Pebble Rug has a diverse and tactile surface, inspired by the sensuous feeling of walking across a pebbled beach. With a handwoven structure, Pebble Rug contrasts the materials of its soft, woolen loops with its sturdy canvas base in a cooling jute yarn.
Pebble Rug is a hand-woven loom made in India from 60% wool and 40% jute fibres. The wool is made from 100% New Zealand wool while the jute is made from 100% vegetable fibers. The canvas backing keeps the woven fibers together and makes the rug sturdy prolonging its life while keeping the unique soft quality of the loop weaving technique.

MARGRETHE ODGAARD ON HER DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“Have simplicity as a clarified vision. Look for fresh ways of combining and exploiting color. Make the process as important as the outcome. Share your knowledge, ideas and skills without hesitation. Be specific to order to become general. Use good tools and create new if necessary. Think through your hands. Free yourself from the limits of coolness. Allow things to evolve at their own pace. Listen. Laugh. Dance.”
MARGRETHE ODGAARD ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“The new generation of designers in Scandinavia know the history and craft of our culture, and in that knowledge, we find the keys to choosing the right solutions when making beautiful and functional products for everyday life.”
