Product description

Inspired by the landscapes and colors of Africa, and hand-knotted in certified Nepalese workshops, the collection “Legends of Carpets” translates abstract painting into timeless, woven works of art. Wool from the Tibetan highlands, fine Chinese silk and nettle yarn all possess exceptional qualities which consequently characterize every product. In Nepal, our certified partner workshops have often been in the hands of the same family for generations. There, carpets are hand-crafted using traditional Tibetan knotting methods under sustainable and socially responsible conditions. Due to the heterogeneous nature of fibers and threads, to their diverse colors and hues, and to the personal interpretation of craftsmen, every rug ends up being a unique masterpiece. These objects are living proof that true values are wisely handed down from generation to generation.

Safara - Fire

SAFARA. The volcano – the origin of life. Inspired by glowing lava on dark ground, Safara gives its own expression to our fascination with fire.


Walter Knoll is presenting its first carpet collection. Together with fabric designer Helmut Scheufele, the company has created a collection of nine top-flight carpets. They extend the furnishing excellence of the brand: with traditional craftsmanship, lasting materials and modern design. Inspired by Africa, hand-crafted in Nepal – the carpet collection shapes modern interiors. “The carpets take us back to the origins of interiors and man’s basic need for security while he sits and sleeps,” says Markus Benz, CEO and Managing Director of Walter Knoll AG & Co. KG. “Special pieces of contemporary carpet art are crafted under ecologically sustainable and socially responsible conditions in certified workshops in Nepal.”
