Kinooni Dialogues is a collection of finely handcrafted luxury carpets, bridging the historical symbols of Swahili culture with the remarkably refined craftsmanship of Chinese weaving with both traditional techniques and new technologies. Studio Marcel van Doorn created an edition of exquisitely constructed pieces with a very modern, contemporary feel. (text by Fiona Makkink)
For this project I took care of the (digital) textile design and technical product-sheets of the rugs and tapestries. This included selecting, determining and digitally composing and drawing the different tufting techniques, 3D-reliefs in different heights, material effects, embellishments and colour implementations. The rugs and tapestries are tufted and embellished with care by the craftsmen from FULI.
