Louise Roe - Loop Rug

Louise Roe creates braided rugs

Danish designer and brand owner Louise Roe has made a series of handwoven rugs featuring alternate lines of layered braids.

The woollen rugs feature rows of fishtail plaits that are braided into a piece of flat woven wool of a different colour. The plaits sit on top, creating a ribbed texture, and the layer underneath adds lines of another colour between the braids. Each rug is framed by a different coloured border at its short edges.

Louise was inspired by the Nordic braided sweater style, and has used the same technique in her brand’s knitted lambswool Sunday Throw.

The Loop Rug is available to order now in four sizes and five colour combinations.
