The idea was born from the cracks of Botticelli’s, Birth of Venus, (1485) painting. These cracks are inseparable from the surface of the original artwork and have inspired the “Patina” range. Six different tones of the same colour are used on ‘’Patina’s’’ surface reflecting time and the effects of age. It is the over-felting blurring the edges that strengthens “Patina’s” used look. The rug is available in seven colours or may be customised upon request.
