VARJO is a hand woven rug made with the finest quality 100% New Zealand wool. The rug’s pattern is inspired by the herringbone configuration in old hardwood floors and the name varjo (meaning shadows in Finnish) refers to the shadow effects created between the layers of the pattern.
VARJO cleverly masters the fine balance between being a subtle rug suitable for all interiors, while at the same time being very detailed and unique. “The idea was to create a geometric rug with multiple layers and dimensions. I wanted to give the first layer an easy understandable language and balanced color scheme. When you go one layer deeper a dynamic herringbone pattern arises and brings a new dimension and a surprising twist to the rug. VARJO is Finnish for shadow, which translates to the shadow effects that are created between the layers, as the darkest color block almost rises above the others, creating a three-dimensional expression.” Tina Ratzer on the design.
