Nobsa Blue / Mint

Meaning ‘the valley retreat of noble weavers’ in an ancient, indigenous language, Nobsa, in north Colombia, is also renowned for its wool industry. NOBSA is manufactured here from pure wool on horizontal looms, by hand, in a small family business.

Designed by Sebastian Herkner, NOBSA has an elongated centre, creating the effect of a smaller rug lying atop a larger one. The choice of colours, coupled with a particular technique of weaving in different directions, lends NOBSA its individual character. With hand-finished edges, the rugs come in three sizes and seven colourways.

About the designer

Sebastian Herkner

Alongside Ames’ Managing Director, Ana Maria Calderòn Kayser, Sebastian travelled through Colombia in 2015 exploring the local landscape, communities, and historic landmarks. With a deepened understanding of the country’s people and background he created the Nobsa and Nudo designs, collaborating with local weaving workshops to produce the rugs in the land which inspired them.

Sebastian’s designs take inspiration from the heart of Colombian culture, history, and life. Holding true to the traditional techniques of Colombian culture, both of these designs were manufactured in small workshops in Colombia using time-honoured weaving traditions.
