs centuries. These expressive, graphic shapes were less of mere aesthetic value but more concerned with an intuitive and symbolic exploration; in tribal culture art is a dialogue and a connection to otherworldly and unknown forces, the before and the after.

The Stone Collection represents origins, the beginning of things, from which other elements are sculpted and borne. Out of these simple, geometric forms all things can spring. The Collection takes a basic starting point of an ultimately reduced abstract line and shape and rearranges and reconstructs differing compositions, playing with resonances of natural colour, regularity and irregularity of form to create a sophisticated and raw visual dialogue.
