Tufting - 'Treetrunk'
From end 2014 the Tufting area of the Textile Lab worked very hard on the monumental carpet. It involves a moss green carpet, with various pool heights, which changes from colour around: from light ochre, to bright green, to red- and dark brown, just like to changing of the seasons in a forest.
It's a unique palet of diversity in wool colours, which is painted in the dyehouse of the Textile Lab with a base of natural dyes.
The carpet consists of two arches around a middle part, from which the outside edge is realised through hand-tufting. The inside is made by tufting-machines in China by the company Tai Ping Paris. Both parts are put together on location. Realising this carpet took five months and is followed closely by lots of visitors.
