The Harmony rug collection is guided by the women-led Albanian textile tradition, but with a simple and minimalist twist to the aesthetic.
Co-founders Njomza Havolli and Fitore Syla, who also run the architecture and interiors studio Muza, wanted to recreate the feeling of an Albanian living room, which they say can resemble a small exhibition of folk art.
"As children, we remember our vibrant home with different colours, shapes, figures and ornaments," said Havolli and Syla. "Inspired by these symbols more and more every day, we wanted to reanimate these old forms in a different form and dimension."
There are seven rug designs in the collection – Hug Me, Love Me, Stand By Me, Keep Me, Walk By Me, Dance With Me, Smile at Me – all meant to symbolise harmonious living.
The rugs are hand-tufted from 100 per cent New Zealand wool and are each available in one of two sizes, 200 by 200 centimetres or 160 by 240.
