Zipa Pink Orange Small | Large

Inspired by a journey through the Colombian Andes, the Zipa collection merges culture and craftsmanship. Designed by Sebastian Herkner, Zipa is woven by hand from pure virgin wool in a small weaving workshop in Cajicá, a town north of Bogotá known for its wool processing techniques. There, artisans use vertical looms and time-honoured techniques to craft these rugs.

The unique patterns and shapes of Zipa were inspired by a visit to the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá, situated 200 meters below a mountain in former salt mine tunnels. The cathedral’s walls, adorned with religious carvings, were dramatically lit, casting colorful reflections that sparked the creativity behind the collection’s design.
