MANGO wool kilim is a handmade decorative tapestry from the NORD-SUD collection, designed by Wiktoria Podolec. The kilim can be used as a rug on the floor or as a decoration on the wall.
NORD-SUD kilim collection is a record of travel memories; the resultant of many colors, smells, elusive emotions; frames recorded only in memory. It is an attempt to confront the very different experiences of two people close to each other; a creative, nostalgic trip to capture the northern lights and the scorching southern sun.
Jadzia Lenart and Wika Podolec spent years gathering inspiration, repeatedly returning to beloved places. Memories of smells, tastes, colors and shapes were poured onto paper and then thread by thread woven into kilim form. The kilim as an object is long-lived and timeless, which has made every piece from the NORD-SUD collection a kind of postcard or personal souvenir from a trip.
Wool yarn used in production comes from textiles recycling. It is a leftover from the mass production of carpets and can not be reused in industry. However, it is an excellent material for handwork. Through handicraft production, we can give a second life to these fully valuable materials. Choosing the kilim technique also minimizes waste per kilim to less than a handful of biodegradable wool and cotton offcuts. Some of the wool yarn has been dyed by hand, so each piece may have a slightly different texture and shade within each color section.
Each wool kilim from the NORD-SUD collection is signed; bearing the serial number and the names of the designer and the craftsman. The handmade technique makes each piece unique. 2% of income is intended to charity.
