Uilas Noche Blush Black Gold Copper

Designed by Mae Engelgeer, the Uilas collection takes inspiration from the landscape of the Colombian province of Huila. Referencing the interaction of two forces of nature: the river Rio Magdalena and the rough desert of Tatacoa in which the river flows through. In this collection, the use of natural sisal and the irregular edges of each rug represent the heavily eroded landscape found in the Tatacoa desert while the colourful wool stripes are reminiscent of the river running through the valley.
Mae Engelgeer’s interpretation of this region in the south of Colombia captures the richness of life, colour and texture that can be found in the meeting of two dramatically different elements.


Pure new wool, sisal and metallic threads

About the designer

Sebastian Herkner

Award-winning German designer Sebastian Herkner studied product design at the HfG Offenbach Am Main (Offenbach’s University of Art and Design) where his focus was already on designing objects and furniture. Herkner’s work often merges various cultural contexts, combining new technologies with traditional craftsmanship in order to highlight the multifaceted beauty of materials and draw renewed attention to small details.

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 several rug designs, collaborating with local weaving workshops to produce the rugs in the land which inspired them.
