monika jarg- wood and felt rugs

monika jarg of tekstiil ruumis is a textile designer living and working in estonia. she designs fabrics as well as rugs. most of her rugs are from wool which she weaves, tuft's or felts. a few years ago she designed this "carpet of wood" for a gallery exhibition, drilling all the holes and then embroidering the piece herself. since then she has expanded on the idea as well as finding a carpenter to do all of the woodworking. her thought was to test how little textile material there could be, yet still have the pieces be a carpet. unfortunately she only shows her work in estonia but it is possible to order pieces directly form monika.
