Radhi are traditional woven and felted blankets which are worn and used as floor coverings in Nepal. Reinterpreting traditional motifs, Graham Hollick, from Stitch by Stitch, has designed a rug collection featuring modern, geometric patterns.
The Radhi rugs are hand woven in Kathmandu by a community of weavers and spinners. The artisans weave on traditional back strap looms, using the thick wool from their own flock of mountain Baruwhal sheep.
The rugs are then washed in hot water which felts the wool, and brings the whole design together.
The charcoal and off-white colours of the wool are completely natural and undyed, so there may be some slight colour variation from rug to rug.
